EXEUNT, NOT PURSUED BY A BEAR:Reports indicate that the NBC/Conan debacle is about to come to an end, with Conan getting a large payout, substantial severance for his writers and crew, and no restrictions on his right to compete, and a final week of Tonight Show episodes airing this week. Sadly, part of the deal is that the characters and bits Conan and his writers created will remain in NBC's name , though there's some lack of clarity about the fate of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Interestingly, the linked story (aside from having an awesome headline) indicates that Conan wasn't terribly interested in keeping rights to any of those characters, which might give hints as to his future plans.


  1. clearing the way for NBC to release their new 10pm show, "Law and Order: MBU."

  2. Not quite sure what NBC gets out of it other than spite, since most of the stuff is not even remotely in Leno's wheelhouse.  Fallon (who's been eerily quiet through all of this) might want to use some of it, but I doubt it.

  3. So what happens if Conan is a guest on Fallon's show? Can the bits be used then?

    NBC did the same thing to Letterman.  "Larry 'Bud' Melman," the name, didn't go to CBS.  Pure spite.

    Oops, I guess I should have read the article before I commented, since it makes mention of Letterman.  Still, pure spite.

    I've just recently purchased Mt4 Protect and wanted to tell you guys about my experience with it.
    I was worried about all the Metatrader 4 Malware out there at the moment as I heard you can get them from downloading Expert Advisors from the internet.
    While I don't download decompiled forex robots the last thing I want is some hacker getting my account details and draining my forex account as I have built it up into quite a bit of money. That's why I purchased MT4 protect so it can stop my pc from getting attacked. I think the price is well worth the protection I will receive
    I purchased a copy at [url=] [/url] via paypal and my product code was sent to me within 4 hours.
    I installed it and its awesome! It works in the system tray and scans my computer in real time to detect any attacks.
    The EA optimization tool is so great - you can allocate more memory to your MT4 terminal so your trades get executed faster! There are also heaps of registry tweaks and cleanup features that have speeded up my Windows 2000 computer.
    With Trojans and virus attacks hitting Forex traders all the time now I definitely think that MT4 Protect is a worthwhile investment.
