Under the agreement that he made when he left The Tonight Show, the host cannot make any TV appearances until May 1.

O'Brien sources say that discussions with FOX have not been about a possible late-night talk show. However, some are speculating that he could launch a show as early as September. Reports also claim that the comedian is considering a possible syndicated or cable show.

O'Brien's Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on TV 30-city tour begins on April 12 in Eugene, Oregon.
