Conan returns for '60 Minutes' segment
Conan O'Brien will be on TV this weekend with his first post-"Tonight Show" interview.
O'Brien talks with Steve Kroft on "60 Minutes," CBS said yesterday. O'Brien's exit deal with NBC barred him from television appearances until May 1; the "60 Minutes" piece will air the day after.
The interview was conducted last week in Los Angeles, according to a person with knowledge of it. The person, who lacked authority to discuss the matter publicly, spoke on condition of anonymity.
O'Brien, who left "Tonight" in January over a time-slot dispute with NBC, has agreed to host a late-night show on TBS later this year. He's now on a national comedy tour.
