Conan O'Brien revealed plans to move on to Fox when his time at NBC is up on "Tonight Show" -- but it's not what you think.

As we previously reported, part of Conan's severance deal is a provision banning him from trashing the network -- and last night, the clever ginger also tested another way around that clause ... speaking en Espanol!

Some of these comments crack me up. For everyone on the, "Conan is a talentless hack" bandwagon, how many of you know he was a writer for The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live? Not exactly positions for the unfunny. Plus, I'm sure most of you are too young to remember Conan's show back in the mid 90s, looong before Jimmy took over, like back in the Pimpbot 5000 days. That was classic Conan, before he moved to the earlier time slot and was censored.

Conan has the most amazing, sarcastic, sense of humor. Anyone who doesn't think he's funny has no clue what funny is.

The whining from David Bitterman is why I can no longer watch his show. It has less humor than spoiled bitter whining. Time to grow up Coco, at least Bitterman started funny.

Jay isn't perfect, Conan has a funny moment now and then. Here's the problem; Jay gets a laugh and moves on to the next joke, bombs and he recovers. Conan gets a laugh and he seems to be so insecure or arrogant about it that he goes into this dragged out infantile face making, silly body movement, noise making rant that reminds me of the average 10 year old kids at one of their birthday pool parties. If that's all it takes to be funny then don't lament, there are hundreds just like him in the local teen center. I get embarrassed for him and the people who find these antics funny. Wether he likes it or not, he doesn't have the skills of Larry, Curly, Or Moe.

Conan is, and always will be, hilarious. He pokes fun at his own jokes when they bomb, not because he is 'insecure' or 'arrogant' but because he knows what is funny and he knows his crowd. He knows when his jokes are going to bomb for the majority of the crowd but he gives them a shot anyways cause he knows that not everyone has the exact same cookie cutter sense of humor; he knows that he plays to an misrepresented audience. So he lays his 'insecurites' out there (to be trampled by cynics like you Paul) as not to deprive the ilrepresented of a good laugh as well. Ignoring a joke that bombs, as leno does, and moving on hoping that editing takes care of his unfunny bits is ignorant (refering to lack of knowledge) and stupid (refering to lack of ability). Ignoring this motive is cynicism at it pinnacle, and as such you never gave Conan real chance to tickle your funny bone and warm your heart as he has done for so many. if you dont like him just change the channel and move on with you life, there is no need to get all uppity and pompous about it. As for me and the rest of team Conan, its been a hell of a ride with many great memories. I hope to see Conan doing shows again real soon.
