No, NBC kicked Conan out because the stupid idiots in charge don't know wtf they are doing, anymore than idiots around the punditry circle trying to tell apple what they should be doing back in the 90s.
I mean, wtf is the point of Jay telling your audience, "I'm retiring and handing over the show to Conan in a few years," then making your own show, sucking at that (yes, his ratings were rotten), then kicking out the very person you gave the show to?
What a douche.
edit: after having this come up multiple times, both had declining ratings, though for conan he had the edge on support and some of the crap going on at the top was debatable, like whether or not TTS would lose money for the first time ever.
