One of Conan's writers, Deon Cole, made a pretty apt analogy on last night's "Tonight Show," stating that Conan is a "ho" and NBC's his "pimp." Cole elaborated, comparing the entire NBC late night roster to a crew of prostitutes, with Conan being the pretty one. When the "Tonight Show" host questioned it, Cole brought it home:
"Do you work at night? Is your job making people happy before they go to sleep? ... Has Charlie Sheen ever been on your couch? .. And do you give a percentage of your earnings to someone who sponsors you, and they don't do no work and they tell you what to do?"
