leno-and-letterman.jpgSo a guy I know heard from this guy he knows that this other guy said that Jay Leno is leaving “The Tonight Show” next year or some junk. It can’t be true, because the same guy says that Jimmy fucking Fallon is taking over for Conan when Conan takes over for “The Tonight Show” and that just don’t make no sense to nobody.

But, of course, we all know it to be true. Now, after having long ago lost his own shot at running the show that Carson built, Letterman has come to Leno’s defense. See, NBC has kind of treated Leno like shit, insofar as it’s making him stick to his committment to leave the show next spring. And Letterman doesn’t get it:

Unless I’m misunderstanding something, I don’t know why, after the job Jay has done for them, why they would relinquish that. I guess they thought it was a less messy way to handle what happened to me at NBC. I don’t know.

I dunno Dave. But the solution is not — I repeat, is not — to have Leno be a guest on your show. Says Dave:

I think he’d be a great guest on the show. The first night that he is out of a job, I think that would be a great situation.

Seriously dude. Next May, our long national nightmare finally comes to an end. Just let Leno rest in peace, would ya?

Don't Sully Yourself Dave. Don't Do It!
