Tonight Show logoWell, it looks like it's over: NBC is confirming that they have reached a deal with Conan O'Brien.

The Tonight Show host will leave the show after only 7 months. His last show is Friday night. NBC agrees to pay Conan and his staff $45 million. $32.5 million of that will go to Conan himself while the rest of it goes to his staff, most of whom moved to Los Angeles from New York with Conan to do the show. They thought the show would last longer than 7 months. Silly staff! Some news outlets are also reporting that he can't take many of his bits with him, including Triumph.

Jay Leno returns to The Tonight Show on March 1 (after the Olympics and repeats). His first guest will be Conan O'Brien. Just kidding!

I guess this will be the last time that we use that logo above.
