Conan O'Brien Would 'Rather Just Forget' NBC Debacle

Conan O'Brien Would 'Rather Just Forget' NBC Debacle

Conan O’Brien suits up for the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old late-night talk show host had to share:

On aging: “Tall people getting older is funny because they often don’t. I’m like those junk trees that grow really tall, really fast, then fall to pieces. I’ll be doing a monologue five years from now, and there will be an audible crackling sound.”

On Jay Leno: “He certainly isn’t calling me. It’s not like he’s going to sneak up on me in traffic. He’s a guy you see coming from a ways off because he’s usually driving a car made of copper that runs on manure and has gas lanterns. The odds are we will both leave this Earth without speaking to each other, which is fine. There’s really nothing to say. We both know the deal. He knows; I know. I’d rather just forget.”

On moving networks: “What we are trying to do is a mosaic; you can’t really see the whole picture until you back up. At NBC, we were a small comedy club on a cruise ship. At TBS, we’re masters of our own pirate ship. It’s about so much more than who watches the show at 11 p.m. Who watches it at 1 a.m.? Who watches the clip online the next day? Who sees the ad with that clip?”
