Conan O'Brien says he wouldn't have done what Jay Leno did
O'Brien sounds off for the first time in a '60 Minutes' interview this Sunday
O'Brien tells "60 Minutes" that he could not have publicly handed over the "Tonight" show and wished his successor well, then displace him less than a year later. He made his first remarks about his acrimonious January departure from NBC in a "60 Minutes" interview to be broadcast Sunday.
O'Brien says he decided to leave NBC rather than accept an offer to move back a half hour in late-night because he saw no point in giving his all to a relationship that seemed to have no future.
O'Brien has signed a contract with TBS to begin a talk show there in November.
