CATCH THAT KID
Network:
Disney
Time: 7:30 – 9:30PM

THE TONIGHT SHOW
Network: NBC
Time: 11:30PM – 12:30AM
 
Reasons to watch: A feud began in late September when Conan made a joke at the expense of Newark. After O’Brien quipped "The Mayor of Newark New Jersey wants to set up a citywide program to improve Newark residents’ health. The health-care program would consist of a bus ticket out of Newark," That joke lead to a long drawn-out feud between the two that will end tonight when Booker guests on the show.

"I admire and respect Mayor Booker, and I look forward to our summit on "The Tonight Show" this Friday," stated host Conan O’Brien. "My apologies for bumping Brad Pitt, J.D. Salinger and a reunited Led Zeppelin, we’ll have them back real soon."
