Tracy Morgan was a guest on Conan O'Brien's TBS show on Thursday, but fortunately his alter ego Chico Devine was not.

"I had to leave Chico alone because I've got a daughter," he revealed. "Chico Devine got me thrown out of Prince's house! Prince is a freak, but I'm a big old freak."

Even telling the singer that his father loved "When Doves Cry" didn't stop the 30 Rock star from getting kicked out, he said.

Later in the show, actress Judy Greer revealed how people have trouble nailing down why they recognize her. "I call it fan-profiling," said the comedian, who's written a whole book on the topic titled, I Don't Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.

"It becomes my problem to figure out what they know me from," she said, explaining how recently "I guessed Two and a Half Men for Bill, the customs man, but it turns out Bill doesn't watch TV or movies," though he was determined to figure it out before he gave her passport back, revealed the actress, who has also appeared in 27 Dresses, Arrested Development and The Wedding Planner

Over on CBS, Kevin Bacon boasted to Craig Ferguson about his cooking skills -- and blasted those of his mother's, recalling smelly fish, chicken livers and boiled sprouts. As a kid, when his mom said she had to work late and he'd be getting a TV dinner, "I was so thrilled!" gushed Bacon, doing an excited wiggle.

Jimmy Kimmel devoted his show on Thursday to ABC's Scandal, with a special episode titled Jimmy Kimmel Live: Behind the Scandalabra. The executive producer behind Scandal and Grey's Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes, appeared on the show, where she faced burning questions.
