Conan Supporters Slap NBC in the Facebook

1/13/2010 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conan O'Brien's most loyal employees are refusing to abandon their leader -- and have taken to Facebook to rally support for the guy NBC is treating like a redheaded stepchild.

Several people who work for "The Tonight Show" and NBC have united on the social networking site and changed their picture to an Obama-esque image of O'Brien that features the words, "I'm With COCO."

The COCO craze is already spreading like wildfire on FB -- and according to the guy who created the artwork, Mike Mitchell, the image has already been seen by Conan himself.

So far ... no sighting of any "I'm with Chin" or "I Heart Peacock" artwork floating around.

For readers who are too young to recall - or maybe who weren't particularly interested, at the time - it might help to get some background on the whole Leno v. Letterman story. Read all about how Jay Leno acquired The Tonight Show hosting gig, way back in 1993.

Get over it already, he's not funny. He doesn't have the viewers. NBC screwed everyone over beginning with Jay Leno. If it's working, don't fix it. They did and messed up big. Its their fault really but obvious what would happen. They should fire themselves.

I told you this is Conan's Finest Hour and the momentum for a new creative alternative will prevail. It's not a certainty that NBC is screwed up the yin yang, just HIGHLY LIKELY.

It's too bad all these now rabid Conan fans didn't watch his show at 11:30 pm when his ratings showed that everyone had switched over to Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and NIGHTLINE. The numbers don't lie. Over the seven months he had slowly lost half of the audience. Another seven months and they could have put the test pattern on and no one would have known the difference!

If Jay comes back and takes over the Tonight Show, it will go back into first place. It's as simple as that.
