It has recently been reported that Conan ‘ginger’ O’brien is slated to take over Jaba the Leno’s hosting duties on the Tonight Show next year. And Jay isn’t going quietly into the night. According to The New York Times, the late night king has quietly been offered a deal with the following details:

Sony Pictures Television has made an approach through intermediaries to let Mr. Leno and his representatives know that as soon as he is allowed to discuss his next move, the studio will make him a rich offer for a syndicated late-night show that would make him the highest-paid host in late-night television, put his name on a new theater on the Sony lot and give him a financial interest in Sony music artists who appear on his show.

All sounds good in theory, however, Jay apparently isn’t in it for the money (somewhere in Somalia a man just flipped inside out). Jay wants to continue on as the host of the Tonight Show and finish out his run at his own pace. Touching story really, but I’ve just gotten word from the Somali National Press that the man who’s entrails are now on the outside is threatening to sue for punitive damages. So get out your petty cash, Jay. You have another ticket to pay.
