Conan O'Brien First Post Interview in 60 Minutes

Conan O'Brien First Post Interview on 60 MinutesIn Conan O'Brien's first post interview with Steve Kroft of "60 Minutes" since leaving the "Tonight Show", he said that if he was in the position of Jay Leno, he wouldn't have taken back the show less than a year after publicly handing it off to a new host, which is him.

"That's me, you know, Everyone's got their own way ... of doing things." O'Brien Sunday broadcast interview, excerpts of which were released Thursday by CBS. During his sold-out concert tour, O'Brien mentioned the reason why he decided to leave NBC which he said, "this relationship is going to be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways."

Conan's Tonight Show got poor tv ratings that enabled long time rival CBS' David Letterman show to surge ahead to first place while Leno's new show and time slot were threatened to be pulled since he wasn't able to replicate his Tonight Show tv ratings.

NBC tried to offer TV Shows host Leno a half-hour show at 11:35 p.m. and letting O'Brien keep the "Tonight" show name and begin a half hour later. O'Brien said no, since it will lead Jimmy Falon's "Late Night Show" time slot to be pushed further, so he denied this request by NBC, resulting for him to leave the network instead. Leno, who never wanted to leave "Tonight" in the first place, slipped back into his old home. "I wouldn't have done that, I'm not sure these people even really want me here," O'Brien said.

He didn't seem that his relationship with NBC still has a future. So he decided to sign with TBS to launch a new talk show in November. During the few weeks between his public decision and actual exit, O'Brien became something of a folk hero. An Internet "Team Coco" tribe rose up to support him, and O'Brien's ratings soared for shows with pointed jabs about his bosses.

NBC forbade O'Brien to give interviews that could be printed or telecast before May 1 on his bouyout. The "60 Minutes" telecast will be aired May 2. The interview excerpts may be a technical violation of that NBC buy out deal, although they are not expected to pursue. NBC and a Leno spokesman had no comment about O'Brien's statements.

Jamarcus Russell could be Released by Raiders Soon

Jamarcus Russell could be Released by Raiders SoonJaMarcus Russell, a former No. 1 overall pick in the NFL during 2007, might be on the verge of getting cut from the Oakland Raiders Roster soon. Just 12 hours earlier, Espn anounced the Latest Sports News report that Russell was set to be cut. Eventually making the Raiders to take a financial risk that is hard to swallow.

But the Raiders having a $39 million investment on him makes it uneasy for them to cut the quarterback just yet. Since the beginning of the trade for Washington Redskins' QB Jason Campbell on Saturday, Russell became the expensive man out for the Raiders. Russell is still owed $6.45 million by Oakland if he stays with the team roster this season.

Al Davis , Oakland's Managing General Partner, could be working to get Russell to take a pay cut before trainingcamp. If Jamarcus, also known as J-Rock, would agree and be at training camp, people can see firsthand if he really weighs 300 pounds, as has been reported.

Last season, after being fined, appearing overweight at training camp, he turned in the worst season by an NFL quarterback in 11 seasons. Teammates have openly questioned his work ethic. Russell only completed 48.8 percent of his passes, with three touchdowns, 11 interceptions and a 50.0 passer rating. He still has $3 million guaranteed this year to go along with a previous $36.1 million paid. He is 7-18 in 25 starts in the NFL.

Although Tom Cable, Raiders head coach, said this weekend that he's not ready to part off with the former No. 1 overall pick. He still consider for Russell to compete for the starting QB job along with Jason Campbell, Bruce Gradkowski, Kyle Boller and Charlie Frye, Cable said.

"What it comes down to is that we've got five quarterbacks now and we're going to have a great competition. There will be some decisions to be made here in the next month or so."

One of those decisions could be whether Russell and his hefty contract remains on the roster. If Russell were to get hurt during a Raiders practice in the offseason or preseason, his full salary would be guaranteed. But for now, Cable is maintaining that the team won't give up on the QB who's won just seven games in his three-year career.

It would be most difficult for Davis to cut Russell knowing that he backed the strong-armed quarterback in a public feud against coach Lane Kiffin, resulting for firing the head coach then, back in 2008. Davis had drafted Russell despite his coach's protests.

"He is a great player. Get over it and coach this team on the field," Davis read from a letter he sent Kiffin before the firing.

Last year, Davis shown some signs that he lost his patience and allowed coach Tom Cable to bench Russell midway through the season. The Raiders had no comment, and neither did Ethan Lock, Russell's agent.
