conan rally nbc NBC faces Conan Rally, snarky celebs at the Golden GlobesConan Rallies are taking place all over the country Monday (Jan. 18), while celebs used the Golden Globes to trash NBC on its own dime.

Monday, Jan 18 at the NBC studios in Chicago, 30 Rockefeller Center in New York and Universal Studios in Los Angeles rallies are taking place in support of Conan O’Brien, reportedly leaving NBC soon.

Meanwhile, at Sunday night’s Golden Globes the celebrities had a field day taking NBC to task on its own broadcast. Some samples:

Julia Roberts: “NBC, you guys are in the toilet, right?”

Tom Hanks: “NBC said it was going to rain at 10 p.m. but they moved it to 11:30.”

Tina Fey, on the rain: “It’s God crying for NBC.”

Julianna Margulies, in her acceptance speech: “I just want to say thank you to Les Moonves and Nina Tassler for believing in the 10 o’clock drama.”

Host Ricky Gervais: “Let’s get on with it before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno.”

We almost wish this saga would drag on another couple months so we’d get more NBC-bashing from celebrities at the Screen Actors Guild awards and the Oscars. Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin could have a field day with this!
