CNBC Europe messes up "The Tonight Show" and Conan

I don't know if anyone has noticed - but CNBC Europe made some "interesting" changes to their nightly schedule.
They have started to show a shortened version of Jay Leno's " The Tonight Show" (they simply cut out the monologue...) and pushed the "Nightly News" between Leno and Conan. Especially the former kinda makes me angry - I've been an avid follower of this show ever since they started broadcasting it daily - and the monologue's really are what makes the show interesting.

CNBC Europe has a contact form at https://register.cnbc.com/email/EmailSupport.jsp

If you, like me, don't like what they did to the shows please let them know - maybe they change the schedule back if enough people voice their interest in the shows.

ok - looks like they did it because the US has decided
to prepone the DST change. They absolutely want to show "Closing Bell" and the "Nightly News" life - which doesn't leave them enough time for Leno and made them push O'Brien backward. What I don't get is why they didn't simply move both shows later into the night and leave their integrity untouched.

Well - complaining might still help. It would also let them know how many people are actually watching these shows. CNBC being a business-station, they've wanted to cancel the shows for quite a while now.

I think many cablecom regions don't even have CNBC so consider yourself lucky.

I do.

I didn't realize that. I guess I'm spoiled by the large number of channels on Bluewin TV :-)
