Wednesday's Late-Night Wars: Team Conan vs. Team Jay, Revisited!

by at . Comments

Like our Tila Tequila Twitter Tracker, we may soon need to make a rundown of late-night jabs and one-liners into a daily segment.

In the wake of the NBC programming debacle, David Letterman and company continue to chime in on Jay Leno's eventual takeover of the 11:35 p.m. time slot.

It's a mess, and we feel badly for Conan O'Brien, but it's also made for some great material. A sampling of last night's jokes are below...

Jay Leno: "Conan O'Brien, understandable, is very upset. He had a statement in the paper yesterday. Conan said NBC only gave him seven months to make his show work. When I heard that -- seven months! How'd he get that deal? We only got four."

Conan O'Brien and Ricky Gervais

Conan: "Hosting The Tonight Show has been the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for me - and I just want to say to the kids out there watching: You can do anything you want in life. Unless Jay Leno wants to do it too."

"According to a new TV Guide poll, 83 percent of voters want me to stay at 11:35. When he heard this poll number, President Obama asked, 'How can I get NBC to screw me over?'"

Letterman: "Last night on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel did the entire show as Jay Leno. Jimmy Kimmel was so convincing as Leno, today NBC canceled him."

"Isn't it lousy cold outside today? You know, they say, from the weather bureau, they say it's caused by an arctic chill between Jay and Conan."

Craig Ferguson: "For those of you who don't remember Tiger Woods, he's the guy we used to make fun of in the olden times before late-night TV went nuts and we all started talking about each other all the time."

Whose team are you on, readers?
