COMICS TAKE TO THE AIR TO SKEWER NBC

Welcome back to live continuing coverage of The Late Shaft going on at NBC. Actually, not much has changed since Conan O'Brien's angry letter was released to the press the other day.

In the meantime, late-night has become must-see-TV with all the hosts taking to the air to trash NBC -- not the least of all Conan himself. The clips are over at Gawker. Pretty funny stuff -- Conan skewering NBC and saying he would be available to work children's parties, Deon Cole going out on stage and likening NBC to pimps and calling the late night hosts "hos", Jimmy Kimmel dressing up as Leno and impersonating him on the air, Craig Ferguson calling NBC management "lying rat bastards" -- it's great. This is amazing freaking TV. 

And you have to admit -- this mess over at NBC has kept Tiger Woods out of the news, hasn't it? Enjoy.
