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.

Damm wish I could get 40mil for being fired and a cry baby. I just don't get what people see in this guy. He should go to cable, perfect for his toilet hummer. Were the hell do I get this deal.

Good, now if he can bring along Triumph, Max & Labomba, Andy and the Pimpbot, I'll be happy. Will he stay in LA or come back to NYC?????

It's fine if Conan goes to Fox. My gripe against him was trying to take the Tonight Show away from Jay.

Conan should have gone to another network 5 years ago instead of insisting on having the Tonight Show.

According to Conan fans only "old" people watch the Tonight Show which is not true but okay. Why did Conan want a show that only "old" people watch in the first place? He should go to another network, do his thing, and see how it goes.

Yesterday Greta posted on her blog "guess who Fox just hired"? She said she was waiting to get permission to tell everyone. Guess she she didn't get it; yesterday anyway. I figured it was Conan.

Perfect timing! If Conan starts in September, that will give FOX plenty of time to build him a new set!!! Please bring your full staff and band with you! Love you Conan!!!

The Twitter account has been suspended. Can FOX really use NBC's promotional pictures of Conan for their own website?

The Tonight Show was classy until Carson left.

The TWITTER account was already SUSPENDED. Thus, proving it's fake. Knew it all along, sadly.

TEAM COCO!

I can't wait until September! I will follow Conan to whatever network he goes to, and whatever times he comes on. UNLIKE Jays supposed supporters who did not follow him to 10 o'clock, and let him sink!!! LMAO

This is all a scam. Fox would not register a domain via GoDaddy.com - also, the logo that is on the fake Twitter page is using NBC property and the typography and color scheme is not consistent with Fox's branding.
