You Gotta Hand It

to Conan O'Brien Fans ...

3/13/2010 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Team Coco strikes again.

Jay Leno

A Conan O'Brien fan posed for a photo with Jay Leno last night with the letters "Coco FTW" written on his hand -- which means "for the win."

Leno got the "Tonight Show" back and Conan got $32.5 million from NBC -- they're both winners.

Still getting your revenge for the JMZ bit that LENO did! This is nothing more then TMZ getting back at LENO for what they thought wasn't funny and was a dig at them. Well, have you gotten your payback yet? Such BS!!!

Ok, to clarify this whole thing, "ftw" did mean "f*** the world", a meaning that has seen less and less use over the years. Nowadays it means "for the win", which expresses that the speaker supports or likes what is in context to "ftw".

So, all of you who still think it means the first things, how about you "stfu". At least that word should be clear to everybody.

Conan's already pretty rich to begin with, so getting paid that huge amount, but having to give up his dream, that still hurts.
I don't think you can put a price on a dream. :P
I've loved watching Conan since the first time I stumbled upon him on "Late Night" in the late 90's. Conan's the man! So brilliant, yet so kind and forthright--that was his flaw, though, you can't be a nice guy in showbiz, and stay at the top. Sad commentary on our world, today, and showbiz, in general.

@mike, i'm not in the u.s. anymore, so unfortunately, my watching conan, wouldn't have counted in the numbers. there are are loyal fans around the world. too bad our watching doesn't count, too. apparently conan's the more popular one, the world over.

jay is number one because he steals from the best--INCLUDING conan! :P
i admire jay's ecologist mentality though, because at least he (TRIES TO) recycle what he steals. :P no point in letting even bad jokes he steals, from even non-comedians, go to waste.
hats off to you, jay!

@mike, though you're team leno, you did make a good point, i.e. the ones who say they're for conan, NOW, but didn't watch him.
i blame them, too. if/when conan ever gets back on the air, you 'conan fans' had better watch him!!! it's on your heads, conan fans who failed him.
mike makes a good point--you do not support a tv talk show host (MERELY) by going online and watching him on youtube. true, you love him, but it didn't show the network this.
true, we're all supporting him, now, but i hate it when leno fans are right--so many conan fans are too late the hero!
if/when conan gets back on the air, you'd better watch him. and conan fans who have nielsen boxes--what on earth are you doing??? why is leno back on top, if you're out there supporting him??? :P
i'm not in the u.s. now, but i stayed up all night, several times, just tweeting and facebooking my derriere off, supporting conan, when jay hadn't taken back the tonight show yet.
conan fans in the U.S., you are THERE!
you're the ones who can do something!
will you friggin' do something???

That Mike guy really likes to CAPITALIZE random words to make his POINT.

How annoying. Rather than try reading his "points", I just skip it because he's totally trolling.

Go Team COCO!

Ok allow me to explain a bit. On the Internets FTW has always meant (for the win) for quite a few years now. For many real life people and main media types it means (F*#k the world). This guy is from the Internets. So its going to be *FOR THE WIN!* Hope this helps you.

Yes we call it Internets.. go win some coupons for it.

The assertion that Conan was "fired" because of his ratings are wrong; Leno's pre-local news show was cancelled because affiliates complained that it ruined their local newscasts and ad revenues; Leno was kept on because his contact with NBC was 100 million + and they didn't want to pay him off. Like an expensive whore, it was cheaper to keep him happy than pay the cosequences. Conan's contact was a relatively inexpensive proposition in comparison.
