Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien

Wonder what was the topic of conversation between David Letterman and guest Conan O'Brien on tonight's Late Show?

The two late-night talk-show hosts reunited on the program after 13 years, and as you might have assumed, Jay Leno came up quite a bit.

In between multiple Leno impressions, Conan shared that he's really OK after everything that went down with the Tonight Show shake-up.

"I feel terrific, I really do…I'm very lucky to get to go on television and to get to do my thing my way, and TBS lets me do whatever I want. They don't watch it, they don't care. Checks come in…and I have a great time. We took all of our people with us, so everybody is happy, so I'm thrilled. It worked out. I'm a lucky person."

Letterman didn't shy from admitting that the rivalry brought him a bit of happiness, which O'Brien responded to with, "If this is bringing you some measure of joy, then to hell with my career."

The Late Show host continued to explain saying that Leno was always the guy everyone wanted to be during their comedy-club days, but he was also "a bit of a brat," and that once this second Tonight Show war began, he thought, "Oh yes, this is the Jay I know."

Looks like these two share similar beliefs.
