Hot Coco: FX Wants Conan, Too

Network chief admits Fox is a more likely home for O’Brien. But it would sign him “in a heartbeat”

Add FX to the list of possible suitors for Conan O’Brien.

Speaking to reporters at this morning’s closing session of the winter TV Critics Assn. press tour, Landgraf said he’d sign Coco "in a heartbeat," according to multiple Twitter accounts from people in attendance.
Of course, FX sibling Fox may already have dibs on O’Brien — assuming the network decides to man up and take a chance on Conan.

"I think (Fox and FX chief Peter Rice) gets to decide whether Conan gets to go to the big brother or the little brother," Broadcasting & Cable reported Landgraf as saying. The executive also called the odds of O’Brien landing at FX small.

"But we’ll see how it plays out," Landgraf said, according to B&C.
