With only a couple weeks left in the five-season run of the NBC action spy comedy Chuck, the mood amongst the cast and fans is mixed. Certainly, if you work on the show or just enjoy watching it, a TV series ending is never the most pleasant of times.
Thursday night's episode of Community was the type of offering we've come to expect from this groundbreaking, often dense and sometimes even inscrutable program. There was once again lots of meta-humour, recurring themes and signature behaviours from off-kilter archetypes, and the type of clever wordplay and pop-culture references that inspire awe.
Well folks, it looks like we're gearing up for the final week ever of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. Launched less than 8 months ago on June 1, 2009 (check out our interview with Conan staffer Aaron Bleyaert posted that day), the show will most likely air its last original episode with Conan O'Brien as host this Friday, January 22, 2010.

Boy oh boy, do we have things to talk about! This past week has brought late night TV into the top headlines, as NBC is looking to shake things up once again by moving Jay Leno back into his old post-news slot, potentially screwing over Conan O'Brien in the process.
Later tonight, this June 1st of 2009, The Tonight Show -- a late night institution that has been around for more than 50 years -- will welcome its 5th host. Conan O'Brien officially takes over for the departed Jay Leno (who's getting a new 5-nights-a-week primetime show in the fall) at 11:35pm.
