NBC Gives Conan O'Brien the Reruns

1/21/2010 2:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NBC execs are seriously considering keeping Conan O'Brien on the air after Friday -- in reruns.

NBC Gives Conan O'Brien the Reruns

Sources tell us the Network doesn't want to introduce a new host for the few weeks leading up to the Olympics. So NBC's plan A -- cherry picking shows from Conan's vault.

Here's the "screw you" part of the equation -- NBC can pick shows in which Conan does not trash the network and does not appear bitter. NBC is hoping the animosity between Conan and NBC will fade a bit.

This whole Leno/Conan debacle has become so anti-climatic. Now I know how most women feel after sex.

11. Still no coverage of John Edwards
admitting to fathering a child with a hooker he hired to work on his "staff" while his wife was dying from cancer?

Classy Harvey, as always....

Why can't people realize that this ISN'T CNN? If you want that kind of news get that stuff from there. For those that are sick and tired of hearing of this Conan story or stuff people "don't care about," then why are you even on this site? This is a great site to pass some time, get some info on stuff other news organizations don't cover AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT, most of it is credible and not some outlandish crap you see on the Enquirer!

I don't know... I guess I'm tired of the morons out there in our little world.

Moving Fallon up an hour is a great idea!
Then Fallon reruns at 12:37am!

NBC this is a win/win!

In reality, all three (NBC, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien) could go away, and no one would truly care...

So you are saying the Jay hasn't agreed to take over Tonight Show? Think he should step down to really screw NBC. NBC should really be raked over the coals for this. All the late night talks are ville, they always were but they really are now.

Jay is #1    

If all these people wanted Conan's Tonight Show to be successful, they would have watched the show. They didn't. His ratings were horrible, as was his amateurish approach to creating his own version of The Tonight Show legacy. Fact is, they didn't watch his stupid show.

HE WASN'T FUNNY. HE ISN'T FUNNY. Conan's brand of comedy is not appealing to most people, hence his LOW ratings. He tried to turn The Tonight Show into a low-rent version of his old Late Show with Conan O'Brien, and nobody watched because IT WASN'T FUNNY. Add to it, that fat, loser sidekick Andy Richter, and it was a disastrous late night formula.

The only reason all these "Coco's Team" losers are whining publicly now (much like Coco, who is on his way out tomorrow!!!!), is only so they have something to cry about and join forces with on the internet. You wusses don't even watch the show! You're probably out clubbing and drinking, you losers. That's the funniest part of this whole thing, is that all the people who are rooting for Conan, don't even watch his show.

As soon as the publicity ends, Conan's ratings would have taken a dive again, anyway, so it's best that this ends with Jay Leno rightly back on his Tonight Show Throne.

As for Kimmel's nasty attitude, he's not going any further in his career than that desk he sits at right now, so who cares what he thinks. If he cares so much about Conan, then Kimmel should quit, and give his show to Conan. Otherwise, stop whining like an infant that lost its bottle.

As for that gap-toothed old geezer, Letterman, you know, the one who abuses his authority, sexually abuses his own staff, and creates a hostile work environment, he's shaking in his boots now, because Jay beat his gap-toothed azz in the ratings. Of course he doesn't want Jay back. Duh...... Letterman is a loser, he's not funny, and I can't wait until The Tonight Show is back #1 in the ratings. Letterman will then crawl back into the fetal position under his desk, and cry, cry, cry.

NBC just wants to take advantage of Conan's high ratings show while they can.The Tonight Show is history after he leaves.Jay's reputation is forever tarnished and only the die hard fans will watch his boring show.
RIP,NBC.

I AM GLAD JAY IS BACK BUT, IT DOES NOT MEAN I AM AGAINST CONAN. It only means I prefer Jay's brand of humor. As Americans, we have choices, however, I wish Conan, well.

A. CNN isn't even talking about this breaking news, imagine that. B. TMZ has decided to report POLITICAL NEWS now that the blue lipped, big eared Marxist is in office. Scroll up to the top of the page and roll your courser over "NEWS" and see what appears. POLITICS!!! So get off your soapbox, moron. TMZ is a liberal propaganda hack site, plain and simple.
