Under the deal, which came seven months after O'Brien took the reins from Leno, O'Brien will get more than $33 million, NBC said. The rest will go to his staff in severance, the network said.
Conan's final show will be Friday, and Leno will return to Tonight on March 1.
Our sources tell us that FOX is now preparing to make him an offer for the fall, when Conan can legally come back to TV.
