Fierce OR Nerdy: Chin Man vs. Forehead Man

a blogumn by slpc

Last week, you chose the name for the pandemic that is still sweeping the nation. The nerdy (and inaccurate, as pointed out by ThoughtChuck) moniker, H1N1, lost by just one vote to its even more inaccurate predecessor, SWINE FLU. I personally voted for H1N1 because, if I died of this influenza, I’d rather people say that I died of H1N1 and not the Swine Flu. That just sounds embarrassing. But then, I’d also rather have a flattering obit photo.

In honor of one of the ballsier moves in television programming, I now give you Chin Man vs. Forehead Man. As everyone knows by now, Conan O’Brien will be taking Jay Leno’s place on The Tonight Show come June 1st. I don’t care if you’re more of a Letterman fan, you should tune in to watch this baton pass.

As for Leno, and this is the ballsy part, NBC has given him a primetime slot every weeknight at 10pm called, what else, The Jay Leno Show. Sumner Redstone and Les Moonves have already voiced their confidence that the move will only benefit competing networks… We’ll see about that.
