Conan and Fox Resume Talks; NBC Says “No” to Conan Appear on “Idol Gives Back”
THR reports that Fox and Conan O’Brien have resumed talks about a late night talk show hosting gig on Fox.
Separately, Conan has been approached to participate in Fox’s “Idol Gives Back” special on April 21, but this is separate from the late-night discussions. THR made it a point to note that it doesn’t mean Conan and Fox expect to be able to announce a deal by April 21 and that the Idol invitation was from “American Idol” producer 19 Entertainment.
The request was taken to NBC and the answer was no. Conan’s separation agreement with NBC blocks him from making any TV appearances before May 1.
