I can't blame NBC for programming towards age. I was addicted to television as a child and into young adulthood. Around 35 as I matured I lost interest. Now at 50 I do not have cable or satellite TV and watch nothing on TV. However I do not feel sorry for entertainers who 'age out" of the business. They knew the rules when they entered the business and bought into it when they were young and reaped the benefits. It's not new.

Besides, look at the financial consolation they get when they are asked to leave. I'm not going to look up the exact amount, but you know that Conan was given MILLIONS. And I'm supposed to feel sorry for him? Actually, the same applies to all of them, including nice guys like Lenno. Anyway, I'm sure Jay won't shed many tears if his contract is not renewed. The end of his life? Hardly.

If you are over the age of 49, you need to take the story of a comedian and a hopelessly lost television network seriously. And even if you are younger, it's worth considering that you likely hope to live way past 49, as well. I might add that if you are a conservative or Republican, you need to check your ideology and political affiliation at the door for a moment.

Yes, North Korea is rattling its saber again, and Iran continues to threaten Israel. But those are like repeats of The Tonight Show, old news. No, we have a bigger battle...
