Conan O'Brien Still Mad At NBC

| Filed under: TV NewsConan O'Brien

Conan O'Jones

CoCo O'Brien did an interview recently where he gave an update on his feelings about his ex-home, NBC.

Turns out, he's still miffed — and we think, rightly so!

Attention is being called to the fact that he indirectly referred to them as Nazis.

Listen, guys, it's Conan. He's bound to put things in the funniest way possible, and to relate how he felt to Indiana Jones being thrown through a truck's windshield by a Nazi, is a HIGHlarious way of putting it.

We don't condone Nazis, that goes without saying, but we do condone referencing movies, DEF Indy.

This is what he said:

"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."

See? Not so offensive.

Now that that's taken care of, let's move on.

Conan moves on to reflect a little more on how it felt:

"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?"

Yeah, I think we can wrap our heads around that generally, even if we can't specifically!

He even spoke a little about Twitter, and how NBC didn't like the idea of him on it.

Why? Were they afraid he was going to say something about them?? He was already under an agreement that he couldn't throw them under the bus in a public venue!

So he responded to them accordingly:

"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 hear that, bb! Glad your new show is going well, and best of luck in the future!!

What do U think about NBC's handling of the situation?? Was Conan wrong to use the Indy reference??

    this is ancient news, and he needs to let go and move on. They did not like him at NBC. It happens, and show business is a tough business, but please stop whining about it.



  2. 2

    Conan should get the fuck over it already. HE IS STILL ON TV and he is obsessed with bitching about NBC and Jay Leno… seriously is he not getting enough material? I used to like Conan but now he's starting to annoy me.



  3. 3

    How is he supposed to get over it when people are asking him questions about it? What is he supposed to do? Not answer? You don't get many people wanting to interview if all you have to say is "no comment."



  4. 4

    What a spoiled child. We should all get $30 million for being treated badly by "Nazis." He has become the very thing that he used to make fun of.



  5. 5

    Holy shit Conan, grow the fuck up! If people keep asking him questions about, just say you don't want to talk about it and change the subject.

    Wah wah wah, I failed, because I'm not funny, but I deserved the Tonight Show anyway because I deserved it. They gave me $45 million dollars, to go away, but I can't, wah wah wah, because I didn't get what I was ENTITLED to. I've tried crying in my money, like you all have suggested, but the Tonight Show was mine, whether or not I earned it or deserved it. I WAS CHEATED!
    Then give back the $$$ Conan! Make an honest man of yourself!

    i watch coco 4 days a week. i think he was treated badly but i would not be watching if he had not been.

    Grow up! Your show didn't do well and they needed to move you. That's business. It happens all the time. We know you were real happy when you got the Tonight Show. We know you were very disappointed and felt a little betrayed when it got taken away, but it didn't work out. That's the way it goes. It's a rough business. You should know that by now. At least Leno is very professional with the public. You are extremely unprofessional.

    I think NBC should make it up to him and switch Conan to mornings. He would be a great replacement for REGIS! "Live with Conan and Kelly" sounds awesome!!!



  10. 10

    GROW THE FUCK UP, CONAN, YOU WALKED AWAY WITH 30 MILLION DOLLARS!!!! YOUR CAREER IS OVER BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT FUNNY, GET THAT THRU YOUR THICK AND UGLY HEAD.



  11. 11

    For 30 million they could do whatever they want. I would survive it and come back stronger. Conan you are doing alright.



  12. 12

    Bye Coco! Adios Gonando! You aren't missed by NBC! Truly talented and funny people make hay out of adversity. This is not funny Conan. What is funny is you will always be a footnote, a b player, what cable channel are you on?



  13. 13

    he is not funny…his ratings are in the toilet…nbc was right goodbye conan ..get over yourself and stop acting like a unfunny 14 year old and maybe you will have a chance to stick around for jays crumbs.



  14. 14

    He needs to stfu and move on.The reason he was fired is because his ratings where low and that's his fault.Plus he got unbelievably undeserved money out of it.So,Conan seriously,stfu!



  15. 15

    Conan, go get some therapy. You need to deal with it, let go and move on with your life.



  16. 16

    Thank you Mr. Perez for being one of the only people who read the article right, even some of these people who commented me under it still didn't understand it. Conan was ASKED about it, so he RESPONDED, and RESPONDED humorously and positively.



  17. 17

    He got royally screwed

    Just to let all you nay-sayers know, Conan HAS ALWAYS been very humble, and very respectful with his comments about the whole NBC switch thing. He could have been nasty and cruel about it, but when I watched The Tonight Show back when this "Hit the fan", he had a bunch of fun, didn't pull any punches, and basically wished NBC the best. He thanked the management and everything. For those of you that think that Conan "needs to get a grip", seek psychotherapy or something, you aren't being fair. Conan is ONLY responding to what he is asked about the situation. He could have made crass remarks about the network, Jay Leno, etc, but he didn't. He handled the whole situation very well. I don't think that many of us would act as honorably as he did given the same situation. Heck, he chose to relocate himself and his family from New York to California with the expectation that it was for a permanent job. It should have been. Back before the return of Jay to the Tonight Show, Jay's Primetime show was a total flop. Conan was getting more airplay. Jay was supposed to retire, so WHAT THE HECK, NBC?
