In what has become a recurring segment on his late night show, Conan O’Brien poked fun at local newscasts using identical scripts, playing clips from several anchors reading the exact same line: “Don’t worry, be happy.”

“Some people think the top story tonight is President Obama’s State of the Union address or the upcoming Super Bowl. That’s what they think. But judging by local news, there’s an even bigger story that’s sweeping the nation,” O’Brien joked.
