With a deal nearly done for Conan O’Brien to leave NBC, Kim Masters assesses the cost to the network—both in dollars and in the reputations of those who remain.

From the start, there was only one logical outcome: NBC was going to have to pay Conan O’Brien a lot of money to leave. Now the company is said to be coughing up about $30 million, putting an end to what may well be the greatest march of folly in television history.

NBC has had its own freaky and very expensive version of a Shakespearean drama. The king (of late night) was pushed prematurely off his throne, the order of the television universe was disturbed and a great deal of extravagant drama (and comedy) ensued. Now that the king is returning to his throne, the total cost, counting everything, could run more than a couple of hundred million dollars.

I find this ridiculous and a big waste of money! Your thoughts?

I do not like Conan.  I am a Jay Leno fan.  Its a total mess.  They shouldn't have promised Conan and kicked Jay from his spot.
