Conan Returns (on TBS)

As Conan O'Brien returns to television with the premiere of "Conan" on TBS, we take you back to his definitive interview with "60 Minutes." O'Brien sat down with us last spring, following his untimely departure from "The Tonight Show."

It's a good time to rewind Steve Kroft's "60 Minutes" profile of late-night comedian Conan O'Brien. On the eve of his TBS debut, hear O'Brien talk candidly about his acrimonious departure from NBC, his heartache over losing "The Tonight Show," and his future, which starts Monday, Nov. 8.

The wait is over for "Team Coco," but O'Brien's success is hardly a sure thing: he's heading straight into the wheelhouse of Comedy Central, airing directly opposite Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Who will YOU be watching? Comedy Central or Conan O'Brien?
