Conan O'Brien Assaults NBC in Nastiest Take Down Monologue Ever
With his forced entry wounds still stinging, Conan O'Brien bravely mounted Stage 1 of the Universal Studios backlot last night with enough ammunition to take down an entire farm of peacocks, including the very one that robbed him of his 11:35 p.m. time slot in a Subway-sponsored alleyway last week. The Tonight Show host got some revenge with a crippling monologue that shot down NBC and redefined "Must See TV," the very term the network coined in the early '90s and killed sometime around the end of Will & Grace.
And while Jay Leno traded a few of his own insults from his 10 p.m. perch ("I leave NBC primetime the same way I found it, a complete disaster."), his lacked the pain and resentment of a true victim, seen below.
