Now, ABC is jumping all over the Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien mess for an upcoming episode.

Sources have confirmed to Michael Ausiello that Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron will appear on a spring installment of the series as Bobby Mann, a late-night talk show host who gets killed by... the man that wants his job.

This rival comedian will beĀ  played by Bill Bellamy.
