According to reports, Conan O’Brien is likely leaving NBC over their decision to move Jay Leno back to 11:35PM ET. Conan is said to be upset that NBC is changing things just five months after he moved his entire staff and family to LA to take over The Tonight Show.
The most likely option at this point appears to be Fox, which has been trying to get into the late-night talk show game for awhile. Conan has already apparently spoken to Fox.
NBC is trying to keep Leno, Conan, and Jimmy Fallon (who will see his show fall back to 1:05AM ET) and wants to finalize everything right away but Conan is said to be taking his time, refusing to operate on NBC’s timetable.
