Daly, this week celebrating his fifth year as host of Last Call — the underrated show on after Conan at 1:30, has been publicly jockeying for consideration for Conan’s slot once the red-haired funnyman takes over for Jay Leno on the Tonight Show in 2009.

Fallon, coincidentally, was a guest on Conan last night, though nothing about the deal came up on the air.
