And so it ends. Around 1 a.m. this morning, Late Night Show host Conan O'Brien and NBC signed a deal, getting him around $32 million and some $12 million for his staff. Tomorrow night is is last show, but his deal allows him to go back on TV eight months from now. Jay Leno will return on March 1st with a show from 11:35 p.m. to 12:35 p.m. After that, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" will air from 12:35 to 1:35 a.m. Tomorrow night, Conan will say goodbye--at least temporarily--with guests Will Ferrell, Tom Hanks, and musical guest Neil Young.
