Before the ink dried on Conan O’Brian’s exit papers from NBC, Rupert Murdoch, owner of the FOX TV Network, announced in a pre-dawn breakfast press conference at McDonald’s, that O’Brian would be hosting a late night TV show on FOX starting at 11:00 weeknights starting in September.

Murdoch congratulated himself several times for luring the comedian to Fox, even though it meant giving O’Brian complete artistic control, without censorship of any kind…not to mention $100,000,000 in cash!

The name of the new show is “F#@K ‘EM IF THEY CAN’T TAKE A JOKE” and the format is anybody’s guess. There is no truth to the rumor, however, that Sarah Palin, who was signed to FOX a few weeks ago will be O’Brian’s new sidekick.

“IF IT’S ON THE INTERNET IT”S GOTTA” BE TRUE!”
