Contraction

Now that the lights are out on The Jay Leno Show, the final piece is in place for The Great Tonight Show Trainwreck of '09/'10 to lurch toward its merciful finale.  In a few short weeks, Leno retakes the spot he vacated last May, and all will be right in late night (or so NBC desperately, desperately hopes).

Of course, the one question mark remaining is where Conan O'Brien will end up.  While there's nothing to report on that front just yet, The Hollywood Reporter has found and analyzed Conan's NBC contract (itself flanked by question marks until now), and does a nice job of cutting through the labyrinthine legalese to paint a picture of what each side walked away with in the divorce.

Still no word on who gets Andy Richter, though.
