Conan on Letterman
Conan O'Brien will visit "The Late Show With David Letterman" next week for the first time in 13 years. The now late-night host replaced Letterman in 1993 after Letterman left to do his own show. You can expect plenty of talk about Jay Leno, neither are huge fans. Both lost the "Tonight Show" to Leno. O'Brien was named Leno's successor in 2010 only to have the show taken back months later. O'Brien's appearance on Letterman will air May 17th.

One World Trade Center in New York was designed to be the tallest building in the country but now that distinction is in doubt.

The change will save about $20 million but will cost the building bragging rights as the tallest in the country because antennas do not count towards total height.
