Last night, the monologues of both Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien took sad and unfortunate turns as both comics turned their guns on each other, rather than at NBC. At 10pm, Jay Leno fired at Conan with the joke, "Nobody knows what is going on. Conan O'Brien, understandable, is very upset. He had a statement in the paper yesterday. Conan said that NBC has only gave him seven months to make his show work. When I heard that....seven months?! How did he get that deal? We only got four! Who's his agent?"
During his 11:35 TONIGHT SHOW, Conan O'Brien shot back at Leno with, "Hosting THE TONIGHT SHOW has been the fulfillment of a lifetime 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!"
Sadly, these men who had so much respect for each other, are now becoming embittered. Much more of this and the fun will be gone.
