  • Jan 16, 2010 - Conan O'Brien Strikes Departure Deal with NBC -- No Trash Talking




    Conan O'Brien can get a whole lot of money from NBC as a parting gift, but there will be strings attached -- not the least of which ... Conan cannot trash the network.

    Sources tell us NBC wants a liquidated damages clause if Conan says anything disparaging about the network once he leaves. Essentially that means there is a clause in the contract that says Conan will automatically pay a predetermined amount of money if he says bad things about NBC.

    And, as we have previously reported, NBC will demand that Conan not take another hosting job for a certain period of time.

    Sources say NBC will be paying Conan a hefty sum, but that will be offset by any amount Conan makes for his next hosting gig. So if Conan makes a deal with FOX, NBC can reduce the amount it pays Conan by the amount FOX forks over.

    FYI -- we've learned Conan's existing contract already has an offset clause in the event he leaves NBC and takes another job.

    Bottom line -- Conan won't be taking NBC to the cleaners.

        ^How is it a lose/lose? He's one of the most famous people in America. And now subsequently wealthy. It's not like the only time the network discusses these things is when the show is being taped. This whole thing, regardless of whoever "loses," is spun by networks to gain publicity and ratings. Everyone wins. For all you know, there could be a number of other factors besides ratings or whatever their excuse was for canceling the show that canned his show.

              lose/lose in a sense that aside from the money, he did get screwed over by nbc. And now he can't even badmouth them? And likely won't be on tv for so much time...and if he is, it'll mess up his money deal

                He got paid $30 million to quit his JOB. What type of grown man WANTS to talk trash? Just because he has a persona on TV does not mean he actually acts that way in real life. He's most likely completely different.

                  WHO GIVES A SHIT? Why is this front page news everywhere? This is the most inconsequential over-exposed news event in my life. FUCK IT - they both are not funny. Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog should replace both of them. And Letterman should be replaced with "Late Night with Jerry Seinfeld"

                    Im sooo mad about this situation. I personally think Conan get more rating than Gay-Leno.

                    30 millions to quit a job seems fair to me tho.

                    Can't wait to see Conan back soon

                      nbc has become a joke

                      all fairy tales are uncovered
                      myths exposed and pain magnified
                      the greatest pain discovered"
