Conan O’Brien Turned Down Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, Letterman

Conan O’Brien has been offered and turned down more interviews to tell his side of the story, reports Rob Shuter on Popeater.com.

O’Brien was offered a chance to talk about his departure from NBC with Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and David Letterman, but turned them all down.

It may be a wise decision on O’Brien’s part, who was watched by 13 million viewers on his "60 Minutes" interview, for realizing that overexposure could make him appear as if he’s whining, the article notes.

"TV insiders tell me that Conan now needs to shut up and focus on his future if he doesn’t always want to be known as the guy that hosted ‘The Tonight Show’ for a few months," Shuter writes.


  1. If this was the case, he shouldn’t have even done “60 Minutes in the first place.

  2. As I understood things, Conan was contractually unable to speak about the issue until the time he gave the 60 Minutes interview. He than stated his opinion on the matter. Now there is no more need to have him re-hash the old wounds. Go forward and finish your standup comedy tour. Good luck with your TBS show.
