Tiger Woods has not had the best experiences over the past couple of years. He lost his family, endorsements, tournaments and even mistresses! Poor Tiger has lost his Golden boy image and many wonder if he will ever be the star that he once was before things went sour. He went from wearing sponsored golf clothes to regular street clothes in the course of the year when his face was splashed across TV and papers in 2009. Since then he has kept of the limelight until recently when he was upset over a racial slur stated by his former caddy, Steve Williams.

One of the biggest entertainment news items over the last couple of months has been the feud between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien over late night time slots on NBC. You see, Jay Leno flopped so badly at 10 PM and Conan O'Brien flopped so badly at 11:35 that NBC was forced to make a change.

He felt that moving the Tonight Show to 12:05 would basically kill it.
And Conan was right. But since Conan wouldn't move, NBC has essentially dumped him and now Conan is out of a job.
It wasn't supposed to be this way. All the way back in 2004, Conan O'Brien signed a contract which stated that he would take over the Tonight Show from Jay Leno in 2009. At the time, Jay Leno seemed perfectly fine with this arrangement....
