Conan O’Brien announced he will not accept the move to a later time offered by NBC, causing a vacancy in the seat he took only seven months ago. According to the Reuters article I found on yahoo, although O’Brien has not mentioned if he was leaving the network, Fox had expressed an interest, but has not pursued it further. O’Brien also stated he did not have any offers from rival networks, and was unsure where he was headed. Had he accepted the time change, Leno would have been moved to an 11:35 slot, with O’Brien and Fallon being moved a half an hour later. NBC remains quiet on the issue.
