NBC to fire Conan, place Leno back in the 11:35pm slot

Can someone explain how this can even happen? I am not talking about fairness or justice or anything like that. This decision just makes no sense.

Update: The situation looks worse than originally reported. NBC has given Leno the 11:35pm slot and told Conan to move to 12:05am slot in a ploy to deny Conan the $40 million buyout NBC is owed if they fire him or cancel The Tonight Show before a certain date. If Conan resigns in disgust, NBC doesn’t have to pay him anything.
