TMZ: Fox Registers Domain Name "CONANONFOX.COM"
http://www.tmz.com/2010/01/19/twentieth-century-fox-reg... /




"A week ago today, Fox registered the domain name CONANONFOX.COM.

As we already reported, Fox is interested in hiring Conan for a late night gig. And, as we also reported, under Conan's separation agreement with NBC, he'll have to sit it out until September before hosting another show.

By the way, when you click on CONANONFOX.COM, it redirects you to a Twitter page which shows Conan on Fox. You must have a Twitter account to access the page."


The registrant of CONANONFOX.COM is the Intellectual Property Department of Twentieth Century Fox

6. So, he has to wait until September to host another TV show...
...but couldn't he start an internet-only show until then? Fox could try to draw in an audience and sell advertising if they could begin a streamed show ASAP. Conan has media interest and public sympathy right now. Why couldn't they capitalize on that and put Coco and Andy to work right away?

7. I was always indifferent with Conan.



I could take him or leave him. And I'm glad he got a good deal after being screwed by the NBC execs.

But if he goes to Fox he can kiss off AFAIC. And I don't care if Fox Entertainment is 180 different
from Faux Snooze. They're both under Murdoch's umbrella.

12. He can't do another show for 8 months. If he goes to FOX, I hope they have something

else in the works that he can do until a show launches.
