There's been a lot of talk in recent days about failures in late night programming. I've also heard it's a surefire way to build up web traffic. So as Jay's and Conan's shows enter the graveyard short-lived late night programs, I just thought I'd let them know they're not alone. Here's a little tribute to their Nielsen-challenged brethren :
The Chevy Chase Show (guest Goldie Hawn)
September 7, 1993 – October 1, 1993
The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers (guest Pee Wee Herman)
October 6, 1986 – October 28, 1988
The Pat Sajak Show (guest Werner Klemperer)
January 9, 1989 - April 13, 1990
and, the one you've all been waiting for...
The Magic Hour (guest Howard Stern)
June 8 – September 4, 1998
Conan, we at the Temp Diaries wish you and your staff the best of luck. You deserve better and I hope you find it (and hire me, perhaps?). Jay, you can piss off.
