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.

This could all just be one giant stunt. Remember Lenos first year as host of Tonight, his ratings were horrible and Letterman hadn't yet signed with CBS. The rumors began swirling and NBC actually offered Dave the Tonight Show, but he had already felt so irritated he had a chat with Carson who told him to leave. He turned them down and signed to CBS and Leno kept his job. Maybe the same thing will happen here. I wonder if Conan has had a conversation with Letterman.

Jack, if NBC is a pimp what does that make Coco? Oh, right, Coco did climb into bed with Jeff Zucker, and Coco was paid in Tonight Show dollars. I wonder if Coco was catcher or pitcher?

LOL .. people love "causes", don't they? Too bad Conan's fans weren't as passionate about watching his show at 11:30 pm.

Tonight Show was #1 w/ Leno. It should've stayed Leno's. If it's not broke don't fix it. Conan and NBC broke it. If anything Jay should've told them all where to go. Conan is NOT funny, and most people predicted it wouldn't be long til NBC saw the error of their ways.

this is completely stupid. conan had the lowest ratings, jay had higher ones in that time slot, they are not taking the show away from him. it is nto like he is losing his JOB!

it is very hard for me to feel remotely sorry for a guy who has a 40+ million dollar contract that will be paid regardless of what happens, when so many people are barely making it. i have guys we had to split their time between our two sister companies to insure they stay employed. i myself have been down to 4 days a week for over a year now. we do not make a fraction of a fraction of what conan gets. he needs to freaking shut up and quit the pity party. look at the people in the emplyement lines, at missions and who are homeless..... pity conan when his is living under a bridge, not when he is in a cali mansion with mega millions coming his way.

Conan, 12:05 is ONLY 30-minutes away from your regular starting time. Yes, The Tonight show ALWAYS follows the local news, but at 12:05, you could be the start of something big, fresh and new for 2010!!!!, like a Johnny Carson. YOU'VE SEEM TO CUT YOUR NOSE OFF TO SPITE YOUR FACE. Can't you just roll with it at 12:05!

Conan, it's the Network's decision, not Jay Leno. Stop using Jay as a scapegoat.
