That would have been pretty swell. Chorus kick-line worthy, even.
See, here’s the deal: it seems that CBS had expressed some interest in procuring the hosting services of Sir Coco for this year’s Tony Awards. However, citing contract restraints tied to his NBC buy-out deal, Conan had to turn the offer down because he’s not allowed to make certain appearances until Sept. 1.
Or, at least, that’s what he wants you to think. Looks like the Team NBC/Team Coco hatchet is far from buried, according to this update ping-pong match on Deadline.com. Sheesh. First NBC drones claim that Conan can perform, then Team Coco operatives quickly retract these wild allegations to reiterate that, yes, their man is under figurative house arrest.
And so, the war wages onward. This could very well prove the most ugly and violent conflict in American history since the last time Sarah Palin said anything about anything in the presence of the media.
