It was not quite the explosive festival of Jay Leno hatin’ we’d hoped to witness, but good enough…
Jay Leno famously stole a coveted late night time slot from Conan O’Brien’s The Tonight Show in a very public fiasco.
Surprisingly Letterman led the anti-Leno extravaganza, beginning with, “I think the longer we just sit here, the more uncomfortable it will make Jay,” followed by calling him “a bit of a brat.”
Which pretty much opened up the Pandora’s box. O’Brien chimed in whilst pretending to be professional:
“We didn’t have a lot to talk about in common. I don’t own many automobiles that were made before 1904, primarily of brass and leather.”
And brought the moo-moos home by praising his new network, TBS.
“I’m very lucky. TBS lets me do whatever I want. They don’t watch it; they don’t care,” the Conan host stated.
So there ye have it. Don’t mess with late night show hosts. Opinions?
