Conan O'Brien Refutes NBC's Contention

Conan O'Brien refutes NBC's contention that The Tonight Show he briefly hosted was losing money and also says the six months he had the show were not long enough to declare it a failure with viewers.

Reminded by correspondent Steve Kroft that NBC Universal Chairman Jeff Zucker said that after six months, ratings indicated viewers did not want him on the show, O'Brien says, "In my opinion, I don't think that's fair or accurate. But he's entitled to his opinion. I think for anyone to say that the results were in after six months that doesn't ring true to me," he tells Kroft.

Also reminded that NBC said The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien was losing money, Conan refutes it. "I honestly don't see how that's possible. It's really not possible. It isn't possible."-Conan To 60 Minutes: "Not Possible" His 'Tonight Show' Lost Money

So, if you are one of the people who even bothers watching late night network TV, did you like O'Brien as host of the Tonight Show, or did you prefer Leno, you old fart?
