Jay Leno vs. Conan O'Brien: Stars Take Sides
Stars are taking sides in the late-night battle between Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno.
Alyssa Milano is on team Conan. "Dear Conan, Good. For. You. We love you & can't wait to see what comes next for you, she wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
Benjamin McKenzie told Extra he was "glad" Leno's 10 p.m. show "failed," because it bumped his cop drama, Southland -- which was canceled by NBC because it aired at the same time -- to TNT. "Now we can make the show we wanted to make -- on cable," he said.
Real Housewives of New York City's Bethenny Frankel wrote on Twitter, "It's unanimous.the public is on conan's side.this whole thing will help his ratings.my tweeps believe in standing up.that's why ur my peeps."
Jerry Seinfeld is on Leno's side. "I can't blame NBC for having to move things around," the comic said while promoting his new show, The Marriage Ref.
Director Kevin Smith added on Twitter, "I do feel bad for Conan, but Leno's 1 of the nicest people in this vicious business, & he got f**ked -- even though he had the best numbers."
The last prime-time episode of The Jay Leno Show airs Feb. 12.
