"I think when you agree to do something like that, you put a certain amount of faith in the institution, hoping that they'll take care of you, and I feel like they didn't [take care of him]. Why hire James Franco and then give him Billy Crystal's monologue? It was like, "Oh, we'll hire these young hosts and then we'll just do the same sh*t we do every f*cking year." Which to me was really odd. I think they just approached it wrong. They didn't think it through, and they were way underprepared. I think they hung him out to dry. So I wouldn't do it unless they hired some better writers [laughs]."
