Fox Registers Conan O'Brien Website - Maybe

1/19/2010 5:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Fox has just purchased Conan O'Brien -- at least it appears that way.

Fox Registers Conan O'Brien Website - Maybe

A week ago today, Fox registered the domain name CONANONFOX.COM.

As we already reported, Fox is interested in hiring Conan for a late night gig. And, as we also reported, under Conan's separation agreement with NBC, he'll have to sit it out until September before hosting another show.

By the way, when you click on CONANONFOX.COM, it redirects you to a Twitter page which shows Conan on Fox. You must have a Twitter account to access the page.

Fox Registers Conan O'Brien Website - Maybe

The registrant of CONANONFOX.COM is the Intellectual Property Department of Twentieth Century Fox.

UPDATE:
There are rumblings at Fox that the network did not register the URL. We can't get anyone to go on the record and say that, but we're told top bananas are scrambling to figure it out.

UPDATE: A FOX spokesperson now tells TMZ the company did not purchase the domain name nor did it redirect traffic. FOX believes a third party is responsible and they've contacted the registrar to get to the bottom of it.

Don't sign a thing until September. Make NBC pay everything they owe you.

Hey TMZ……

1. Do you think Conan should tell FOX he will come to their network for FREE? (or work for $1 if money has to be involved)

That way NBC will STILL have to pay his complete fee, rather than only a portion after he’s paid by another network.

2. On that same note, do you think that Conan should tell FOX that if he will come to their network for free they (FOX) should pay any fines if he makes jabs at NBC during the show?

That way NBC still has to pay him and when he bashes them on his show he wouldn’t be the one responsible to pay out of his own pocket. (I’m sure FOX would want some sort of agreement, "no more than X amount of bashes per episode", depending on how large the fine is, etc.)

Just a thought...

WOW, maybe this nice guy didn`t finih last. Conan is now 40 million richer and he is moving to fox to continue his show. Well, I`m done feeling sorry for him.I will continue mocking ugly Leno because he is a greedy old man and a back-stabber.
