The basic outlines of Conan O’Brien’s exit from NBC were set Sunday night, Jan. 17th,  The New York Times reports.

The settlement includes a payment of about $40 million, a portion of which will go to the comedian’s staff members. O’Brien will also be able to work at another network by September, and possible sooner.

  2. O’Brien couldn’t do squat in that time slot, and now he gets 40 mil !!!! WTF !! I missed the job boat somewhere along the line. Did I mention he got 40 MILLION for NOT doing a good job. Might just as well have been a politician !

  3. Hi! Sorry that i am asking here – what cms is this? WordPress, Movabletype? Can’t find info anywhere.
