Conan Ditches NBC

Conan O’Brien will no longer host The Tonight Show as of Friday. Sad to see him go. The original proposal from NBC was, after canceling the failing The Jay Leno Show, to move Jay Leno back to his old spot at 11:35 p.m. and push Conan’s show to 12:05 a.m., but Conan refused.

NBC will give Conan $40 million to leave the network. The catch is this: under contract rules, he is not to badmouth NBC or the programs it airs. Which is easier said than done. But the real question is this: is this truly the end of The Tonight Show as we know it?’
