(Newser) – With NBC's late-night stars smacking each other around all week, Saturday Night Live could hardly wait to get its own licks in on Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien—one of its own alums. But, as David Itzkoff notes in the New York Times, given SNL's ties to NBC's late night, the tone was more "conciliatory" than anything. Larry King (Fred Armisen) appears to suffer more than anyone in the sketch, which features Leno (Darrell Hammond) as unable to exit monologue mode and O'Brien (Bill Hader) as utterly devoid of humor. A cackling David Letterman (Jason Sudeikis) tosses a few pencils.
