QUICK TAKES

Paula Abdul isn't feeling the love from late-night comedy fans.

Her exit from "American Idol" is monologue material -- and the TV comics don't even need writers. On NBC Wednesday night, Conan O'Brien mentioned Abdul's departure, and his "Tonight Show" audience cheered.

Taken aback, O'Brien responded: "That's funnier than any joke I got."

On CBS' "The Late Late Show," host Craig Ferguson said restoring Abdul to the judge's chair should be former President Bill Clinton's next mission after helping free two journalists in North Korea.
