Merry Christmas from Talk Show News: it's Conan's yule log and Paul Shaffer as Cher!

Conan O'Brien and I would like to wish you a merry Christmas... and it'll be a very creepy Christmas if you spend too much time watching this:

And while Alec Baldwin was hilarious on last night's show, it was so very disappointing that we didn't get to see Paul Shaffer doing his impression of Cher singing "O Holy Night," because it just isn't Christmas without that bit. Turns out it was trimmed from the broadcast, but it is available on as a web exclusive:

And here is a YouTube clip featuring actual footage of the Sonny & Cher Christmas special! (If you want to hear Cher singing the carol, there's a recording here.)

    Cher hitting the notes: at 3:57.

    Paul Shaffer's bit always cracks me the hell up. Its a lot of preparation and explanation for such a short impression. But great nonetheless.

    Funny how they make such a big deal about the "hands in a muff" thing. LoL.

    Merry late christmas to you too and a happy new year!
