I want to give all the credit for the fantastic way in which Leno and Fallon address the current late-night war situation to Fallon, but every once in a while, Leno displays a funny self-awareness that we can't completely dismiss (see also: His appearance on "Louie," as well as his Super Bowl commercial with Letterman and Oprah). Whosever idea it was, it's the perfect was to address the controversy. At the very least, it boots the can of responsibility to NBC. Whatever happens over the next year, it's nothing personal between Fallon and Jay. I appreciate that, even if Leno is Satan's butt crack.

Well done.

    I think Jay has a future as an Italian opera singer.

    ...even if Leno is Satan’s butt crack.
    Satan's sweaty, fungus-ridden, unduly exposed butt crack.

    Even when Leno tries to make fun of himself, I still can't stand him. It feels like just another fake PR move. Even when sweet as a puppy Fallon is involved. I don't think the man has a sincere bone left in his body. Have a fun retirement with your stupid cars, Jay.

    So you're basically saying that this was all Jimmy?

  • MissAmynae

    Is anyone else hoping CBS will answer with Craig Ferguson and Geoff in a duet of "I Feel Pretty (In Your Pants)"?

  • googergieger

    If I'd watch NBC at all, I'd curmudgeon the hell out of this post.

  • e jerry powell

    What the fuck is on NBC anyway?

  • Shows why Jimmy is ready and deserving of the big chair.

  • Cazadora

    One of the classiest bits of television I have seen in awhile. Very well done.

  • Cazadora

    Not sure why I was downvoted on such an innocuous statement...Conan is that you? No, wait, you aren't bitter....hmmm maybe Kimmel is trolling...no that can't be it, too nice a guy...somebody from cable, maybe?

    (It's actualy George Lopez.)

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    No. Matt Damon. Or Carson Daly.

  • e jerry powell

    Carson who?

    Oh, you mean that even-more-pathetic-than-Seacrest Seacrest wannabe?

  • Torgotronic

    Awesome; what a cool way to defuse the whole Late NIght Wars 2 crapola. I never thought much of Jimmy when he was on SNL, but wow has my opinion changed in the last couple of years; he is a unique talent. Jay's comedic stylings will never be my cup of tea (though his online car show is great), but this showed some class. Well done all around.
