  1. Take the money, have a good time and start his own show on UStream and just rip NBC a new one!!!

  2. I’d put the money into moving my company to Vancouver and beginning creating mobile apps in earnest. I’d still run my business from my house, but it would be a damn fine log cabin in the mountains instead!

  3. Why does Conan even need a network any more? If I were him I’d take the $40 million, invest $10 million of that on equipment and staff and start producing online content. He’s got the name recognition and there’s no doubt his young audience would follow him. Heck he could even buy a few million dollars worth of Roku or Boxee boxes to give away to fans so they can watch him on TV.

    Web video needs a superstar to really take off and Conan’s the right guy in the right place to do it. I suspect a bulk of his audience is already watching him online anyhow via Hulu/NBC, etc.
