That's saying a lot in this day and age when the U.S. dollar's worth is floating just above those place mats that go on trays at Burger King.

Yes, for $75 and whatever organs you had to sell on eBay to score a ticket, you get an awesome three hour show. And for another $65, you can get a snug baseball T-shirt and a coffee mug to go into that pile of useless concert junk like the "Flock of Seagulls" sweatshirt and the "Quiet Riot" refrigerator magnet that haven't seen the light of day since 1987.

There's just one hangup: Many Fox affiliates don't want him.

That, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is now the biggest obstacle remaining in a proposed deal between O'Brien and Fox. At issue is the fact that most affiliates will be required to pay a higher retransmission fee to the network, since they will be gaining additional content -- content that may not be as profitable as the low-cost syndicated shows and reruns most affiliates currently air in the proposed 11PM time slot.
