Kimmel trashes Jay Leno on Jay’s own crappy show
Jay Leno sucks. He is the worst talk show host ever. Worse than Tyra Banks, Jimmy Fallon and Carson Daly combined. It is obvious that he and NBC have both handled this late night situation terribly, but I’m not gonna get into that mess. Trashing Leno on the internet is turning into a shitting on a dead horse kind of thing. While he garnished major ratings and was often ahead of Letterman for much of his run, he has found no support on the web. This is because people who find him funny and watch his show are not the kind of people who understand how to use the internet. The fact that he continuously beat Letterman in ratings is a sad commentary on the general intelligence of Americans. It is why other countries hate us.
While Conan has handled this incident with class, Leno inexplicably invited Jimmy Kimmel, who is actually funny, onto his show for some 10 questions segment. Kimmel recently spent an entire episode of his own show dressed up as Jay Leno. Jay’s questions are high school newspaper-interview level stuff, obviously. Kimmel’s answers are witty and wonderfully scathing.
Letterman, at his best, slams Jay too.
