Conan O'Brien has so many good vibes string-dancing his way, he could probably have his show on a network called The Diarrhea Channel and I'd still watch it. Which is why I will be tuning in to The Old People News (aka 60 Minutes) for Conan's interview.
Conan O’Brien will break his post-NBC silence Sunday night when he gives his first interview about his departure from “The Tonight Show” to CBS’s “60 Minutes."
But Mr. O’Brien is still under restrictions not to disparage NBC or Mr. Leno. “He flirts with the restrictions,” Mr. Kroft said in a telephone interview.
Flirting is fun, but I'd much rather watch Conan get to first base with the restrictions.
Since Conan can't appear on TV before May, how will they promote the interview which airs on May 2nd?
The limitations imposed by NBC will mean that “60 Minutes” will take some unusual steps to promote this week’s show. Because Mr. O’Brien cannot appear on television before Saturday, “60 Minutes” will have to be creative with its on-air promotions this week, Mr. Kroft said. “I think we’ll just show me talking to him and have to blank his face out,” Mr. Kroft said.
Is he kidding? Can't tell. Steve Kroft is a famous cut-up known for pulling pranks around the 60 Minutes office. Like the time he told a reporter they'd blur out Conan's face, or the time he told a reporter they'd blur out Conan's face. So many prank-em-ups!
