Conan O'Brien on "Conan": "I'm doing exactly the show I want to do"

Last tonight Piers Morgan invited television host Conan O'Brien to take a turn in the guest's chair, as the two-time Emmy Award winner sat down for an exclusive face to face interview.

Having spent nearly two straight decades with his own show, on Monday evening the "Conan" host revealed what he deems to be his proudest accomplishment:

"This feels, to me, now, like a - a greater achievement, for me, anyway, because I'm doing exactly the show I want to do," he said, referring to his current program, as compared to a brief stint as host of 'The Tonight Show.' "I'm doing it with people that I love. And we get to do it our way and we're with these amazing partners at Turner."

On the backdrop of an admittedly awkward departure from NBC, O'Brien suggested that obstacles are a necessary part of any worthwhile endeavor:

"There should be a lot of challenges," he insisted. "In a good career there should be a lot of challenges and so I wouldn't, honestly not really change anything that happened. It's been fascinating, it brought me to where I am now."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the former "Saturday Night Live" and "The Simpson's" writer opened up about the winding path that has landed him on TBS.

    Please post the clip of Conan talking about his time at Harvard. The part where is said he felt as if he didn't belong. That would be good for kids to hear.
