A Half-Strike in the Anticipation List

1) Yankees-Red Sox Season Opener
2) SI's World Series Predictions
3) My Birthday
4) Spring Break
5) Rec Basketball Season Finale
6) Conan O'Brien Sticks it in Jay Leno's Face

In a move that came out of nowhere, recently-ousted host of the Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien, takes a late night show to TBS. It will air every weeknight at 11 p.m. which will lead into George Lopez’s late night show at midnight. I’m hesitant to put a full strike into the list. While O’Brien did find other work, his new late night show probably won’t be successful for numerous reasons. First you have TBS, strike one. Then you lead into George Lopez, strike two. With bad ratings for the first few weeks while competing with other popular late night talk shows, TBS will probably bag O’Brien and Lopez and their whole “late night show” adventure will crumble and they’ll stick to what they do best… re-runs of Friends.
