Conan O'Brien Mocks 'X Factor,' 'American Idol,' Simon Cowell (Video)
Conan O'Brien couldn't resist poking fun at Simon Cowell and The X Factor on his TBS late show Thursday night.
"Let's talk about something everyone wants to discuss: and that's Simon Cowell's The X Factor," he joked. "C'mon , man. X Factor premiered last night. What, boo? It's not my show. You can't walk five feet on earth… you could go to the bottom of the sea and there's a billboard for X Factor."
"A lot of people aren't sure what the difference is between The X Factor and American Idol. There's some confusion, so Fox is running through brand new promos," he added before launching into a parody ad. Watch below.
