Who knew that Al Roker could be so ‘holier than thou’? The Today Show weather anchor was being interviewed on a radio show when host Pete Dominick asked Al about his relationship with Conan O’Brien, whom he used to be very close with. In fact, Al used to appear frequently on Conan’s late night show on NBC, but clearly from the sounds of this interview, the two have had a falling out.
Al slammed Conan’s new gig on TBS in the interview saying, “Listen, when he gets back on television, I think he’s going to have a great career. When he’s on real TV, it will be great. He’s on this web thing…”
When Pete noted that Conan was on TBS, Al made a joke that TBS sounds more like ‘IBS’ and watching his show was kind of like the same thing as IBS.
The only thing that we could think of that may have sparked this falling out was that Conan relentlessly poked fun at Al’s embarrassing White House incident when he admitted to soiling his pants. At any rate, it doesn’t sound like these two are on the best of terms right now.
