Conan’s contract has 80 million left on it, 20 million a year for 4 years. He can take the money and leave NBC, he can go to another network and NBC has to pay the difference of his salary. So FOX gives him 15 mil a year and NBC has to kick in the extra 5.
So no matter what happens, if he never is on the air again, he will make 80 mil. I wish NBC screwed me like that.
