SNL Tackles NBC's Late-Night Squabble: Jay and Conan Both "A Colossal Failure"

Saturday Night Live tackled NBC's late-night squabble, using its usual cold opening to present a mock Larry King Live with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien as guests to discuss how it was a "colossal failure" all around.

"Conan is out. Jay is in. And no one is talking about the greatest talk show of all time, Mr. Joey Bishop," Fred Armisen's King said.

Zingers abounded with King saying the whole thing stemmed from "a colossal failure" by Leno (played by Darrell Hammond) and "a colossal failure" by O'Brien (played by Bill Hader) in their respective time slots. In between, Leno joshed, and O'Brien sulked.

King - depicted as clueless, Benefiber-loving, and a century-old while wearing Atom Ant/Lew Wasserman glasses - offered a solution: "time machine."

David Letterman (Jason Sudeikis) didn't go unscathed, either. He just threw pencils at the camera and laughed like a hyena.
