Conan O’Brien issued a special online apology to Jimmy Kimmel after airing a segment that showed Sarah Palin shooting Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer–the same clip Team Kimmel played on their show earlier.
“The staff member responsible for the piece has been fired,” Conan quipped, “and we hear he’s been immediately rehired at Jimmy Kimmel. So it all worked out.”
In an effort to “clear the palate,” he went on to play a commercial for mistletoe that, he assured viewers, “I promise I don’t think anybody’s ever done anything like this, and probably for good reason.”
