In January 2010, NBC announced that Jay Leno, host of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), from whom Conan O'Brien took over the role as host, would have his not-so-well-received The Jay Leno Show (2009) move towards the 11:35 PM time-slot and that The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) would be pushed back to the 12:05 AM time-slot. "The Tonight Show" has never aired that late during its almost 60 years on air. Furthermore, this push-back would have meant that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (2009), follow-up to O'Brien's own Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993), would also have been pushed back to a later time-slot, too. When The Jay Leno Show (2009) was officially canceled and it became clear that Leno would get his own new show at 11:35 PM, O'Brien released a statement in which he made clear that he didn't like how NBC handled the situation. He also stated that he wouldn't continue hosting The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009) if it was pushed back to a later time-slot. Eventually that month, it was officially announced that Leno would get "The Tonight Show" back on March 1st and that O'Brien will receive a severance payment of about $33 million from NBC.

During the time of the "Late Night Wars", in January 2010, in which NBC was re-scheduling its Late Night-program, there evolved the "I'm with Coco" movement, which favored Conan O'Brien over Jay Leno as host (of "The Tonight Show" or anything else) and thought that NBC's behavior towards O'Brien was rude.

Q
Was Max Weinberg the band leader on this show?
A
Conan announced on Late Night that entire The Max Weinberg 7 will be coming with him to the Tonight Show. Although The Max Weinberg 7 is now called "The Tonight Show Band" the only change in personnel is the addition of occasional fill-in drummer James Wormworth as a permanent member.
Q
Why don't IMDb's episode numbers for "The Tonight Show" match those provided by NBC?
A
NBC and IMDb have assigned different numbers to episodes of "The Tonight Show" beginning in late September 2009. NBC assigns #74 to the episode partially taped on Friday, September 25, which was cancelled mid-taping due to Conan O'Brien's concussion, then counts the following Monday's show (in which some of the Friday footage was incorporated) as #75. However, IMDb doesn't assign episode numbers to unaired programs, and lists the Monday show as #1.74, accounting for the discrepancy of one number in the episode listings.
