Airdate: The Battle for Late Night
This two-hour special pulls back the curtain on the big egos, big drama and big business in the world of late night US television.
This month the Bio Channel features a two-hour special that pulls back the curtain on the big egos, big drama and big business in the world of late night US television.
It includes a look at “Lenogate”, the highly publicised dispute over NBC’s late night programme, between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien, that saw O’Brien leave the network.
Produced by New Wave Entertainment it features archival footage of choice moments of Conan, Leno and Letterman from the late-night wars of 1993, and new 2010 interviews with the New York Times reporter Bill Carter.
It will focus on everyone from Don Rickles and Johnny Carson to David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon.
Craig Kilborn also speaks candidly about both of his late-night adventures.
It airs Sunday November 21 at 8.30pm on Bio.
