Conan Has Nothing but Regrets -- Oh, and $40 Million

NBC_Studios_entrance_2  According to the Wall Street Journal, NBC and Conan O'Brien will soon finalize an agreement that terminates his short stint on The Tonight Show in return for $40 million, the right to baffle his audience on a different network and a promise not to bad mouth NBC or to make any jokes about chins.  

For some reason, I can't link to the WSJ article, but here is the New York Post, doing what most newspapers do best, reporting on what other reporters have reported.  Kind of like bloggers that way.

The WSJ reports that Jay Leno will return to The Tonight Show, a fact that suggests that either 1) NBC executives do not read this blog; or 2) they read it and yet are ignoring our recommendations for successors to Conan.  Both possibilities are inconceivable, so the WSJ must be wrong about Jay's return.
