    Jimmy said today that one reason he does not like Jay Leno was that he 'took' the Tonight Show position from David Letterman.

    He is full of shit.

    Letterman did not campaign for the position and showed no outward interest to NBC execs. In fact, he was hostile to NBC execs that had to deal with him, moody and in his own world.

    He 'assumed' he was the choice....not very smart.
    • Leno was the permanent guest host on TTS and had high ratings for several years.
    • Leno visited NBC stations when on the road to build support with the affiliates.
    • Letterman wanted the "Carson" contract, ownership of TTS and control over 12:30.
    • Leno took a salary and never asked for ownership of TTS or control over 12:30.
    • NBC Exec. Warren Littlefield said choosing Jay over David was a billion dollar decision.

    I have no problem with Kimmel's position regarding Leno flirting with ABC for 11:30 and pretending to be pals with Kimmel only to be quickly forgotten when Jay stayed at NBC.

    Agreed, RobotsVsMonsters.

    Leno was sneaky as fuck trying to get the Tonight Show the first time from Letterman, he was sneaky as fuck trying to get the Tonight Show again from Conan too.

    This was Jimmy's greatest moment when he destroyed Leno on his own show (forward to 24 seconds in):

    This is so fucking bullshit..the only reason Jimmy disses Leno is that its another way for Jimmy to stick his tongue up Howard' ass..I guarantee if Howard apologized to Leno tomorrow, fagboy Jimmy would sing a different tune...

    I bet if Leno wasn't forced out and hand his crown down to jimmy, he and leno would be best buds. Hasn't Leno beaten kimmel in the ratings night after night ?

    Also fuck conan, he had his shot, it sucked, move on...

    The hero worship of Letterman has never made sense to me. The 'genius' shit he did in the 80s never impressed me, and the way he sucks his own dick is contemptible.

    He bullies the world and acts as if he's above reproach and repeatedly failed to defeat his competition all the while insisting he was just 'too smart' to play to 'the masses.'

    Bitter old asshole. Who cares if he didn't get the Tonight Show.

    Ha, as if Leno cares. He stomped the others in ratings and rode off into the sunset when HE wanted too. And most likely could give a fuck about what the guy from "Win Ben Steins Money" could think.

    Letterman was, at his best, the greatest late night host ever, hands down. His peer group would readily attest to that. In the later years, after the heart surgery and the kid? Maybe not. Leno was the better comedian, but he was a politician, a self-serving back-slapper, and when he called it quits, nobody gave a rat's ass. He was behind the Late Night of the Long Knives.

    As for Jimmy hating Leno because of what happened at NBC thirty years ago, he should let it go. Letterman himself could not care less anymore, the guy just wants to win Daytona or Indy or some shit.

    jfc, you are some kind of moron....nbc execs fucked that up so bad...leno was on top of the ratings but the nbc execs were terrified they were gonna lose ginger, so they gave the ginger the tonight show 5yrs down the road, they just kicked the can, hoping leno would tank in that time frame...he didn't, held the top spot, nbc execs were scared to death at what to do when it was the five yr mark so they gave leno that early show which killed gingerboy....and leno during those 5yrs was very gracious to nbc but it was not his idea to leave, it was a force out by ginger boy & the execs who realized they had made a bad gamble when that 5yrs was up. it was such a fuckup on their part, but leno had nothing to do with it....

    how about your boss tells you they are replacing you in 5yrs even tho you are the top producer and lets see if you are half as classy during that time frame as leno was...jfc, morons kill me....what he did to conan:rolleyes:, stfu dumbass.

    Kimmel also said that he almost did not like Leno since Howard did not like him....pretty fucking stupid. Almost as stupid as Leno not letting Joan Rivers on the show "out of respect for Johnny Carson" ????? WTF

    Carolla is friends with Jay and Howard brought that up since Kimmel and Carolla are BFF.

    If it's not your feud, stay out of it. Props to Carolla.

    Never made me laugh. Conan and Smigel had much bigger laughs, for me, than anything Dave ever did.

    Late night hosts are cheeseballs who kiss celebrity ass and suck their own dicks. PAGING HOWIG.

    If Jimmy would only ask Howie similar questions about 2-day work weeks, his "notebook of ideas," becoming Imus complete with his own Deidre and ranch, overtly PC Hollywood asslicking, etc.

    Then I'd probably watch the show.
