Donald Trump You're Fired

Jeff Zucker, you’re fired! I picture the face of Donald Trump delivering those two deadly words to a flabbergasted Zucker. Last Friday, the NBC Universal CEO’s job was officially terminated by NBC and its new parent company Comcast.

Zucker recently received mass criticism for the network scheduling shakeup which started the widely publicized feud between late night talk show hosts Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien. The feud eventually left O’Brien with the GDP of a third-world country in severance pay and a gig at TBS.

In an e-mail sent to all NBC employees Zucker stated, “Sure, there have been ups and downs in the last quarter century. But when I step back, and think about what we’ve been through, I feel nothing but pride and joy. It has been a great run and I’ve been incredibly fortunate.”

Zucker will officially step down as soon as the deal between NBC Universal and Comcast is closed.
