Want To Buy 'The Tonight Show'? Well, It's On Craigslist

A quick time out for something completely different:

Mashable, The Social Media Guide, spotted an amusing item on Craigslist that looks like it might be another dig at NBC from Conan O'Brien, who's quite upset about the prospect of having The Tonight Show bumped from its 11:35 p.m. slot to make way for Jay Leno.

4 SALE: BARELY-USED LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW — MAKE ME AN OFFER!!!

The listing continues:

This is a chance of a lifetime to own your very own late night talk show—guaranteed to last for up to seven months!! Really must see to appreciate.

Information for potential buyers:

- Measures 100' x 100' x 32' — plenty of room for a futon!

- Designed for 11:35 but can be easily moved

- Band can be sold separately

- Buyer must honor Barry Manilow booking next Thursday

MAKE ME YOUR BEST OFFER!!!!! (Also willing to trade for Coldplay tickets.)

Linda Holmes at Monkey See has been following this NBC soap opera. As she reported earlier this week, Conan has said he absolutely will not stand for having Tonight moved to 12:05 a.m.
