Nikki Finke is reporting that Jeff Zucker is threatening to keep Conan off the air for 3 1/2 years if he doesn’t abide by his contract and do his show…which I don’t think can happen…at least not without a big fight in court.
I love that Jeff Zucker is blaming Conan for this whole mess. Yes, maybe Jay did have better ratings (back then), but Conan had the contract, and was set to take over…they should have NEVER moved to Jay to primetime. That was the biggest mistake EVER.
Did they really think his show had a chance in hell of surviving? Everyone knew it was doomed for failure as soon as they announced it. Jay totally stole Conan’s thunder (and continues to steal it), and Jeff Zucker is the evil puppet master. Jeff Zucker should put his tail between his legs, and apologize for his screw up, instead of blaming everyone else and pointing fingers.
