In an open letter released yesterday, Conan O’Brien told NBC to fuck a chin in the politest way possible. TMZ says that this triggered NBC to run off to Jay Leno to begin negotiations for him to take over as the host of The Tonight Show again. But a source tells Popeater that Jay has dropped to his knees, put his hand over his forehead and declared that he’s disgusted by the way NBC is treating him and Conan. Jay is about to jump on Conan’s back so the two can ride out of NBC together.
Put on your dunce caps and read what this source had to say, “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy. Plus, what happens when Jay does return to the 11:35 slot if his audience doesn’t immediately follow? How can he possibly trust the same network that canceled Conan after only seven months?”
Does this mean there’s a good chance there will be a Law & Order: Night Court Edition starring Marsha Warfield. No, there isn’t a good chance, because this source is full of spuds. There’s no way Jay is going to leave NBC. Hell, he’s probably holding the box of baby wipes as NBC removes the ginge spot from their peacock.
And while we’re on the subject, here’s a performance artist’s dramatic interpretation of NBC’s current state.
In case you don’t have an eye for art, the performance artist represents NBC and the ice cream cup represents NBC’s ass.
