(Newser) – As the late night hosts’ jabs at each other and NBC go on…and on…and on, the severance deal between Conan O’Brien and NBC continues to be delayed. TMZ reports the hold-up is over how long O’Brien will be barred from slamming the network—which he did last Spanish. He also wants $600,000 added to the severance pot for his staff, which currently stands at $12 million. Still, sources say a deal should be finalized today.

Watch more highlights from last night—including O’Brien sharing Hong Kong's computer-animated take on the late-night fiasco, Jay Leno and David Letterman turning their claws on each other, and Conan’s original 2004 announcement he’d be taking over The Tonight Show—in the gallery. More drama: TMZ adds that NBC removed its peacock logo from Conan’s monologue Monday, but it was back last night.
