Conan is Out!

Conan O'Brien is out and Jay Leno is! Yesterday afternoon NBC has reached a deal with Jay Leno to give the "Tonight Show" back to him. What is included in the deal is undisclosed but Conan O'Brien will definitely get the axe. Brien's last show on the "Tonight Show" will be Friday Jan. 22.

Meanwhile, movie and TV industry blog Deadline Hollywood is reporting that NBC wants to resolve the "Conan problem" by likely by offering him a huge cash settlement and a promise that he can appear on a competing network sooner rather than later.

Sources are saying O'Brien will likely sue and is in talks with FOX to get his own rival Late Night Talk Show. Stay tuned, we'll see who comes out a winner.
