There has been no official confirmation on the date for Conan O’Brien‘s last day as host on the Tonight Show, however, sources indicate that the red-headed comic will likely make his departure on January 22nd.
A source tells People magazine, “Conan does not currently plan on doing any more new shows after next week.” A hiatus has reportedly been in the works since before the NBC late night scheduling fiasco began scheduled to start January 25th.
Since Conan said in a statement released on Tuesday, “I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is [the Tonight Show‘s] destruction,” celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their support for O’Brien.
Ice-T writes, “This Jay Leno shit is all f*cked up. They got my man Conan in the mix!! NOBODYS SAFE in the entertainment biz.. I’m happy to have 25 yrs in!” Honestly, I couldn’t have said it better myself, although maybe Coco could have. She’s probably wearing a black thong to express her grief.
