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……
