Ooh, burn! Despite a whole lotta buzz over becoming part of the FOX family, Conan O'Brien has decided to sign with TBS for his return to TV, multiple media outlets are reporting.

Conan Tweeted about the move, writing: "The good news: I will be doing a show on TBS starting in November! The bad news: I'll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show."

While Conan and FOX had been dancing about a deal for months, since his exit from NBC and The Tonight Show, it seems all those talks came to nothing, perhaps because of limitations placed on any agreements. TheWrap.com says they were going to give him less money and not much of a chance that he'd get to own his show.
