Conan O'Brien couldn't resist the opportunity to make fun of his archrival Jay Leno one final time. While fellow late-night host Jimmy Kimmel put his " issues aside " and tweeted a congratulatory message the outgoing Tonight Show host on Thursday, O'Brien joked about Leno's departure on TBS' Conan . The famous redhead, who was forced out of his Tonight Show job to make room for Leno in 2010, said, "The Olympics start airing tonight on NBC. It's very cool. That's right, NBC has the Olympics. It's a big deal. NBC will finally get to show somebody who is OK with passing the torch."
