And apparently NBC sucks at it. I have never seen such level of incompetence, in fucking up a good thing (out side of the management from the failed banks). First, NBC announces that they will be losing about $200M while broadcasting the Olympic games, and now they are about to announce a $40M buyout of a very talented comedian.
The folks at NBC apparent like to bleed money.
Not only will they give $40M to a younger, hipper comedian to stop doing what he does best. Conan will definitely go to another station, where he will cypher viewers due to the newly found exposure from this whole ordeal. There-by costing NBC in the long-term.
Got to hand it to dumb ass management.
