    Howard was ranting this morning about Jay Leno, and why he doesn't stand up for NBC.

    He also wondered why Leno doesn't move his show to Fox or ABC.

    And he wondered why Letterman isn't also taking a pay cut.


    Well, Howard, if you don't know, Letterman owns his show. NBC owns Leno's show.

    It's too completely different situations.

    And moving Leno's show to ABC?

    Well, they didn't want him 2 years ago when the Conan thing happened.

    And they don't want him now when they have a younger-skewing Jimmy Kimmel, who fits in more closely with ABC's female-oriented programming while attracting male eyeballs.

    Fox? Well, Fox affiliates aren't going to dump lucrative Seinfeld reruns for an aging Leno.


    And that's the point.


    Leno is 62. He's not going to start over. Why can't Howard realize this?

    Starting over at a new place is really, really, really hard, as Conan will tell you.

    The quality suffers. And nothing is ever the same.

    Howard invented Steve Allen, Jack Parr, and Joey Bishop.

    Another thing: Gary said that Letterman took a pay cut in 2009, and didn't publicize it.

    But it was all over the news at the time.

    Another another thing:

    Howard always said Leno should've jumped to another network when NBC offered Conan his job in 2004.

    Well, if Leno did that he would've most certainly failed wherever he went.

    As I said, he'd have to start over.

    Instead, Leno stuck it out and he's doing what he wants to do -- host The Tonight Show.

    If he took Howard's advice, he wouldn't be hosting The Tonight Show.

    He'd probably be depressed at home.

    dude, how long have you been listening to the show?
    if jay did move his show to another network, then howard would have said he should have stayed.
    you really don't understand how this works

    I bet stern literally wouldn't sacrifice a single cent to save a life unless there was something in it for him.

    I love how taking a pay cut from 35 million a year to 25 million a year for a 5 hour a week work schedule makes these guys martyrs.

    You do realise you are talking about the mind of a 14 year old schoolgirl, nothing logical is ever going to come out of his mouth. His whole persona is driven by petty jealousies.

    Howard has failed at EVERY project he has ever done except for his radio show and his book that was written just like is radio show.

    He'll say anything to paint Jay in a negative light. He's consumed with him.

    Howard sounds like even a bigger idiot than usual when he claims he doesn't understand what happened with Jay. All the details are clearly spelled out and everyone else in the world understands just fine. The only puzzling thing would be why Howard didn't take his own advice and leave Sirius after they disrespected him and refused to pay his bonus, except that we all know it's because no one else wanted him.
