It’s been hard to keep up with the specifics of the recent Tonight Show debacle, what with all the characters–Conan O’Brien, NBC, Jay Leno, David Letterman, the ghost of Johnny Carson–and press and nightly developments unfolding over a timeslot many of us spend either out of the house or asleep. Thankfully, last night, Pee Wee Herman (a.k.a. Paul Reubens) appeared on what turned out to be the penultimate episode of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and, with the help of some visual aids, gave a clear, straightforward explanation of the mess.
