Conan O'Brien used his monologue to trash NBC executives Friday night.
Joking to the audience that he'd be "halfway to Rio in a stolen NBC traffic helicopter" by the time they saw the monologue, he said NBC management thinks he's such an idiot, that they want him to run the network.
Though no deal has been announced, it appears that O'Brien will exit NBC with no non-compete clause in return for a large payout. The Wrap reports that the figure is $30 million. O'Brien's agent has denied that number.
