Caution: Ids at Play


NBC Tells Team CoCo to F*** Off

January 16th, 2010 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

According to a headline on thewrap.com: “It’s Over! NBC to Pay Conan $30M”

I feel bad for everyone in this situation…except NBC. They really screwed the pooch. They should have let Conan walk 5 years ago or they should let Jay go now, but don’t screw with the Tonight Show like this and then try and act like it’s either Conan or Jay’s fault that their ratings suffered. You made the choice to split the audiences and now you’re enjoying the lack of ratings because of it.

If I were Jay, I’d bow out gracefully. You went out number 1 on the Tonight Show. Don’t come back to it just to milk it. Let Conan succeed or fail on his own. I mean I know it sucks you were pushed out and ten set up to fail and now they’re making you out to be the bad guy…but you have a chance to prove you’re the good guy you’re rumored to be if you bow out now.

I hope Conan is able to go back to the airwaves soon…and it sucks for his staff that he uprooted from New York to come out to LA. I mean Conan will be fine but I’m sure most of the folks on the staff aren’t getting 30 million out of this. It might be hard for them.

NBC, lick my nuts!

    This hatred of NBC will haunt you if they ever decide to bring Last Comic Standing Back. Oh wait, you’re funny and relevant, you wouldn’t be on that show anyways. Feel free to continue the hate!

    I want to restate that Jay will in no way bow out gracefully. He will take the Tonight Show back and have it back to the same bland, beigeness that it was at when he was hosting.

    But, as far as the report goes, nothing has been signed yet. I would hope that Conan bilks the network for more than the $30 million he is reported to get, plus a big payout for all of his staff, writers and musicians. NBC made a poor decision on this, and they should own up to it, and learn from it. NBC…start licking!

    I’m with CoCo on this, Jay has had his time, let Conan shine for the next 15 years.

    I gave Conan a hug once.

    His head is huge and he smelled like flowers.

    So I vote for him.
