Conan O’Brien Still Talking About Jay Leno And NBC

April 30th, 2010 // 6 Comments

Is this really necessary?

The drama between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, who was leaving the Brentwood Country Mart, with his wife on Tuesday, dragged on for what felt like ever and Conan is already on a new network so let’s move on shall we? Or start a new feud at least.

Or if you are going to do a 60 Minutes interview why not wait until right before your show starts in the fall to get some publicity? Instead this Team Coco member is confused why he talked to 60 Minutes in a show that will air Sunday for what sounds like no reason except to bitch.

“He went and took that show back and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know…I know me, I wouldn’t have done that,” said O’Brien of Leno. Instead he says he would have “Done something else, go someplace else,” which is what he ended up doing as the person in his position. He didn’t feel like NBC had his best interests in mind. He was thinking “this relationship is going be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways. I’m not sure these people even really want me here.” Which is probably true, so on to being a big fish in a smaller more appreciative pond.

    Conan wasn’t allowed to do any TV interviews until May 1st. That is why his 60 Minutes interview is this Sunday. I believe they taped it much earlier but they couldn’t air it until now.


    The interview was taped in the last couple weeks.

    He was never allowed to tell his side of the story because he had to be quiet throughout because too much was at stake including the severance of his entire staff.

    He has a tour to promote and he if finally able to talk – legally. So there is every reason for him to do this. And I’m sure this will be handled with as much class as he handled the entire situation.


    If he waited until the fall, it’d be called old news and he’s “just doing it for the publicity”…he’s talking about it as soon as he’s legally able to. How else to get it out of the way as soon as possible, and therefore “move on”? Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t?

    you’re an idiot! Conan was treated so unfairly and he never got a chance to express his side of the story. Like the comments before me, he’s talking about it the soonest he’s legally allowed. You should at least understand the situation before saying that he’s trying to bitch. The guy is such a class act, he completely deserves to voice out what happened.

    Treated unfairly? I wish I could get treated unfairly and get 30 mil. Please don’t feel sorry for any of these people. They have more money than they know what to do with.

    I just don’t get all you people feeling sorry for Conan, who basically got paid $43M, that’s Million, to take the summer off and then start up a new job in September! Give Me A Break! Who are you all going to feel sorry for next, Bill Gates! And now after all of Conan’s B.S., he’s now doing the exact same thing to Lopez that Leno did to him! People, this is TV we’re talking about here, any show can and does get cancelled for no reason! Don’t waste your time feeling sorry for someone who gets laid off, and then get’s a severence package of $43M! I’m sure you have better things to do!
