Conan O’Brien Weighs in on NBC’s ‘Today’ at Turner Upfront

This morning Turner held its upfront presentation, unveiling new programs for cable leaders TBS and TNT. TBS late night host Conan O’Brien was there, and he took the opportunity to tweak his former employer, NBC and its hit morning new show, “Today.”

O’Brien used the recent rumors of “Today” anchor Matt Lauer leaving the program to riff on NBC.

“Matt Lauer says ‘no, I’m staying. I have a long term deal with NBC.’ All I have to say to that is welcome to TBS.”

O’Brien of course had a contract to host “The Tonight Show,” a deal which went sour when NBC tried to move Jay Leno back to the 11:35 PM slot.
