Hundreds of Cocoholics (or are we calling them Con-heads?) gathered in NYC, Los Angeles and Chicago yesterday to rally for their ginge hero! The Conan O’Brien fans in Los Angeles even stood for hours outside of NBC studios while massive amounts of cold smog rain fell on top of them. When they start coughing up chunks of their lungs in a few days, they should ask Coco to pay their medical bills. And word on the Internet is that he can afford it now!
TMZ is saying that Conan and NBC have reached a settlement agreement. The peacock will put $32.5 million into Conan’s pocket to go away. A source went on to say that NBC will also hack up another $7.5 million for Conan’s staff. As part of the agreement, Conan can’t take his act to another network until September. But if Conan does sign a contract with another network, NBC would only be obligated to pay the difference. So if FOX gives him $25 mill, NBC will only owe him $7.5 mill.
I know, you came to this blog to read the word “fuck” over and over again, not to do math. Basically, every equation ends with the same answer: Conan is still richer than Tiger Woods’ Ambien supplier.
And Conan might have to have sic the soulless ginge on NBC, because the source also claims that once he leaves the network, he can’t take any of his characters with him. That means Triumph and the Masturbating Bear will have to continue to live in the storage room at The Tonight Show. They will be pissed. I hope Jay Leno loves bear jizz and dog poo on his chin.
