Tonight Show Host, Conan O'Brien, signs his walking papers "late at night"... It's now Jay Leno!

After days of tense negotiations, "The Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien signed an agreement early Thursday to part ways with NBC, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The deal clears the way for rival Jay Leno to reclaim his old show at 11:35 p.m. O'Brien signed the agreement around 1 a.m. Pacific time.

While details on the final agreement were unclear, the deal was expected to include a payout of about $32 million for O'Brien and about $12 million for his staff.
