Now this is just plain clever...and funny:

Conan Pledges to Change One Woman's Life... on Twitter

Sarah Killen -- who loves gummy dinosaurs, coke syrup and peanut butter -- is the only person Conan follows on Twitter.

But, but, but I thought it was all Conan's fault the Tonight Show had low ratings?

And despite Leno's declining ratings and loss of young viewers, his show still routinely beats CBS' Late Show With David Letterman and ABC's Nightline.

Jeez, what are all the geriatric insomniacs doing at 11:30 eastern then?

The reason they fired Conan was that if Jay left the network they'd have had to honor a huge payoff in his contract. Jay's payoff, they figured, would have been more expensive than paying off Conan.

The network didn't care who had the time slot at 11:30. They didn't care about the content of the show. All they cared about was the immediate hit to the bottom line.

I DVR Letterman every night. Soon, I'll be doing the same with Coco.

Yeah, whoever said that! I love Craig Fergusen, when I manage to stay awake that late.
