Fallon, Leno, and Letterman All Addressed the "Tonight Show" Takeover Last Night
Leno worked the announcement into his monologue, where he seemed to be in good spirits, although it did not improve the jokes. Man, how did this guy stay on top for 20 years?
The surprise of the night may have been Dave, who discussed the situation at length, because you know Dave kind of loves this stuff. I don't really know what's going on between Dave and Leno anymore, but Dave was very congratulatory on Jay's long career, as well as gracious, and he also mentioned that he and Jay had been friends for 38 years, and he didn't add a wisecrack. Really, "friends"?
Conan, for the record, also wished Jimmy Fallon good luck.
Now we can stop talking about it, at least until Dave announces his retirement.
