On hoping Conan O’Brien wins an Emmy: “I’m not that nice a guy. We would love to win the Emmy. I just know we’re not going to win the Emmy, so I think it would be a nice thing [if Conan wins]. Especially amongst comedians and his peers, he is thought of as one of the greats. I think [an Emmy win is] certainly deserved. I know the Emmys isn’t a lifetime achievement type situation, but I do think that Conan—not only was he really funny and very consistent, which is hard—he stuck to his guns.”

On Conan’s sidekick Andy Richter: “You will not find two funnier guys in real life than Conan and Andy.”

About his future in late night TV: “I vacillate. I do love being off. I love not working. It’s really so much better than working, and the ideal situation is having people do my job for me while I continue to get paid. But I don’t know. I don’t know. I think I know sometimes, and then when it comes time to make the decision, then I feel like I don’t know. But we’ll see. When I have to make that decision, I will make that decision.”

If you missed it, one big star threw Jimmy a retirement party – only he wasn’t retiring.
