How to Negotiate a Better Employment Contract Than Conan O'Brien


It looks like Conan O'Brien may have reached a settlement with NBC and his last night as host of The Tonight Show will be on January 22. It's a shame when you realize that perhaps the whole fiasco could have been avoided if Conan had negotiated a more precise contract.

When Conan signed his contract, he never imagined that NBC would consider changing the time slot of a show that has been synonymous with the 11:35 slot for close to 60 years. But when it comes to contracts, no one should ever assume anything.
