Conan O'Brien Fires Back at NBC
Amid reports that Conan O'Brien and NBC could be on the verge of parting ways, Conan and Jay Leno alike cracked jokes about the Peacock network in their monologues Friday night -- with Conan even depicting himself in a satirical shootout against the network!
Jay mentioned the Winter Olympics are kicking off next month in Vancouver, “and if you can't wait ‘till next month, stay on this channel between ten o'clock and midnight, and you'll see NBC's coverage of two hosts skating on thin ice.”
Meanwhile, Conan introduced himself in his “Tonight Show” monologue as the “future answer to a $200 ‘Jeopardy' question.” “Welcome to tonight's show,” he continued. “By the time you see this, I'll be halfway to Rio in a stolen NBC traffic copter.”
He added: “In the press this week, NBC has been calling me every name in the book. In fact, they think I'm such an idiot they now want me to run the network.”
Conan then joked that his relationship with the network had grown so tense that simply arriving at work in the morning was "uncomfortable" for him. He cut to a satirical sketch that depicted him and sidekick Andy Richter dodging bullets and returning gunfire at unseen shooters outside their office building.
