Conan O'Brien

  • Conan O'Brien
After a 17-year apprenticeship, O'Brien landed the job every talk show host dreams of: filling Johnny Carson's shoes at the Tonight Show. Then he gave it up after six months, rather than compromise with NBC, which wanted to push him back half an hour to give a berth back to Jay Leno. Noble, certainly, but it meant winding up on a low-rated talk show on a cable network that gives him a far-from secure future.
