"Surely they can't be serious!"

So he's working at the same company as Conan O'Brien again. Very different divisions, yes, but still.

That's par for the course in C-level executives. Run one company in the ground, golden chute into another company, lather, rise, repeat.

Well, there goes the neighborhood.

I'm so does this mean that he's replacing the entire evening lineup with Leno, or just Piers Morgan?

fark up, move up. Isn't corporate America great! It's the equivalent of everyone getting a trophy, even if you suck

Zucker sure made facebook a success story.

Subby, methinks you said falling and meant failing...

Dunning Kruger strikes again!!

On the bright side, the future ex-Mrs. Zucker is probably all happy.

Government America does the same thing.

But the government isn't held up as the Be All End All of Human Existence, Bar None, Even Jesus Wanted To Be A CEO But He Was Born Before The Corporate Form of Business Was Invented.

Time Warner announces Jay Leno to take over "Conan", effectively immediately.

Boy do you have that right. We have some new ones here, who have a long history of ruining companies and then moving on. One of our C-officers has driven the last four companies he's worked for into bankruptcy. Three ceased operations. The fourth? He talked our board into buying it and it is in such trouble that it's taking half our profits to keep it afloat. So minimal bonuses and profit sharing pay-outs this year (for us, not the C-officers, of course).

He must go to the right Synagogue.

Interesting, and someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that even when Zucker was burning NBC to the ground the news division was the only thing still making money.

Wow, that's just amazing. He managed to suck all the life out of one victim and then convinced the next victim to keep it on life support. You have to admit, that takes talent, although it's a pretty awful one.

This has to involve satanic magic at some point

Unfortunately, it is pretty common. Executives have something of a boys club going on and, in their minds, it is never their fault that their company fails. Sometimes a company that wants to acquire another will plant a C-officer to ruin it, so they can pick up their intellectual property for a fraction of its value. The employees? Oh, screw them. Ethics was dismissed from the business community a long time ago. Morality died in the 1890s.
