He's been off the air for over a month, now Conan O'Brien is ready to start working again.
"Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me," the funnyman wrote. Conan's Twitter photo shows the super-scruffy former late-night host in a raggedy suit with a chimpanzee on his back. His bio reads, "I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account."
In January, NBC announced they reached a settlement with O'Brien. He reportedly earned $33 million for leaving "The Tonight Show." Rumor has it that FOX will be creating a slot for him, but nothing has been announced.
Jay Leno returns as host on March 1.
