Conan O'Brien Supporters

Rally in the Rain

1/18/2010 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conan O'Brien supporters gathered at Universal Studios in Hollywood today -- in the rain -- to protest NBC's mistreatment of their giant, red-headed late night hero.

Conan Rally: Click to watch
The protest -- which gained a lot of support on Facebook -- was set to start at 12 PM PT, but a bunch of Conan's brave, raincoat-clad faithful have been hanging around near the "The Tonight Show" studio for hours.

Jeff Zucker was not one of those people -- but Andy Richter, Masturbating Bear and La Bamba all addressed the crowd.

We're told "The Tonight Show" has handed out doughnuts and coffee to the supporters.

BTW: Conan rallies are also set to go off today outside of NBC studios in Chicago and 30 Rockefeller Center in New York City.

My support for Conan will be to NOT watch the Tonight Show with Jay Leno!!! I hope David Letterman, once again, beat his butt up in the ratings.

Conan has cut a deal to compensate everyone in his staff. Also, the people at this rally are all donating to the Red Cross in Conan's name.

Do some research. Several comics, as well as other celebrities are backing Conan. An internet statistics firm estimated pro-Conan groups on Facebook and such outnumber pro-Jay groups 50-1. Jay is pretty much becoming a pariah among fans and fellow comedians. The Wall Street Journal, Detroit Free Press, Huffington Post and several others have good reading on the subject. This is only going to end in the worst of ways for NBC.
