ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel mocked the competition on Wednesday with a song that featured a Jeff Zucker look-a-like singing about failed NBC pilots.
Zucker was ousted as president and chief executive of NBC Universal Sept. 24 in advance of the company's merger with Comcast. He will be replaced by Comcast COO Steve Burke once the merger is complete. Zucker expanded NBC's presence online and on cable, but his tenure was marred by a string of unsuccessful projects in the company's entertainment division and the Conan/Leno late night debacle.
Kimmel showed a musical video during his show that made fun of Zucker's problems in primetime.
