16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars
Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

Conan O'Brien Talks Jay Leno With David Letterman

May 18th, 2012 11:07am EDT
It was obvious that the topic of Jay Leno would come up when Conan O'Brien stopped by David Letterman's late night show - since Leno had a part in pushing them both off of NBC.

Leno famously received Johnny Carson's time slot when the legend retired, causing Letterman to leave for CBS. A few years ago, Leno stepped down and let Conan take his show - only for Leno to un-retire and take it back. An angry Conan went on a national tour before being signed to TBS.

However, when the topic was brought up, Conan said, "I feel terrific, I really do... I'm very lucky to get to go on television and ...

Both stars will earn $700,000-per-episode for Two And A Half Men and House, respectively, when the two high-rated shows return to TV next month, but Kutcher also reportedly has a deal in place, where he'll profit further if his sitcom is a hit.
