If that catches on, I’ll sue you


As you all know by now, Conan O’Brien has received $45 million ($33

They're still buds, really.

million to him and $12 million to his 200-strong staff) to leave “The Tonight Show” in exchange for “nondisparagement of NBC” and not hosting a show until September. Where did $33 million come from, you ask? NBC is virutally buying out the remaining two and a half years of his guaranteed contract so with a rumored salary of $12 million, CoCo earned $1.5 million to host “The Tonight Show” for eight months and $33 million to leave it. With networks penny-pinching these days, talk about a costly mistake. Possible destinations in the fall: Comedy Central, Fox.

The Jersey Shore cast is looking to cash in after a successful and much-raved first season. After making a couple hundred dollars per episode in the first season, the cast members are asking for $10,000 each per showing. You think that’s a lot. Each of The Hills‘ cast makes $100,000 per episode. Then again, I guess you should get paid for creating drama in your life. That’s got to be stressful.

Tiger, you know it’s bad when Mel Gibson feels sorry for you.
