The late-night television wars are alive and well.
Jay Leno took a swipe at Conan O'Brien in his monologue Tuesday, two days after O'Brien's interview with "60 Minutes" aired on CBS. O'Brien told the newsmagazine that, if he were in Leno's shoes, he would not have taken back the "Tonight" show perch the way Leno did from him.
Leno took a shot at O'Brien when he joked about a supposed Facebook page kept by Faisal Shahzad (FY'-sul shah-ZAHD'), the man accused of planting a car bomb in Times Square. The camera panned over the fake page to groups that Shahzad was a member of, and one of them was "Team Coco."
That's the name taken by a group of O'Brien fans angry at his treatment by NBC.
