That NBC late night fiasco is so 2010, but as Conan O’Brien settles into a new network, Jay Leno appears to be taking a lot of heat.
One of his own guests, “Parks & Recreation” star Amy Poehler, even called him a “[bleeping] a**hole” – to his face!
Okay, so she was goaded into it after Leno encouraged her to swear in a Boston accent on Wednesday's “Tonight Show,” but Howard Stern? He didn’t seem to be giving Leno as good-natured a ribbing the other day on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
“He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman’s feet,” Stern said. “I don’t know why he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings, it’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons…the ones that are watching him must be watching him in a coma.”
Leno, Stern said, “did a terrible thing to Conan O'Brien…It wasn’t business at all.”
Tell us how you really feel, Howard.
