Update: Will Conan Do the Emmys?

The ball's in your court, Coco: NBC Universal TV chief Jeff Gaspin just told Vulture that he would have "no issues" with Conan O'Brien appearing as a presenter on next month's prime-time Emmy awards. "As long as he's not hosting, I'm fine," Gaspin said. So will the TV Academy ask O'Brien to appear? If asked, will Conan serve? We've e-mailed O'Brien's reps and the Academy and will let you know if they have any response. Update (5:45): Vulture can confirm that the TV Academy contacted O'Brien's camp this afternoon, not long after we reported the above. So will Coco do the show? No word yet. The man's busy getting ready for his new TBS gig, and he may ultimately decide it's not worth all the drama (or effort needed to prepare funny material). It could be a few weeks before there's any movement on the matter. Stay tuned!
