Since Jay is a terrible interviewer, it'd be better to keep him to monologues and his recurring bits like headlines, jaywalking, etc. That would free Conan up from the necessity of a standard monologue, a format which he has struggled with, and end the competition for guests since they'd be saved for the Tonight Show.
Actually, that is a good point. It always sort of bugged me that it seemed like some higher profile guests were skipping Conan and going to Leno instead. (I mean, what celebrity wouldn't rather be on a primetime show when they would get potentially more exposure.)
The thing that bugs me is now Conan overlaps with Ferguson. I liked being able to watch both of them. Quote:

Yeah, I've watched Daly a few times. I actually prefered the show after the format switch. It usually has more of a music focus to it, which seems to be something Carson really loves (as do I).
I just found it funny that there is no mention of him in this news. Is it safe to assume he'll be gone completely, or are they tagging his 1/2 hour on after Fallon?
