Sad Conan Preemptively Nostalgic

Heeeere’s Burbank!


Now that Jimmy Fallon has been anointed his Late Night successor, Conan O’Brien is getting nostalgic for 30 Rock. “There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t walk into Rockefeller Center and think, This is the temple for broadcasting,” he said at a Barrow Group benefit on May 19. “It’s an Art Deco palace to television, and I got to work there.” Next year he’ll move to Burbank to replace Jay Leno. It’ll be a change. “Studio 6A isn’t even a proper television studio,” he said. “It was designed as a radio studio. It’s much smaller than it looks on television, a weird, odd, unusual space. But there’s something magic about it.” Isn’t this all a bit depressing? “I’m Irish-Catholic,” he said. “I’m sad all the time.”
