Jimmy Kimmel Smack Talk on ‘Jay Leno Show’

Back on Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel spent part of his show dressed up as Jay Leno, mocking The Jay Leno Show host thoroughly over the recent controversy regarding his show’s move back to late night. On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel went a step further by appearing on The Jay Leno Show via satellite to slam Leno face to face.

Jimmy Kimmel appeared on The Jay Leno Show Thursday night for Leno’s “10 @ 10” segment. During the segment, Kimmel answered 10 questions from Leno via satellite, with some of his answers leaving Leno looking none too happy. If anything, Kimmel was even more scathing than he was Tuesday night on his own show!

“What’s the secret to a good Jay Leno impression?” Leno asked Kimmel during the segment.

“Well, I don’t like to give away my secrets,” Kimmel said. “But it’s a combination of Sylvester the Cat, Curly from The Three Stooges and Scrappy-Doo.”

When asked what his favorite prank was, Kimmel told Leno: “I told a guy that five years from now, I’m going to give you my show, and then I gave it to him and took it back almost instantly,” Kimmel said. “I think he works at Fox or something now.”

“Ever order anything off the TV?” Leno asked.

“You mean the way NBC ordered your show off the TV?” Kimmel replied.

Wrapping up, Jimmy Kimmel landed one more good smack to Jay Leno in closing. “Listen, Jay, Conan and I have children,” he said. “All you have to take care of is cars. We have lives to lead here. You have $800 million. For God’s sake, leave our shows alone!”

Jay Leno Talks About Show Cancellation Rumors

In his opening monologue Thursday night, Jay Leno addressed rumors about The Jay Leno Show being cancelled by NBC. Leno joked about calling Katie Couric to see how her move from NBC to another network is working out for her.

Leno went on to mock his own host network a bit by saying NBC only cancels shows when “they are in first place” and opined that NBC stands for “never believe your contract.”

The rumors of a drastic change for The Jay Leno Show continue to swirl, however. The latest gab roaming the Net is speculation NBC may move Leno back to the old Tonight Show 11:35 p.m. spot – pushing Conan O’Brien to 12:05 and Jimmy Fallon to 1:05.
