Conan O'Brien talks stall over staff buyout

I've been waiting all day for an official announcement from NBC or Conan O'Brien or God on what the network plans to do with Conan O'Brien, Jay Leno and the late night dynasty that is The Tonight Show. It looks like we'll have to wait just a little bit longer.

Bill Carter of the New York Times reported on the paper's "Media Decoder" blog that the talks between the network and the show have reached a road block over how much Conan's staff should receive as a severance.

It seems the network isn't ponying up enough dough for putting Conan's people out of work in this wintry economic climate. Conan's people are trying to score his staff members who aren't under a network contract at least $12 million, a number the network has yet to put on the table.

Stay tuned, TV Squadders. An announcement about the announcement is bound to land soon.
