O'Brien thanks fans, NBC on final 'Tonight' show

Conan O'Brien said on his final "Tonight" show that walking away is the hardest thing he's ever had to do. He ended his tenure on the storied late-night show Friday, seven months after he started. He is set to be replaced by the man he initially took over for - Jay Leno.

Before ending his show, O'Brien thanked his fans, the viewers and even NBC. He worked at the network for two decades before leaving in lieu of accepting a demotion. Despite his sense of loss, O'Brien says the end should be a happy moment.

O'Brien says "every comedian dreams of hosting the 'Tonight' show and, for seven months, I got to. I did it my way, with people I love, and I do not regret a second." He says, "If our next gig is doing a show in a 7-Eleven parking lot, we'll find a way to make it fun."
