Late Night War: Kimmel Airs Ken Burns-Style Documentary About Leno/Conan Drama (VIDEO)

NBC created the Tonight Show in the 1860's, so it's only appropriate that Ken Burns would do a documentary called "The Late Night War."

Actually, Jimmy Kimmel's team did the documentary, but it's still a good way to understand the history of President Jeffrey Zucker, General Jebediah Jay Leno, and a young commander named Conan O'Brien.

An equally accurate account was animated earlier this week by Taiwan's NMA News.
