Conan O’Brien says he got a phone call from David Letterman over the holidays.
O’Brien said Wednesday that he and Letterman have “always been good. I said he didn’t owe me a phone call, but I appreciated it.”
However, O’Brien said about Jay Leno, who replaced him as “Tonight” show, “We all know the story,” even though his new TBS show ”Conan” began in November.
He added, “I’m very appreciative. There’s nothing like walking away from ‘The Tonight Show’ that makes you appreciative of being on the air and having a TV show. I think that feeling is coming through.”
