In the recent tradition of Craig Ferguson showing up on "Conan," Stephen Colbert singing "Friday" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and Ferguson trading gifts with the "Late Night" host, Wednesday night's "Letterman" had another appearance that could indicate a softening of the late night wars.
When Colbert started discussing the recent severe weather in the South (asking his viewers to donate to the Red Cross, of course), he soon found himself in need of a bathroom. Unfortunately, the shared Viacom (the company which owns CBS and Comedy Central) bathroom key is in Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theater.
So naturally, he interrupted Letterman's show looking for it. This took place on both shows, though only "Colbert Report" viewers saw that outgoing CBS anchor Katie Couric had occupied the john.
What do you think of this recent spate of late night hosts showing up on each others' shows? Do you think they're showing that they can get along after the Leno-O'Brien mess? Share your view below.
