The battle between Jay Leno's and Conan O'Brien's rival versions of "The Tonight Show" isn't over just because O'Brien left NBC to launch a new program on TBS in November. Both "Tonight" versions compete in this Emmy contest (Conan submitted his version, NBC entered Jay's) where they'll clash with "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" — which has won the race seven years in a row. Another formidable rival: BET network's "The Mo'Nique Show," starring the "Precious" actress who recently swept the film awards.
