Conan isn't threatened by Leno

Says there will be plenty of room for 'creative' comedy at 11

Conan O’Brien says that he’s no longer worried about Jay Leno grabbing an hour of talk-show time every weeknight. He’s even hoping that with Leno taking all the good guests and political jokes at 10, it’ll free Conan’s “The Tonight Show” to do more “creative” comedy. But there’s a flaw in his plan: he’s on NBC, where “creativity” means renewing “Heroes” for yet another season.
