The Conan O'Brien/ Jon Stewart/ Stephen Colbert feud

The best feud in late night entertainment. What's great is thinking so much of it is improv. As the NY Times describes,

after weeks of sniping at one another from their various desks, they managed to pull off a comedy coup on Monday, and not a moment too soon, as their shows have lost viewers during the strike, according to Nielsen Media Research. Mr. O’Brien, joined by Mr. Colbert, first appeared Monday on Mr. Stewart’s show; Mr. Stewart and Mr. O’Brien then joined Mr. Colbert on his show immediately after; and then they did their best “Three Stooges” (and Sharks and Jets) act on Mr. O’Brien’s show. The three programs are recorded in Midtown Manhattan.
