In a last ditch attempt to rescue Conan O'Brien's show, his supporters are planning protests and rallies around the country at NBC offices. Reportedly, one event was organized today that even used La Bamba and the Masturbating Bear. Perhaps, some film footage may appear tonight on Conan's show. It might be funny, but it is unlikely to help the situation very much. NBC appears set to end Conan's show this Friday. Barry Manilow has been set as the show's final guest, much like Bette Midler was Johnny Carson's final guest.
TMZ reported that La Bamba drove up in some sort of funny Popemobile thing to a cheering crowd at 1:50 this afternoon. Conan certainly has his fan base after 17 years on NBC. But NBC's decision to end the show appears to be set in stone, Masturbating Bear, or not.
