Reports that NBC may move Jay Leno back to his old "Tonight Show" timeslot and scoot Conan O'Brien back to make room have brought out some vocal fans in the Twitter-Wood community. John August and Brody Stevens both expressed support for Conan from their accounts today. If I find someone in the feed who preferred watching Leno to Conan, I'll be sure to include them on Monday.
In other tweets, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse triumphantly declared that President Obama's State of the Union speech would not affect "Lost," which will air as planned on February 2. Their glee is retweeted after the jump along with Ashton Kutcher's take on "Jersey Shore," Jon Favreau's reaction upon seeing some "Thor" sets and Peter Facinelli's sparkling plans. I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter-Wood report for January 8, 2010.
Twitter Pic of the Day:
-Nathan Fillon, Actor ("Serenity," "Castle")
Conan & Leno pt. 1: @johnaugust Conan is a terrific writer. Love to see him running a show rather than hosting one past my bedtime.
-John August, Writer/Director ("Big Fish," "The Nines")
Conan & Leno pt. 2: @BrodyismeFriend The Chevy Chase and Dennis Miller Shows got more time to develop than Conan at 11:30. Way to go NBC!
-Brody Stevens, Actor ("The Hangover," "Blind Ambition")
Obama & "Lost" pt. 1: @DamonLindelof OBAMA BACKED DOWN!!!! Groundhog Day is OURS!!!!!!! (God Bless America)

-Carlton Cuse, Writer/Producer ("Lost," ""Nash Bridges")
Obama & "Lost" pt. 3: @DamonLindelof Okay. So Obama didn't technically "back down." He leveraged Carlton and I to do something on the show. Two words. MORE FROGURT.
@Jon_Favreau A walked through some of the Thor sets that are being built. They're pretty amazing.
-Jon Favreau, Director ("Iron Man," "Iron Man 2")
