I have a feeling Leo might have used this as an excuse to cut the shows. I think there may be another reason and he just saw this as a good opportunity. It seems like he's done that before ala the erik lanigan controversy:
erik also had a late night show. I think also leo just gets weird about what happens when he's not there.
I used to respect Leo a lot but after he dumped his wife and got in bed with his boss, rammed Erik on air, and throwing GameOn! under the bus within (it seems) a couple of months I couldn't think less of him. As Ryan said, fuck him.
