(Newser) – Jay Leno lobbed a softball when he defended his move to primetime by telling Keith Olbermann, “10:30 is like 11:30 used to be.” And archrival David Letterman knocked it out of the park last night, reports Gawker, reminding viewers in his opening monologue that his show is “still at 11:35.” The competition between the hosts dates back 15 years to Leno snatching the Tonight Show out from under Letterman.

A fake promo later in Letterman's show announced, “In a move to bolster our own programming schedule, CBS is pleased to announce we’re giving David Letterman an earlier time slot as well. So tune in to the all-new Late Show at 4 am, following the Slanket infomercial!"
