Jerry Seinfeld to Replace Conan O'Brien?
Conan O'Brien’s ratings have been slipping in recent months so badly that NBC is reportedly looking for a replacement! Popeater reports that network executives have begun informal talks to find a new late night funny man for the time slot.

A source says, "NBC just can't carry on like this. 'The Tonight Show' has lost 52 percent of its viewership in just one year. The November ratings will be the show's lowest in 15 years. They would be idiots to not be having the replacement conversation.”

Insiders say the one man on everyone’s wish list is Jerry Seinfeld. But getting him to commit is another thing. Jerry had a hit show on NBC for nine years, but has been off the network since 1998.

Conan’s people are vehemently denying the speculation. NBC spokesperson Drew Shane responded: "Completely false. There are no conversations happening. Conan is the host of the 'Tonight Show.'"
