In 2009, Jay Leno left The Tonight Show and was replaced by Conan O'Brien. Later that year, Leno launched his new NBC show, The Jay Leno Show. Because it was in prime time, Leno's show naturally started to get low viewing rates.

NBC then proposed an idea in which Leno would host a half hour program after the local news, and O'Brien would be pushed to midnight (ET). Instead of letting his program start half an hour later, O'Brien said "Go to Hell!" to NBC and left The Tonight Show, and the NBC network altogether in January 2010. After this, Leno returned to hosting The Tonight Show.

Late in 2010, it was announced that TBS had made an agreement with O'Brien for O'Brien to host a late night talk show which would air before Lopez Tonight. That November, O'Brien's new show, CONAN, premiered at 11:00 (ET) on TBS. His first guest was Seth Rogen.

Well actually, Conan was the one who chose to leave the Tonight Show. What happened was The Jay Leno Show wasn't doing so good in prime time, so NBC wanted to move Conan to a later time to make room for Leno. Conan didn't like that. Instead of having The Tonight Show at a later time, Conan just decided to leave.

Conan O'Brien left The Tonight Show when NBC reneged on his deal and brought Jay Leno back to host it. Leno had moved to do a primetime show that didn't work out.
