Over the holidays, Conan O'Brien got a call from David Letterman making sure there were no hard feelings between the two.

O'Brien said that things have "always been good. I said he didn't owe me a phone call, but I appreciated it."

Although he still would not be thrilled to get a call from Jay Leno!

"We all know the story," he added.

The real loss for the Conester is no longer being a part of NBC.

"That company meant a lot to me," said Conan.

Sad. Glad he's doing so well at TBS!

    yes, we "all know the story", c'ob: once upon a time, in a land far, far away….your show sucked, the ratings sucked, they gave you $45M to go away. the end.

    I do not understand why Conan is still Jay-bashing publicly. Is Jay the reason you got poor ratings? Should you have been offered that job in the first place? Is Jay the reason why only 1million people watch your show while over 8million watch Jersey Shore? When will Conan and Andy stop with the blame game and accept responsibility for the boring show they put out?

    I must be from another planet but I never thought Conan was that funny. Jimmy Fallon on the other hand is hysterical. By the way, Leno was the one that was squeezed out of his time slot to make room for Conan. Conan's ratings were lower than Leno's when Conan replaced Leno. The network saw this and decided to go back to Leno. Grow up Conan….I would have loved to have received a 45 million dollar severance when I was laid off along with the rest of my department 4 months ago!!!!!!!

    everyone has their own tastes, and i'm no big fan of conan's. yet it is true only 1 mill watch his show and the latest arsenio hall, george lopez ("it's gonna be a party") whose one trick pony hispanic only humor is pointlessly unfunny.
    but jay is the worst interviewer, no longer funny, yet still wins almost every night. way to go america.
    love em or hate em, dave is brighter, funnier, and a much better interviewer than any of these pretenders.
    conan should stick to writing. he's good at it.

    Conan is not funny. He was handed the Tonight Show on a silver platter knocking Jay out of a job - Jay didn't want to leave. When no one watched Conan, he was let go - handsomely. What a douchebag.

    seriously im tired of hearing conan complaining. get over it. he should be lucky tbs even wanted him bc he's not funny at all

    I'm not a fan of Leno's black hole of comedy, but the reality is that Leno doesn't own The Tonight Show. NBC does. O'Brien made the mistake of signing a really bad contract, one that had no time slot guarantee.

    I have watched Conan's show a couple of times just to see what he was all about, and I NEVER laughed NOT one time! He was constantly over-talking his guest - which annoys the hell outta me, but I was stupid enough to give him another try. I like to give someone a chance, he suked and I've never watched again. I think its funny that he has a 11 o'clock time slot. Thats fuked up.

    What an ungrateful pig. He got $45M to do nothing, got a new show, got undeserved sympathy, and he is still bashing Jay? He was likable, but never funny and now he is just pathetic.

    Go cry in your money Conan!

    Conana needs to stfu!The reason why they let him go was:low ratings.He needs to blame only himself,plus he was paid off handsomely.Conan is annoying and not funny.

    Waaaaa. I was plucked from near obscurity and given my own late night talk show. Waaaaaa. The tonight show was slotted for me a few years in advance and the host agreed to step aside at that time. Waaaaaaaa. Once I got the show my ratings weren't very good and they wanted to move me to my old time slot, Waaaaaaaa. I refused but they paid me tens of millions to take a long vacation. Waaaaaaa. I made my comeback to cable and now I am back to near obscurity. Waaaaaaa. The world is so mean to me. Waaaaaaaa.

    Leno behaved far classier when Conan took his slot. Conan is myopic.
