Jay Leno must have heard the rumors that he was gearing up to get replaced with Jimmy Fallon by the head honchos over at NBC, because he doubled down on the funny — twice in one night! ZING!
During his monologue, he took the opportunity to nail it to the network TWICE!
He said, “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC too. I was stunned by that.”
Afterward, he joked, “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? I think it’s going to be OK. This is real: I had dinner last night with a bunch of NBC executives. To make it up to me, what they did, they are sending my wife and I on an all expenses paid Carnival cruise. How about that? So it looks like it’s going to be OK. Fantastic!”
At the end of next year, it’s being rumored that Jay will be replaced by Jimmy. As much of a stranger he is to comedy, these last few days, he’s had a few zingers. Who knew?!?
What do you think should happen with Jay Leno? Should he be replaced by Jimmy Fallon? Should they wait until the end of next year to give him the boot? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!
