NBC Replaces Leno with Indian Head Test Pattern

PASADENA, CA - Desperate after ending Jay Leno's 10 PM show, NBC executives have decided to fill Leno's old spot with an Indian Head Test Pattern. "Iconic," said NBC exec. Barry Shuckerman. "Once the Olympics end, we'll put up the test pattern with a variety of contemporary music playing underneath. Kinda different, kinda retro, kinda hip, you think?" With Leno, Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Fallon facing programming chaos, the Peacock Network is desperate to quell revolt among over 200 affiliates. Shuckerman seemed upbeat. "If the test pattern works, we'll try using screen savers in place of other shows. I like the ones that show aquariums with fish and sunken treasure chests. The important thing is that, at the end of the day, I still have a job. I hope it works out well for Leno and the others. But if it doesn't, I still want my job. Or a better one. Oh, and good ratings. And a health club membership where they have free towels and stuff." (Photo: Wickipedia)
