OMG David Letterman beat Conan O'Brien for the first time! "The Late Show" hasn't done better numbers than "The Tonight Show" in 8 months! Of course, Letterman had Julia Roberts as a guest while Conan only had Eddie Murphy. And NBC had the Stanley Cup finals, which ran late, possibly denting O'Brien's numbers even further. And everyone wanted to see more Sarah Palin-basing from Letterman. So it's still too early to panic. (Or, frankly, care.) But don't be shocked if Conan gets Hugh Grant to come on and apologize for kicking that paparazzo in the groin.
