Late Night Highlights: Betty White Showers, Hugh Jackman Croons Mandarin, and ConanGate Revisited

Some people use their vacation days to catch up on the DVR, finally test out that freebie foot massager or pick up the last of the dry cleaning. Jimmy Kimmel uses his vacation days to fly across the country and drum up some anti-Leno sentiment on the Late Show with David Letterman. At least that's what he tried to do last night, when the ABC host recalled every high and low of ConanGate: Kimmel's episode-long impersonation of Jay Leno, that devastating 10@10 sucker punch and Leno's self-pitying interview on Oprah. Surprisingly though, Letterman refused to engage in the very bashing he participated just two months ago, calling the Late Shift Deux a "just a whole lot of fun" -- like at the old Comedy Store! That clip, as well as the other highlights you missed last night while dreaming of an RJ Berger solution to your hellish high school year, after the jump.

    Betty White: "Where'd you get that?" (re: an old B&W clip of her singing)
    Jay: "We got it from an Egyptian tomb."
    Way to go, Jay. Keepin' things classy! Every 88 year-old lady loves to hear she's not 30 anymore.

    Yeah, and the "What year did you get your first Emmy? 1952? Oh, I was two years old!" was another kind, klassy moment. Cuz we care how old the host is, compared with Betty White.
