Conan O'Brien revealed that he would have left NBC over doing what Jay Leno did to him! He explains in an interview with 60 Minutes' Steve Kroft airing on May 2:
“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.
"If I had surrendered The Tonight Show and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well– and then…six months later. But that's me, you know. Everyone's got their own, you know, way of doing things.”
As for why HE left NBC, Conan said it was because he didn't think it would be the best work environment anymore. He says:
“I think this relationship is going be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways. That's really how it felt to me…and I started to feel that I'm not sure these people even really want me here….I can't do it [anymore].”
Well you're going your own way now and we're sure you'll be a HUGE success on TBS!
We're rooting for ya, Coco!
