Conan O'Brien's first post-Tonight Show interview airs on 60 Minutes this Sunday, and the TV host is finally speaking out about Jay Leno, NBC, and where he hopes to go with his future.
In the interview, Conan says he never would have "surrendered The Tonight Show and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well â€“ and then â€¦ six months laterâ€¦ But that's me, you know." Conan continued, "[Jay] went and took that show back and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know â€“ I know me, I wouldn't have done that."
Conan also disses the network, saying that leaving NBC was like severing a "toxic" relationship, and though he may have been open to negotiations, it got to the point where "I'm not sure these people even really want me here." Aww, Coco! At least TBS wants you!
It's okay, we think Jay is a douche too...and a seriously unfunny one at that!
