Last Night on Late Night: Will Ferrell (Finally) Shaved Conan’s Beard

Last night, Will Ferrell, acting on what he believes to be a mandate from the American people celebrating outside the White House and in Times Square ("there is nothing going on in this country other than the fervor to shave that beard"), finally followed through on weeks of threats and took his razor to Conan O'Brien's face, thus restoring the late-night host at last to his NBC-era, clean-shaven look. Also, Jimmy Kimmel won the night as far as bin Laden death monologues, Brian Williams described bin Laden's lair in "Battabing," Pakistan, before David Letterman made an obligatory hairpiece joke to offset a long, non-comedic interview, and Mindy Kaling tried to convince Craig Ferguson that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills actually practice slavery.
