Conan O'Brien leaving NBC; they're keeping the Masturbating Bear

It looks like NBC is getting custody of the Masturbating Bear.

The popular "Late Night" character made its first appearance on "The Tonight Show" last night -- and since NBC will retain the rights to Conan's comedy bits, according to TheWrap, it might have been the bear's last stand.

Jay Leno will return to "Tonight" on Monday, March 1. In the meantime, NBC will fill the gap with Conan reruns and Olympics coverage.

According to the agreement, O'Brien will have to keep mum for a while -- no interviews or talk show appearances. Conan will be free to begin work for another network on Sept. 1, an insider told TheWrap.

    Im very sad to see Conan leave NBC, as I wont be able to watch him when he moves to any other network after Dave retires.
