Jay Leno Talks Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and His Future on '60 Minutes'

Last night, 60 Minutes aired the above Tonight Show exit interview with Jay Leno. Highlights include Leno jokingly considering a History Channel show, his wife Mavis getting really mad about that whole Conan thing, and this exchange with Steve Kroft:

You would've preferred to stay. Well it's always nice to keep working, sure it is. But am I extremely grateful? Yes. Do I understand the circumstances? Yes, of course.

This is the part I don't understand. I mean you're still #1. Well I think because you have talented people who will only wait so long before they get another opportunity, you don't want to lose that opportunity. That makes [...]

Sharp Teeth And A Big Heart: Trey Parker And Matt Stone On 60 Minutes

Trey Parker and Matt Stone's 60 Minutes interview is, in large part, an impressive look back at how often the South Park guys have just killed it, beginning with Cannibal! The Musical in 1993 and ending (so far) with this year's Book of Mormon.

Daily Show Writer Elliott Kalan and Executive Producer Rory Albanese Fight For Andy Rooney's 60 Minutes Job

You've probably heard that earlier today, 60 Minutes' cranky grandpa Andy Rooney announced his retirement. That left his musky armchair open for someone to come and complain in, and two men have stepped up to the plate: Daily Show writer Elliott Kalan and Daily Show executive producer Rory Albanese.

First, Kalan set up a petition asking for a shot at the job, saying that while he may be young, he is also extremely curmudgeony. Then, Rory Albanese, Elliott's boss (awkward!) set up a competing petition, saying "Yes, Elliott knows about comic books and old movies, but Rory Albanese can rant about any topic, regardless of [...]
