Discovery Channel was well-represented in late night TV last night.

Deadliest Catch‘s Sig Hansen appeared on Conan, where he talked about fans, medical care at sea, and Twitter. (You can follow his tweets here.) Take a look:

Meanwhile, Storm Chasers‘ Reed Timmer was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, discussing how he got interested in weather and why this has been such a dramatic year for tornadoes.

If you want to learn more about the 2011 tornado season, Discovery Channel will air a special called Behind the Killer Tornadoes of 2011 this Sunday, May 22, at 9pm ET/PT. It will present never-before-seen footage from the Storm Chasers, recount their harrowing stories and put into both scientific and human context the overwhelming tragedy these storms caused.
