As mentioned earlier in GMN, the Conan deal is DUNZO. The final tally? Conan walks with a cool $32 million with an extra $12 million going to his staff. It also means that Friday is Conan O'Brien's final night on the Tonight Show, and by all indications, he's intent on taking NBC down with him! In the following clip from last night's episode, Conan comes up with a clever scheme to produce the most expensive, unfunniest comedy bits ever! (So how is that different from what he's been doing for the past few months? YA BURNT!)
P.S. NBC yanked this clip from their site and Hulu. Mad much?
