Oprah Makes Jay Sweat

I can't wait for tomorrow's Oprah!

I have to admit, I'm not a huge Oprah fan but she does have great interviews sometimes and tomorrow will be one of them.  Jay Leno will be on Oprah answering some tough questions including:

"When they asked you to take back the Tonight Show did you think that you were taking away Conan's dream?"
"America has taken sides and a lot of people are not on your side."
"Have you asked yourself, am I being selfish?"
"Do you think you can be number one again?"

I'm really looking forward to hearing how Jay will respond to these.  I'm sure it will be somewhat of a softball interview (is that the expression?) as Oprah seems to be on Jay's side (evidenced by having him on the show in the first place to tell "his side"), but it will still be interesting to see how Jay spins it.  He's probably going to blame it all on NBC.

Here's a Access Hollywood summary of the Jay/Conan thing with the Jay-gets-serious piece from his show last week.

I'm still Team Coco!  Are you curious to hear Jay's side?


  1. I'm a huge Conan fan. I probably won't be able to watch Oprah [I would if I was going to be home], but I'm sure I'll find the highlights here! I'm curious to hear what Jay has to say. I don't dislike him, but I don't understand why he seems to be the preferred comedian.

  2. Chris - I agree...I'm not anti-jay per se but I prefer Conan and think NBC handled the whole thing terribly.

    I'll post clips from the interview as soon as it's on youtube. :)

  3. I would like to hear what he has to say. NBC did not handle this well.

  4. I never watch either - but I would definitely pick Conan as my preference.

    I did happen to see Jay's explanation on his show last week (not sure why I had the TV on) and it sounded reasonable enough. But then of course it would right???

  5. I don't watch either show, and if I had to pick one, I'd pick Letterman. But actually, he's an adulterer, so I don't like him either now. I'm asleep when all of their shows come on!
