How long does Conan have?

Conan O'Brien is falling further behind David Letterman and it
appears that Dave's jump was more than his spat with Sarah Palin.
Are people sick of Conan or not used to him?
Last week, Letterman beat the Tonight Show by a margin not seen since
his return from heart surgery in 2000, according to The Associated
Press.
I think NBC is not too worried, because O'Brien still draws the
younger crowd, who advertisers worship. And they're waiting for Jay
Leno to return with his 10 p.m. weeknight show, which could provide a
good lead in (unless it does the opposite, and takes away from the
NBC late night comedy audience).

Ha, turns out Jay was the drag, both on late night and on the local news. And Jay led to Conan going to TBS. Wonder how that will work out? I'm guessing that Conan is inspired to whoop on Leno's new "Tonight Show."
