(Newser) – Conan O'Brien will break his media silence with an interview on 60 Minutes this Sunday—which is exactly one day after the earliest day he is legally allowed to give an interview. But don't expect too much in the way of fireworks, the Hollywood Reporter warns: Conan still isn't allowed to badmouth NBC, unless he wants to give back the tens of millions the network paid him to go away. Another contract quirk: CBS isn't even allowed to air interview footage to promote it.
