Conan

Collateral Damage in

Leno's Terror Joke

5/5/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Leno cracked a joke on his show last night, implying that the Times Square bombing suspect doesn't just support terror ... he also supports Conan O'Brien.


During the gag, Leno created a fake Facebook page for Faisal Shahzad -- on which he claims the perp was a member of several online groups, including Al Qaeda, the Pakistan Frequent Flyers Club ... and Team Coco.

Zing?

Look I know you Team COCO nutjobs are feeling butt hurt and all, they sell balm for that by the way, but do you really think Conan appreciates these angry tirades and insults you guys constantly lob at Leno and his fans? Conan is probably mortified and embarrassed that you jackasses are running calling yourselves "Team COCO" and claiming to be his devoted fans when all it is you do is spew venom and hate at Jay and his fans. What an embarrassing fan base for anyone to have!

I find Jeno is about as funny as watching paint peel. Suddenly I'm compelled to buy Bobble Heads...

MARATHON, that was an old as the hills porn movie, way long before VHS, DVD and the internet. So old that Conan would have had to attend an old school jerk off theater to get the idea for that autosexual bear joke. I wonder if he saw Pee Wee Herman there...

Conan lost out because the audience sensed that he was the geek that everyone beat up back in school and not Mr. Tonight Show. The younger ageist crowd flocked to his side when his gig ran out. But they forgot to watch his show in the first place. LOL!



Bad ratings in Hollywood mean lost jobs. LaLaLand is a tough town. They weren't best buddies. So Jay owes him no allegiance. For Coco to claim rights to The Tonight Show was arrogant and presumptuous. There is no such thing as showbiz welfare for bad acts.



Scoop alert! FYI: the masturbating bear skit was probably ripped off from a costume party orgy in a 70s porn movie called Marathon. Google it.

Oh, geez. I haven't watched Tonight Show since Conan left (obviously), and after watching that clip, I remember why. NOT FUNNY. Anyway, I bet Leno was really proud of that little zinger, probably still laughing it up right now. Why is he so bitter and jealous of CoCo, anyway? He won, he got what he wanted. Oh, right, cause Jay Leno is NOT FUNNY and Conan is. I almost pity Leno, but not quite.

So inapropriate, and UNFUNNY!
Let's all be glad that he did NOT procreate
such idiocy could be genetic, we should probably thank Jay and especially Mavis for stopping his backwards genepool from spreading



So when he finally dies all his UNFUNNY bones go away forever!



Laughing at his own unfunny "jokes" so sad :(
i pity you Jay
you used to be so respected, right or wrong
people used to give you the benefit of the doubt (pushing Carson fron TTS, Letterman debacle)
now people see your TRUE colors



You could have done the classy thing like Johnny did
When you TANKED the first few year Carson DID NOT come out of retirement to take HIS show back.
If he did YOU would still be a hacky comedian doing the round is sleesy clubs!!

LOL @Danielle, Yep it's Jay that's the jealous and bitter one. It must be nice to see the world through ginger colored "Team COCO" glasses! You know who I pity? George Lopez, because Conan and TBS are screwing him over in exactly the same way he claims Leno and NBC did him wrong. And he has the nerve to say he would never have done that to Jay if the tables were turned. What a what a whiny backstabbing hypocrite he is! The reality is...



1) He's the one that forced Jay to retire during his contract negotions 6 years ago. He didn't have any problems with playing hardball with NBC and Leno back then. He wanted the Tonight Show and he would stop at nothing to get what he wanted, even if it meant forcing NBC to agree to retire Jay in 2009 and give him the show or he would walk.



2) He's now backstabbing George Lopez to get what he wants, TBS's coveted 11 PM time slot. Anyone who believes Lopez was thrilled that Conan wanted to come to TBS and steal his time slot is delusional. Not only did Conan and TBS force him out of his time slot into the 12 AM one, but they put it in Conan's contract that if the Lopez show fails then Conan gets to develop the new 12 AM show too! It's actually in Conan's best interest that Lopez fails in his new unproven time slot! Not only did Conan & TBS bend him over and f_ck him, but they had the gall to make him go out and tell everyone how much he liked it too! COCO fans are delusional thinking this guy is any less of a jerk then Leno. *rolls eyes*

@ gimmeabreak



"LOL @ Danielle" all you want, but the fact is that Jay Leno is a backstabbing a**hole. See "The Late Shift" for more info. History repeats itself.



If you honestly think Lenos immature, unfunny antics are funny you must be a rather dull and boring person. This is why I'm not taking any of what you wrote to prove to me how wrong I am seriously.



Conan waited patiently for 17 years for the Tonight Show. Why would he put so much pressure on them - all of a sudden - after all that time? And if Jay was #1, and Conan had enough power to force NBC to push him aside, why is he the one who lost the show? Wouldn't NBC be scared of him? Jay has the show, he got his way. If anything, he's the one with the power. Or he just kisses more behind.



Finally, the move to TBS will benefit Lopez as much as Conan. His ratings are gonna get better, why wouldn't he want that?
