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.

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