Filed under: TV News

NBC Rock Center

Filling in the time slot of The Playboy Club (RIP), NBC's newsmagazine Rock Center is performing just as poorly by only garnering a 1.0 rating. Ouch…

He really screwed the pooch with Conan, so we're not surprised!

Insiders are revealing that Jeff Zucker was indeed FIRED this morning, after having a conversation with Comcast COO Steve Burke two weeks ago to discuss what would happen after to the two merged.

Zucker reportedly finished finalizing the details of his severance package this morning, hence the sudden announcement to his employees! And now he's talking to the press about his firing stepping down!

He explains:

“He made it clear that they wanted to move on at the close of the deal and I was completely comfortable with that. We had both gotten to the same place. Look, I knew from the day this was announced that this was a possibility. I wasn’t going to shut the door on anything. But in the last nine months it became increasingly clear that they did want to put their own team in place — and I didn’t want to end up being a guest in my own house."

Good riddance, bb!

Let's just all hope things start looking up from here on out!

And in case you're interested, check out the e-mail he sent to entire staff of NBC Universal this morning AFTER THE JUMP!
