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'Brienwalk 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!
It's because of his comical gingey head writing staff!
The writers of Conan will be filming an hour long special called Team Coco Presents Conan's Writers Live at the second annal Just for Laughs festival in Chicago next month.
The idea is to give audiences a "taste" of what Conan's new gig will be like. Hosting the show will be Conan's sidekick, Andy Richter, who believes the show will be a great way to keep the news of Conan's TBS gig in the public eye, while giving his boss a much needed rest. Andy says:
"It was a good way to do a special that was about the show and not so specifically focused on Conan. After this tour is over, he's going to be a little spent. And the writers are chomping at the bit to get a little taste of performing again."
Something really interesting for hardcore Team Coco fans to tune in for. The rest of us can just wait until October.
