Conan O'Brien departs NBC……

In this handout photo provided by NBC Universal Inc., Conan O'Brien appears on the final episode of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien."

O’Brien started his final show by continuing the NBC jokes that have spurred both sympathy and high ratings for the last two weeks.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” he began, “we have exactly one hour to steal every single item in this studio.”

But at the end of the broadcast O’Brien, who is being paid $45million by NBC to leave the show and the network because NBC wants Jay Leno back as “Tonight” host, turned serious.

“There has been a lot of speculation in the press about what I legally can and can’t say about NBC,” he said.

“Tonight I am allowed to say anything I want. And what I want to say is this: Between my time at ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘The Late Night Show’ and my brief run here on ‘The Tonight Show,’ I have worked with NBC for over 20 years.

“Yes, we have our differences right now and, yes, we’re going to go our separate ways. But this company has been my home for most of my adult life. I am enormously proud of the work we have done together, and I want to thank NBC for making it all possible.”
Take the money…..Conan….NBC screwed you….. and messed up…….take the money…….

And you rock……because in the end ….you  leave sounding like a class act……

NBC wants Leno back……..

One night a while a ago….at 10:00 pm I noticed that Jay Leno was on NBC again…I thought re-runs?……Nope…he was back…..

Didn’t Jan Leno retire from late night TV last year?

Yep…..but he was back……

Well, it turns out they want him back…… in his old spot.….

Conan O’Brien….. it turns out…isn’t cutting it…….

That leaves Leno in the ‘cat bird seat’…..and……..

The network has a plan in the works to restore Jay Leno to his old spot at 11:35 each weeknight for a half-hour, while pushing the man who replaced him,Conan O’Brien, to a starting time of 12:05 a.m. Mr. O’Brien would then have a full hour.

Mr. Leno seemed to relish NBC’s predicament at Thursday’s taping. “As you may have heard, there is a rumor floating around that we were canceled,” he told his audience. “I heard it coming in this morning on the radio. So far no one has said anything to me. But if we did get canceled, it will give us time to do some traveling. I understand that Fox is beautiful this time of year.”

Kate Gosselin markets herself with a visit to Jay Leno’s show……

Here’s her back and forth with the returned talk show host…….

Yea, there’s the eight kids thing…..

And no posing for Men’s magazines…either….

And she toned down her hair……

She seemed very low-keyed….

But she will get a invitation for ‘Dancing with the Stars’

She  also had a strong finish after a slow start…there will be more…….
