Watch the Trailer Jeff Zucker Doesn’t Want You to See
11:55 am, May 24th | by Amy Tennery
A new documentary called “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop” chronicles the 32-city standup tour the forsaken late night host launched after his brutal split from NBC. By most accounts, it paints him as sympathetic, wounded, beloved and, yes, hilarious. And while O’Brien is safely settled over at TBS now, the documentary reportedly reexamines the personal pain he went through during the fallout with NBC.
Yep, it’s absolute last thing Jeff Zucker wants to see released right now.
For former NBC top dog Zucker, who has widely taken the blame for the Leno-O’Brien mess, today’s release of the trailer is particularly bad timing.
Just five days ago, the Los Angeles Times reported that Zucker and Katie Couric were mere inches from inking a deal for an afternoon talk show on ABC.
So, will this trailer derail Zucker’s trajectory? Maybe not. But we bet he wishes it would go away.
