Jeff Zucker, the NBC executive who masterminded the whole Tonight Show succession plan, was on Charlie Rose the other day:

JEFF ZUCKER: People calling me names in the big scheme of things and people delivering death threats over a program moving back a half-hour is really incredibly out of context when you think about what you were just talking about.

CHARLIE ROSE: Death threats over moving the program back?

JEFF ZUCKER: Yes. It's been crazy. But that's OK.
