Conan on 60 Minutes
Conan on 60 Minutes
05/03/10 at 10:28 PM by Adrian Villagomez

I just finished watching Conan O'Brien's first interview since the colossal Tonight Show clusterfuck that ended with Conan losing the show, and Jay Leno taking back the reigns. I followed that fiasco closely, and it's still very disappointing to me that Conan lost a job that he cared for dearly. Conan is one of my favorite people in the entertainment industry (put him on a stage with Tom Hanks and I'm giddy), so of course, I only want the best for him. Even though Conan is a class-act, and he urged fans like me not to feel cynical after the Tonight Show outcome, I'm definitely still upset with NBC and Leno. Especially after I hear Mrs. O'Brien's comments on Conan losing the show:

"This was just really really hard for him. It was watching someone's heart get broken."

But the past is done, and this interview, along with "The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour," is a funny, honest, self-deprecating bit of closure before Conan returns to TV. Conebone, we're ready to welcome you and your ridiculously awesome pompadour back into our homes at night so you can keep us entertained. Wait - that just sounds weird. You know what I mean.

As for NBC and Leno, well, they made their decisions and I hope they're okay with them. "It's just business" is not a phrase I put a lot of stock in. Money rules the world, but good men shape it in the best of ways.
