Conan O'Brien can't stop talking about getting the ax from NBC last year, and his latest rant is splashed in the new issue of Fortune magazine. On being replaced by Jay Leno as the host of the Tonight Show, Conan says, "You know that scene in the first Indiana Jones movie where he gets thrown through the truck windshield by a Nazi? I was thrown through the windshield of broadcasting."
Conan continues, "I made a decision and that decision very quickly led to me walking away from the crown jewel of old broadcasting and, in addition to that, being legally prohibited from going on television. Ten years ago, if my situation with NBC had unfolded, none of this would have happened. Yeah, maybe I was 10 years too late to do The Tonight Show that I wanted to do. But I was just in the nick of time. Do you know what I mean?" Um, we get it. Maybe now that you have a show on TBS it's time to move on and find something else to complain about?
But he's not done yet! Conan also revealed that NBC was annoyed he joined Twitter, telling the mag, "Tell them I would be thrilled if they shut down my Twitter account. I'd love it if that got out. You think PR's been bad up till now? Wait till you take away my Twitter account."
We don't like Jay, but Conan is really starting to get on our nerves with this interview!
