We’re told NBC honchos still have to sit down with Jay’s rep and put the finishing touches on a new deal, but NBC has signed off on the plan if Conan O’Brien leaves … and Conan has made it clear that he’s leaving the network, and not on good terms.
Jesus, NBC, Conan O’Brien’s body is still warm. Why don’t you have sex with his wife next? Actually, no, wait. Forget I said that. I don’t want Leno getting any ideas that you’ll toss babies out of a window to accommodate.
