    I need to move to New York, where if you’re not getting a massive bank bonus then you’re getting paid $33 million to not work for 8 months.

    They died at a riot like Haitians died at an earthquake. They all should have staid home rather than attend uprisings or natural disasters.

    Stalked his wife’s boyfriend? Or is that his ex-wife’s boyfriend? Either way, he wasn’t thinking with his brain at the time. Not an excuse, but seems to be somewhat typical male behavior.

    Why do nominees lie? Don’t they realize that people with a lot of time on their hands or who are paid to do so check the details?

    On another subject, the green background is tres festive! Perhaps you should put it up in March, too.

    It’s a good thing that Conan’s fan base is so internet-savvy; I think most of Leno’s fans’ computers are still blinking “12:00”.

  • finallyhappy

    I am sad today,. It wouold help if the Fit Trainer’s photo was on the page.

  • JMP

    Good way to contractually protect Leno’s horrible show from competition from the man he screwed over for six months, NBC. Well, at least Letterman and Colbert are on at the time so there’s still something watchable on.

    [re=498499]norbizness[/re]: Most of Leno’s fans refer to computers as “the AOL machine”.

    Today, we are all soon-to-be-out-of-work multi-millionaires. As if!

    Health care fails, costs skyrocket. Excellent – glad I didn’t sell my kidney earlier.

  • contentsunderpressure

    Green. Please change to a jäger hue, of green.

  • gurukalehuru

    Conan’s off the air until September and you count that as a win? Pfffft.
    Again, I say, pfffft.

    I think it is time for the NYS Comedian Contract Termination Tax. Very progressive, just like New York, 0% 0n the first million, 100% 90% after that.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    “NBC will pay Conan O’Brien $33 million dollars, and he can go back home to the television in eight months.”

    My last termination/non-compete agreement was very similar to that, only change the “eight months” part to “12 months,” and the “pay $33 million” part to “we don’t sue you.”

    I am going to start using the phrase “is the thing with (him) (her) (ze) (etc).” Sooo many possibilities. Thank you Juli.
