It looks like Friday Jan. 22 will be the last you will see Conan O'Brien on NBC. The network has reportedly agreed to pay Conan $32 million, with an additional $12 million going to his staff.
“In the end, Conan was appreciative of the steps NBC made to take care of his staff and crew, and decided to supplement the severance they were getting out of his own pocket,” Polone told The Wrap. “Now he just wants to get back on the air as quickly as possible.”
The main reason why it took forever for NBC and Conan to settle was because Conan wanted his staff to get more $$$$. His staff relocated their lives, their families, spent major money because of the show, and Conan wanted them to be compensated for a lot of it. What a classy guy!
We will have to wait to see what Conan chooses to do on September 1 (due to the settlement). Hopefully, FOX won't mess him up.
