Conan on Jay Leno: "I Sleep Well at Night" – Watch the Full Interview

Written by , Posted in General

Despite his non-disparagement agreement, Conan threw some barbs at both NBC and Jay Leno during his 60 minutes interview.  The most interesting part of the interview, was the revelation that NBC would have had to pay Jay Leno $150 million dollars to go away.  Apparently, Leno’s contract was for a much bigger sum than Conan’s, so it would cost NBC a lot less to pay Conan off.  Conan thinks this is the main reason for their decision, but he takes issue with NBC spinning it in the press by bad-mouthing his performance.  One more thing – did I mention that Conan looks hot with the beard?  Watch the interview below.
