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.

Matthew Perry called O'Brien's statement (he wrote that he refused to participate in the "destruction" of the Late Show by having it air at 1:05 a.m.) "fantastic" on Twitter.

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.
