Conan O’Brien Returns to Tonight Show for First Time Since Firing2

Conan O’Brien has returned home.

Tuesday was the comedian’s first guest on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” which he had not appeared on since he was fired as host in 2010.

“It’s strange to return,” O’Brien remarked to host Jimmy Fallon. It’s peculiar. It feels like ages since I’ve been in this building and on this floor together.”
O’Brien hosted “Late Night” on NBC for 16 years before joining the “Tonight Show” cast. When he returned to the building where he taped his show, he told Fallon, “all these memories came flooding back to me”.

Following Jay Leno, O’Brien took over as host of “The Tonight Show” in 2009. However, he was infamously let go from the position in less than a year, and Leno took over. Widespread outrage was caused by the choice to replace O’Brien with Leno; many supporters of the comic went beyond O’Brien and criticized NBC for how it handled him. In 2014, Leno departed “The Tonight Show” once more, and Fallon took over.

Fallon and O’Brien avoided talking specifically about the “Tonight Show” hosting drama on Tuesday. However, O’Brien mentioned to the presenter how “weird” it feels to have “someone else in your studio,” pointing out that Kelly Clarkson was filming her program in the same location where he had previously filmed his.

“Kelly Clarkson is amazing. Does anyone not adore Kelly Clarkson? Still, I thought, “This isn’t right!” blasphemy!” O’Brien chuckled. “‘They should have burned it to the ground!'”




More congrats to Jimmy Kimmel, Amy Schumer, and Conan O’Brien on the finale: “I’m grateful for everything.”

Following his departure from “The Tonight Show,” O’Brien hosted “Conan” on TBS for 11 years until the program’s cancellation in 2021. Since then, he has been the host of the podcast “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.” On April 18, he will launch a brand-new travel program on Max called “Conan O’Brien Must Go.

“Even though O’Brien is no longer in the late-night industry, he informed Fallon that he “loved” his position and called it the “best job in the world.” However, he also acknowledged how happy he was about the flexibility podcasting offers in terms of conducting longer interviews. As for the late-night, “I loved this,” he remarked. “I thought it was fantastic. However, at this point in my life, doing this is a pleasant thing. It’s a lot of fun.




In closing, O’Brien complimented Fallon and called his work on “The Tonight Show” “beautiful.”

“You took it upon yourself,” O’Brien remarked. “You’ve accomplished so much excellent work, and I’m quite happy for you. I’m really happy for you; you deserve everything wonderful.”
