The settlement states that O'Brien cannot make any "disparaging" comments about NBC, NBC Studios, Jeff Zucker, Jay Leno, Dick Ebersol, Jeff Gaspin and Marc Graboff

As of September 1st, the settlement agreement ends ... however, the Emmys air three days before that date. For that reason, NBC will be watching O'Brien's every word.

O'Brien left the peacock network back in January.
