Conan O'Brien is finally speaking out about getting the boot as the host of The Tonight Show. The comedian took a break from The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour and sat down with CBS' 60 Minutes. Up until now, under his exit contract with NBC, the funnyman wasn't able to talk about the situation.
Coco doesn't hold back from explaining his disappointment in Jay Leno for handling The Tonight Show situation the way he did. O'Brien says, "I hope he's happy with his decision ... I would do it differently." According to Coco, he and Jay haven't spoken a word to each other since the late-night switch.
He goes on to say, "If I had surrendered The Tonight Show and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well ... I would not have come back six months later. But that's me...everyone has there own way of doing things."
Ouch! Something tells us that Coco doesn't support Team Jay.
Do you think Jay screwed over Conan?
