Conan O'Brien will keep hosting The Tonight Show "until somebody tells him not to," his rep told TVGuide.com Thursday.

"I know there's a rumor out there that next Friday is his last show, but we do not know that to be true," Leslee Dart said. "He is just moving ahead, day-to-day, doing the show, per his contract — still working."
Dart said she did not have any update on O'Brien's plans or negotiations, but said there are "certainly conversations going on between his people and NBC." An NBC rep had no comment.
In his monologue Wednesday, O'Brien cited a TVGuide.com poll
showing overwhelming support for him remaining on The Tonight Show

asked, 'How can I get NBC to screw me over?'"
