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.

Before he makes any commitment to do more talk shows, he should spend some time figuring out why he is so self-conscious on stage. Maybe hosting a talk show is not his metier. Maybe he is really a writer at heart. I'd prefer to see the smart, savvy Conan on tv than the clownish fool that is really not very authentic to who he is. This is a smart guy, and he can still do jokes that appeal to younger people, but he needs to raise his game A LOT in his next phase. Because I'm sure - more than anyone - he would like to blow Leno out of the water. I like him - I just want to see the smart Conan on late at night, not the fool.

Interesting about the site being taken down.

Now I suppose that NBC will dump every shred of Conan-related material off its sits, and shut down www.hornymanatee.com?

Leno is garbage    

All the posts on here trying to defend Jay sound like someone trying to defend a disgraced politician. Seriously now...

This is very likely a "fake whois" entry. When I looked into it, there are several small differences in whois records compared to Fox.com, FoxNews.com etc.

Domains By Proxy is Godaddy's privacy registration for those who are wondering and not "some guy" as #69 stated.

Conan Watcher    

Although I am a big time Conan watcher Im not mad at Jay Leno. I think NBC is to blame. Both Jay and Conan are great at what they do. I personally prefer Conan but Jay is not the bad guy here NBC is @CONANTOFOX
