Fingers are crossed across the nation as Sunday's Emmy awards are rapidly approaching and Team CoCo will finally learn the fate of their beloved leader.
It would be some hell of a feeling of vindication should Conan O'Brien walk away from the Emmys with a statue for his short lived stint on The Tonight Show, but those hoping to hear Conan tear into his former employers for all they've done won't get the satisfaction. Legally, Conan still can't say anything negative about NBC, Jay Leno or anything affiliated with the two.
Bummer right? Well, there is a silver lining.
Though Conan, per his settlement, is prohibited from making "false" statements about the network that could be considered "insulting or defamatory," he's allowed to say whatever he wishes if it falls under the category of a fact.
We think he could work with that!
Here's hoping you get to stick it to them, Conan! We're rooting for you!
