Conan O'Brien Paid $45 Million to Leave "Tonight Show"

Posted: January 21st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Conan OSubmit Comment
NBC has agreed to pay $45 million to Conan O'Brien to end his contract to host "The Tonight Show" in order to bring back Jay Leno into his old spot, starring March 1st.

The network said that $32.5 million will go directly to O'Brien and about $12 million will go to his staff. In addition, O'Brien will not have to wait three years as part of his non-compete deal; the new agreement says that he is free to pursue other opportunities after September 1st. And the Fox network has already expressed interest in bringing O'Brien onboard.

The huge amount of money that O'Brien is being paid to leave is being scrutinized by many critics, considering that NBC is owned by GE, which has been bailed out by the government and has been expected to keep their bonuses and golden parachutes down to a minimum.

Meanwhile, Adam Sandler is more than happy to help his buddy out and has already set up a few movies for them to work on. Unfortunately, it is movies like "The Sandman and the Tranny," "Fire Crotch and Super Jew" and "Dude, Where's My Show?" Watch the video here to see Sandler's appearance.

I would be all over that offer so fast, their head would spin!

Conan... give Hollywood the finger and retire. Get out of the game. Don't stay out of ego.

Hookers and blow, is the way to go!!!

Leno's old fans will follow him. But as usual, I'll only watch him if he has a guest on that interests me.

Congrats Conan!

Conan is contributing 12 million of that money to his crew since he didn't feel NBC compensated them well enough and all 200 of them are just getting pink slips. Hopefully Fox picks Conan up though... their general sense of humor seems to work well together. At least it did in the past when he wrote for The Simpsons.

Reports say that Conan is also taking money out of his own pocket and adding to the $12 million that'll go to his staff.

Ok all that sounds good and all, I mean Obrien is way better than leno, NBC has no taste if they did, then hero's would of been of the air after the second season. But what the f*ck, fire crotch and the super jew. Why the hell would Obrien lower himself down so low to do a film with Lonan that revolves around her c*nt. aka the black hole... lol

If he does get another talk show, he will have to create new characters for skits since everything he has done up to this point is owned by NBC.

45 million to sit around for a year. Sure he'll be eligible to go somewhere else Sept 1st but I'm sure he can't sign on with anyone til then and that's when they'll start working on developing his show either as a mid seasoner as soon as it's ready or build up a grand to do for fall 2011. But my money's on whoever lands him, will be fast tracking things like crazy to take advantage of the publicity this is getting. I wouldn't be surprised if they did work behind closed doors off contract to develop a show and have it launch fall 2010. Could be dicey though.
Either way, Conan's going to make a sh*t load of money between NBC's payoff and whoever signs him next.
f*ck a starving African. If Unduobe Kunoji from Ethiopia could get bank like that, he'd use the skulls of his dead family as shoes to walk to the bank and sign that check in their blood.

I'll be glad when all this stuff is over and done with. Nobody is perfectly innocent on either side, with some being far more dubious than others. Just settle this cluster f*ck for cripe's sake.
