The conversation focused on his abrupt departure from 'The Tonight Show.' Interviewer Steve Kroft offered his opinion that O'Brien had been "screwed" by Leno. At first, O'Brien joked about the situation, saying that he was laughing "because crying would be sad."

As the interview progressed, O'Brien opened up more about his feelings. First, he revealed that Leno had not reached out to him, and that he didn't expect to be "hearing from him." He also implied that he would have handled the situation differently. O'Brien said he wouldn't have taken back 'The Tonight Show' like Leno did. "But that's me," he added.

What do you think? Was Leno wrong in taking back the show? Did O'Brien get "screwed"?
