The irritated O’Brien continued his feud with NBC and Jay Leno as he finishes his short career hosting The Tonight Show (article). For those not familiar with late night TV talk shows, Jay Leno left The Tonight Show for his own show at 10PM on NBC seven months ago. Conan O’Brien was given The Tonight Show from his later time slot. The Leno show hasn’t been very successful, likely do to being on at 10PM, so NBC decided to move Jay Leno back to the later time slot and told O’Brien he can push The Tonight Show back a half hour. O’Brien isn’t happy and is walking … and spending NBC dollars on the way out (video below).
