Conan O’Brien was hardly the company man Monday, as the Tonight Show host ripped NBC management, and their fumbling of the current late night schedule, in his monologue.

O'Brien, 46, walked out to thunderous applause from his studio audience; he set the tone of the evening by saying, "Ladies and gentlemen, please -- you keep that up, and this monologue won't start until 12:05. And then where would we be?"

With scathing sarcasm, O’Brien joked about being the new host of Last Call With Carson Daly, before mentioning an earthquake struck California that "was so powerful, it knocked Jay Leno's show from 10 o'clock to 11:35."

He continued: "Everybody wants to know what my plans are; everyone's asking me -- all I can say is, I plan to keep putting on a great show night after night, while stealing as many office supplies as humanly possible. I'm going to rob this place blind. I got 10 cartridges of toner shoved in my pants right now -- just jammed down there."

O'Brien, who might be Fox-bound, said regarding his current work problems, he may "leave television altogether and work in a classier business with better people -- like hard-core porn."
