Conan O'Brien tapes his last 'Tonight Show' Friday after settling on a $45 million severance package from NBC. But the surge in support – and ratings – for the red-headed comedian suggests that broadcast television is out of touch with public tastes in comedy, say media analysts.
NBC is reportedly set to offer Conan O'Brien $32.5 million to give back the reins of 'The Tonight Show' to Jay Leno. The debacle will hurt the show more than O'Brien, media analysts say.
NBC's $40 million severance to Conan O'Brien is worth 15 lifetimes of work for the average American. But it's no lollapalooza on Wall Street.
'Tonight Show' host Conan O'Brien said Tuesday he would not move his show back 30 minutes to accommodate 'The Jay Leno Show' at 11:35 p.m., putting NBC on the spot.
NBC announced Sunday that it is planning to move Jay Leno's talk show to 11:30 p.m. Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon would shift back a half hour – if they accept the deal.
