ABC’s ‘Castle’ to Spoof NBC’s Late Night Debacle (the only question: Is it about Letterman/Leno years ago or Conan/Leno now…or both?)

Mar 8, 2010  •  Post A Comment

ABC’s "Castle" is prepping a murder-mystery send-up of the NBC late night saga, Michael Ausiello over at EW.com reports. 

In the episode entitled "The Late Shaft," airing April 12,  "Dancing with the Stars" Tom Bergeron plays Bobby Mann, a late-night talk show host who is killed. And all eyes are on a rival talk show host, played by Bill Bellamy, who has wanted Mann’s spot. 

Sounds like this is just as much referencing the old Letterman./Leno war as the Conan/Leno one. In fact, the book and HBO movie about the Letterman/Leno saga was called "The Late Shift."

Fred Willard and French Stewart are also set to guest star in the episode.

  1. Just saw the episode, the best part was when Bellamy was remodeling the set the coffee mug he threw away was the exact one Conan has.
