Conan stops by old 'Late Night' stomping grounds

It was almost like old times when Conan O'Brien swung by the set of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" last night, revisiting the show he'd once hosted.

It was played like as a surprise, with Fallon rambling on about the weather when O'Brien appeared from behind a curtain. Once the audience's cheering calmed down and they halted their standing O for O'Brien, he explained that he wanted to come by and see his old studio while he was in NYC.

"That's right, you were here for 16 years," Fallon said, joking, "And then what happened?"

"Don't you worry about that, you're a young guy." O'Brien quipped. "It all worked out fine." As you'll remember, after O'Brien moved on from "Late Night" to host "The Tonight Show," he found himself bounced from that gig and replaced by Jay Leno.

But, he didn't come by just to make jokes about that horrible NBC fiasco. "I came by for a reason," O'Brien explained. "I left something here, something important to me, and I haven't had it in a while. I thought since I'm here at my old studio I'd get it back, I think I'm going to need it again."

With that the 48-year-old TBS host pulled Triumph the Insult Comic Dog from behind a chair cushion - apparently the foul-mouthed pooch had been there the entire time.

TBS, owned by the parent company of CNN, airs O'Brien's "Conan" weekdays at 11 p.m. ET.

    Modern dry cleaning uses non-water-based solvents to remove soil and stains from clothes. The potential for using petroleum-based solvents such as gasoline and kerosene was discovered in the mid-19th century by French dye-works owner Jean Baptiste Jolly, who noticed that his tablecloth became cleaner after his maid spilled kerosene on it.:`
