Barbara Walters has forgiven Lindsay Lohan for pulling out of their scheduled interview.
The Liz & Dick actress was due to chat to her friend about her latest movie on November 16, but cancelled and instead agreed to do interviews with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, Good Morning America and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon leaving Barbara very "disappointed: about being snubbed, but the 20/20 host has now forgiven the 26-year-old star after she apologized on TV.
Speaking to Jay Leno last night, Lindsay said she cancelled her sit down with Barbara because the timing "wasn't right, right now." She explained, "I love her, I'm a big fan of Barbara Walters. So when it's right, she knows she'll be the first person I sit down with."
The troubled actress's new PR team were said to have cancelled the interview because they feared it would focus too much on her personal problems, including her father's attempted intervention last month and her current legal issues amid reports her probation will be revoked this week.
Paul Reiser was originally scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote his new NBC series, The Paul Reiser Show. But the network didn’t cancel his appearance after they cancelled his show. The series was nixed after just two episodes, and Reiser didn’t bother to hide his disenchantment with the network… even on one of their own shows.
“They don’t traditionally make bad decisions,” he said of the network, tongue-in-cheek, to the (current) Tonight Show host. Leno has had his own troubles with NBC, but managed to get re-hired after he was fired from his TV show. We're not sure the same will happen to Reiser.

Maybe Conan O’Brien shouldn’t get too cozy in his new office at TBS.
The former NBC funnyman will debut his Conan, a new late night series, at 11 pm on Monday … and that means he’s facing the toughest of all late night competition.
According to TVByTheNumbers, The Daily Show is the top-rated late night show among adults age 18 - 49. The numbers are in, and Jon Stewart is officially the king of late night … but during one of the weeks reviewed, The Daily Show, The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman were all showing re-runs.
We have a sneaking suspicion that all Daily Show ratings spikes come just when FOX News hires new staffers.

This summer is historic in television history: it’s the lowest-rated summer on record for The Tonight Show, which was hosted by Conan O’Brien this time last year.
Conan enjoyed the coveted hosting gig for only seven months before NBC made the well-publicized decision to replace him with Jay Leno … the host O’Brien formerly replaced.
Jay Leno is currently pulling in about 3.8 million viewers per episode, only 1 million of which are in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. But, though he may not be beating O’Brien in ratings, Leno is still getting more viewers than his late-night rival David Letterman - by about 22 percent.

Did Jay Leno make an awkward situation even more awkward? Or was he simply being a good sport?
On last night’s broadcast of The Tonight Show, the talk show host brought up the fact that his program was technically nominated for four Emmys yesterday - though it was for work Conan O’Brien’s crew did.

-How apropos. Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty will need to undergo alterations before returning. A new season will likely focus more on makeovers and less on travel.
-Will Celebrity Rehab net a former tennis star? The reality series is reportedly interested in nabbing Jennifer Capriati, who was hospitalized for an accidental drug overdose last month.
-The summer has not been kind to Jay Leno or David Letterman. The Tonight Show recently had its smallest audience since 1992. The Late Show had its lowest since 1993.
-Speaking of late night, TLC is about to introduce a new program titled Strange Sex. The six-part series profiling “mysterious conditions, unusual fetishes and the kinky science behind sexual attraction” debuts July 18.
After 18 years working with Jay Leno, Kevin Eubanks and his infectious laugh said goodbye to the comedian and The Tonight Show Friday night. The 52-year-old - who supposedly did not leave because of the network’s late-night drama - said he simply wanted to pursue other musical interests including a program that supports high school students.
Eubanks was just one of six band members to leave the talk show. Vicki Randle (singer/percussions), Gerry Etkins (keyboards), Derrick “Dock” Murdock (bass guitar), Ralph Moore (saxophone) and Marvin “Smitty” Smith (drums) are also moving on.
So who’ll be responsible for laughing at Leno’s jokes now? That would be Rickey Minor - the band leader who recently felt snubbed by American Idol. Hopefully, Minor will someday earn himself a farewell montage like the one Eubanks got above.
