Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien take on Deflategate

Friday January 23rd, 2015


The New England Patriots football deflation hubbub seems to be the talk of the nation, which means it was inevitable that it was put in the cross hairs of late night television hosts, and on Thursday night Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien both spent some time on "Deflategate."

O'Brien focuses on some Patriots cheating scandals of the past, like when they suited up a grizzly bear as a defensive lineman, or their "illegal use of a helicopter."

Sesame Street's word of the day is 'Inflate'

Kimmel talks about the team in his monologue, pointing out the ludicrous amount of coverage it has received, and mocking the believability of coach Bill Belichick. He also spoke about the scandal with guest Al Michaels.
