Conan O’Brien might move to FOX

The Wall Street Journal via The New York Post says Conan O’Brien has already started talking with FOX.

“This level of sh- – -iness was not expected,” one source said.

“He’s done a great job for NBC. He moved his entire staff, he moved his family to LA. And five months later, they repay him like this?”

Jerry Seinfeld, who has a new show on NBC and is a friend of Leno, predictably defended them both:

“What did the network do to Conan? I don’t think anyone’s preventing people from watching Conan,” he said during an appearance to hype his new NBC show, “The Marriage Ref.”

No, no one’s preventing people from watching Conan, but I think Jerry’s deliberately missing the point. Let’s replace Jerry’s new show with 30 minutes of barking dogs and move it to a 2 AM time slot and see how he feels. I mean, no one’s preventing people from watching The Marriage Ref, so it should be all good, right? Just like if you slashed NBC chairman’s Jeff Gaspin’s tires. He can still drive. All he has to do is get new tires. That last one was for you, Conan. Wink, wink.

    Conan leaving can only improve NBC.

    Why don’t they put Leno on AFTER Conan? After all it’s his stupid show nobody watched with his contrived “jaywalking” We put on funnier skits in 6tth grade than Leno has provided. He is just not funny, and Seinfeld’s schtick is also pretty tiresome. He and Leno are both too whiny

    That’s bs, Marci. Conan is the best thing on NBC.

    Conan should move to Fox just on principal alone. It’s a slap to the face! Jay Leno simply isn’t funny. Conan is hilarious. Not to mention that Jimmy Fallon is getting crapped on pretty bad too.
