Heres the Story from TMZ:

"NBC has given Conan
O'Brien the option to either do his show from midnight to 1 or leave the network, sources tell TMZ.

Conan Obrien and Jay Leno

As TMZ first reported, after the Olympics, Jay Leno
will get his 11:30 PM time period back. We're told network execs have told Conan they will let him decide if he wants the midnight to 1:00 AM time slot. If he does, Leno's show will only be a half hour. If Conan walks, Leno will get a full hour, informed sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say Conan has not decided what he wants. We do know he's pissed, because he was given no advanced warning this was coming. Conan's people told NBC they are considering the offer. Translation: Mr. O'Brien -- I have Rupert Murdoch on line one, Stephen McPherson on line two, John Landgraf on line three, Jeff Wachtel on line four ...

We're told if Conan gets another offer, even though NBC could block the move, they will let him go and give Leno the full hour"



Im really pissed that Conan is getting shafted by NBC. Leno should just retire and go back to playing with his cars.
 
 
UPDATE: 
Breaking News... Conan on FOX? FOX isn't saying no to the idea. TMZ
 

 Conan O'Brien may have a late night option if the NBC thing doesn't work out -- TMZ has learned FOX isn't exactly backing away from the idea of bringing him to their network. 

As we first reported, NBC is giving Conan the option of taking the midnight spot after Jay Leno, should he so choose.

But a source at FOX -- a logical landing point should Conan become a free agent -- tells TMZ that while they are "always interested in late night" and always "looking to bring great talent to FOX," Conan is still under contract with NBC, so FOX will "just have to see" what happens.

It's not a no.

One possible selling point FOX can make to Conan  -- they can offer him an 11:00 PM time slot ... 35 full minutes before Jay or David Letterman take the air.

I'm a real big Conan fan, saw this coming though.  NBC sucks anyways, Conan's show would probably be better on another channel.  Not a big loss.  I'm sure it was a big deal to be hosting the Tonight Show for him but the Tonight Show was only truly great when Carson was the host.  Jay is a nice guy but a hack.  He has really just jacked people's shit his whole career, Lettterman's style, Howard Stern's segments (and announcer for some reason, and then took away his style, that was the most bizarre thing), and now he stole his spot back.  Pretty weak.

I really hope Conan get's another show somewhere else if this is all true. He has worked too hard to get where he is now and they're just gonna make all that work wasted? That is just fucking messed up.

Conan is a much better interviewer and comedian than Jay. I really hate how Jay makes these "under the breath" comments while the person he is interviewing is talking.

Jay Leno used to be awesome but he is just not that funny anymore, especially his crappy monolouges 
 
His most used joke involves this: HOW FAT IS AMERICA GETTING, RIGHT??? 
 
I've heard that so many times, but I do like some segments, like headlines and jaywalking 
 
Overall though, Conan is better

Giving Conan the tonight show and giving Jay that stupid ass show was dumb.  They should have kept it the way it was. 
 
Letterman and Ferguson is a much better duo.

Well, the good news is that if Conan agrees to the midnight slot, maybe his show can go back to being what it was before.  It has been toned down a little so as not to offend people.  There's no more Masturbating Bear, Preparation H Raymond, or Camel Toe Annie.

I thought the whole reason this happened was because Leno wanted to end his talk show.  Instead he got a new show and now his new show sux and he wants back to his old time and now Conan gets screwed over.
 
my ideal would be Conan goes to ABC as the tonight show...they shift Kimmel to a little later time.  Then I have my 2 favorite late night shows together.  I don't like all the other guys.  Nothing is as bad as Carson Daley's show tho.

I think the move from NYC to LA killed a lot of these things.

As a Conan Baby-someone born while Conan was playing-my dad and the doctor watched Conan when my mom was in labor. So obviously, I love Conan but I have nothing but respect for Leno.

This is fucking retarded.  Let Leno go.  No one gives a rats ass about him.  You notice that in the lead up to this, it was all about how Leno's 10pm show had bad ratings and they might put him back on at 1130?  Well, sorry Leno, but there is no mention of Conan getting bad ratings.  Its all on you.  If conan walks, well there went the last reason I would ever turn on NBC, besides Sunday Night Football that is.

I totally voted Leno until I googled this and educated my British ignorance of American television.
 
Seems to me that if Conan accepts the offer, then he basically shows himself as spineless for accepting such a patronising offer while NBC receive hate for doing what they've done. If he walks for another network's offer then NBC and Leno get even more hatred and backlash than they would have received if he stayed.
 
So it seems whichever decision Conan makes NBC and Leno will still come out in a negative light. Personally I'm not too bothered being from the UK and all.

Where did you dig that up.  Holy Crap!  Thats insane!  Especially since there are rumors the Letterman is looking for a replacement.  He wants to retire and he left NBC just like that.  I would love to see Conan go back to where he belongs!  New York!  
 
 
oh and Fuck Leno!  Also Kreg Fergosuck is so bad, I can't believe he is on TV.  But then again so is Carson Daily. The networks just need filler.  Creg fuckostan is like watching Luane from King of the Hill.  Cept she was kinda hot.

I prefer Conan. I'm really disappointed by NBC's actions and how they are treating Conan and his staff. I really liked the new segments they brought from their L.A. location, like the Universal Studios intro on the first episode, and the anime dubs they did.

Get Leno off the god damn air. He took 5 hours a week away from quality shows because NBC is stupid. It was in insult to Conan then and moving him back before him on late night is another disastrous mistake.

Exactly my thought.  I may not like FOX all that much nowadays, but that type of environment is the best fit (next to something like Comedy Central) for Conan's original style of humor.  Plus he already has a history with them writing for The Simpsons once upon a time...

Conan O'Brien is the least funny television host around for my tastes.  He tries too hard and I can't remember the last time I got close to a laugh out of him.  Jay Leno is okay, but not great.  Still, thinking about it, Jimmy Kimmel worse.  Consequently, I voted Jay.
