“Tonight Show” host Conan O’Brien used his best material for his statement that said he wouldn’t play ball with NBC’s plan for him to make room for Jay Leno to come back to late night

Jody Simon, an entertainment lawyer, said it’s very likely that O’Brien and NBC will reach some sort of settlement that might require him to refrain from working at another late-night show for a certain time.

He expected O’Brien will not boycott his show, despite the expressed desire to quit.

“Until this is settled, I would be surprised if he said he wasn’t going to show up for work,” Simon said. “It would be unprofessional and would expose him to liability.”
