"Do you want anything?" asks Conan O'Brien, as he opens the fridge in his cluttered office. "Canned tuna? Bottled ketchup?" Although his cupboard is pathetically bare, NBC's Late Night host has plenty on his plate. The show recently earned its ninth Emmy nomination. And on Sunday at 9:30 pm/ET, the 40-year-old O'Brien celebrates his 10th anniversary with a live, 90-minute prime-time special. It's rumored that Jim Carrey, Bill Clinton and even the Masturbating Bear will show up. But, says O'Brien, "It's prime time, so we may have to put [the bear] on a depressant to keep him from getting overly excited."
TV Guide Online: What historical event would you compare your first year on air to?
O'Brien: Gallipoli. Just lots of troops running over the trenches and getting mowed down, with huge British losses. The first year was historically important, but not pretty.
