CONAN O’BRIEN – has a big interview on ’60 Minutes’ this weekend, and one surprise is that he doesn’t feel NBC screwed him over. He says things just didn’t work out. Another surprise is when Steve Kroft shows pictures of Conan buying yellow cake uranium. Let’s see that drunk mick weasel his way out of this one. (full quotes)

BATMAN 3 – doesn’t have a name or a script or a cast, but it reportedly has a release date: July 20th, 2012. This seems like bullshit. There’s no way in hell the sequel to the 5th biggest movie of all time would be released at the end of July. Then again, these Hollywood exec’s seem to really know what they’re doing, so who am I to judge. (hollywood reporter)

DAISY DUKE 1 – was Catherine Bach, and today her husband was found dead of an apparent suicide. Or maybe this is one of Boss Hoggs tricks, like that time he rigged the Chili Cook Off. (radar)

DAISY DUKE 2 – was Jessica Simpson, and she was on ‘Ellen’ Wednesday in a top that flaunted the only positive to come from a girl piling on weight. They chatted for a minute and then Ellen brought out some picnic basket thing to give Jessica some gifts, but also so Ellen could hide her erection.


Conan O’Brien on ’60 Minutes’:

Conan on how he views his unceremonious departure from NBC: “The biggest thing people come up and say to me in gas stations and restaurants, I have so many people say this to me. ‘Hey partner, you got screwed.’ I don’t – and I always tell them, ‘No, I didn’t. I didn’t get screwed. I’m – I’m fine. It just – it didn’t work out.’ But I don’t want people thinking, you know, that I got screwed. Because it just didn’t work out.”

Conan on regrets: “I don’t regret anything. I don’t regret one decision I made in that week and a half period. I wish it had ended differently. But, I’m fine. I do believe, and this might be my Catholic upbringing or Irish magical thinking, but I think things happen for a reason. I really do. And I think that this all happened for a reason.”

Conan on being happy: “No, I have not resolved all my issues. I am mostly very happy. I love this tour, it’s the most thrilling thing I’ve done in my career. And so I’m in a really great place in a lot of ways. But I’d be lying if I said I don’t – have my moments of everything, you know, anger, disappointment – frustration and just confusion.”
