Conan To NBC: Sue Me Over ‘Masturbating Bear’

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — When Conan O’Brien announced he would be taking his late-night act to basic cable, the standout characters from his quirky show weren’t expected to go with him.

But now O’Brien says he’s ready to go to court over one “Masturbating Bear”.

When his new show starts on TBS a week from Monday, O’Brien hopes to have that blush-inducing bear with him, but not if his old network, NBC, has their say.

Entertainment lawyer and labor reporter for the Hollywood Reporter Jonathan Handel joins KFWB’s Michael Shappee to see what might happen.
