The most unloved name on the Internet today? Not a misbehaving starlet, but media giant NBC.
Outrage toward the network and its decision to put not-ready-for-primetime host Jay Leno back to his old Tonight Show 11:35 p.m. timeslot and to bump Conan O'Brien's Tonight Show to just after midnight – has officially gone viral. Tens of thousands of fans have taken to the Internet to show their support for the spurned O'Brien, who spoke out publicly against NBC's decision this week.
Abetting the crusade, according to The New York Times, Los Angeles artist Mike Mitchell sketched an heroic image of O'Brien standing in front of the American flag, his trademark red hair shaded an even brighter orange. Recalling one of the talk-show host's nicknames, Mitchell added the slogan "I'm with CoCo" to the image, which is now a viral sensation, inspiring pro-Conan Facebook groups and making Team Conan a top Tweet.
