“60 Minutes” (7 p.m., CBS). Steve Croft holds the first interview with Conan O’Brien since his ouster from NBC. Conan’s buyout agreement prevents him from dishing too much dirt, but based on the excerpts, he still has some interesting thoughts on the whole late-night drama.

“Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking” (9 p.m., Discovery). The story of everything, from the Big Bang to the creation of stars to black holes to the theoretical end of the universe. Trippy stuff.
“The Story of America” (9 p.m., History). Pioneers head West, gold is discovered in California, slavery tears apart the country and Lincoln is elected president. Pretty uneventful period.
