Jimmy Kimmel says he feels bad hurting other peoples’ feelings, but he makes an exception for Jay Leno because “I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings.”
The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host, who has mocked Leno in the past, revisits his dislike for “The Tonight Show” host in a new interview with Playboy.
“He doesn’t seem to be that worried about other people’s feelings,” Kimmel told the magazine. “Strangely I don’t even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I’m asked.”
The comedian went on to say, regarding his show monologue, “If I can imagine Jay Leno telling a joke, then I won’t do it, even if it’s a good joke.”
The rivalry between the hosts became even more tense when “Jimmy Kimmel Live” moved to 11:35 p.m. in January, pitting him against Leno and David Letterman.
However, the ratings war hasn’t affected Kimmel’s feelings toward the “Late Night with David Letterman” host.
“Dave transcends any time slot; he is the father of comedy as we now know it,” he said. “I wonder if he knows what he means to every comedian under 50 years old.”
we stick up for each other
Jay Leno isn't funny. He isn't a good guy. Don't stick up for him. JK is right.
Johnny was classy. Letterman is snarky but funny. Kimmel is average. Ferguson should not be on TV, and wouldn't be except for his accent. Fallon is a nice guy, but he is rare in that he appears less intelligent than many of the viewers. Conan is too intellectual for TV. Leno is for people who like their comedy safe and defanged. Basically they are all safe as milk and cookies, compared with "dangerous" comedians like Bill Hicks or Louis CK.
LCK is not funny. He's weird n creepy.
Awwe The devoted fans of "the One" (Know them for their psychotically slobbering love for this miscreant) just can't stomach someone who would utter anything that made the greatest of the greatest ..the butt of a joke!
he could care less...Kimmel is on the town.
Let the comedian take a breath already!
He hurted the pwesident's feelings. What a baaaad man!
When is this jerk going to stop complaining about Leno. If he hardly ever talks about Leno anymore why doesn't he just say, "No comment" when asked. That's what Johnny Carson would have done. All these guys site Carson as their inspiration for wanting to become Talk show hosts but not a single one of them have his level of class. They all act like spoiled teenagers.
Kimmel stating that Jay Leno "has no feelings" is mean=spirited. Leno is a warm, endearing comic, gracious and hilarious with his guests. He has lasted through decades due to his charm and comedic genius. I don't understand why Kimmel is beating up on Leno, especially with such personal remarks that will hurt Leno's feelings - who's the basher? Laura Daltry
Are you any relation to Roger? Blam! Boing! Hunh?
your can't see jn –yn watching.
Letterman needs more awards.
Last week’s numbers Leno 3.8 Million viewers, Letterman 3.1 Million viewers, and Kimmel 2.8 Million. (Conan 0.8 Million)
NBC was right !
Conan doesn't have high ratings because you need to purchase his channel to watch. The others you can get with antenna for free. I find myself watching Letterman when bored as I don't have cable. I've accidently left the channel tuned into Leno and thought "oh god, what have I done?!"
I don't think Jimmy Kimmel is good enough himself to be critical of Jay. I don't even understand how he got this job to host a late night show. I actually think nobody watches his show. I know that he was unable to keep my attention for more than three minute with his jokes. He is NOT FUNNY. I don't care what the owners of the media tell all of America but this guy stinks as a comedian. He has no sense of timing and his jokes are NOT FUNNY. And one more thing, he will probably start bad mouthing Letterman soon.
Honestuct I completely agree with you... never understood Kimmel's popularity; he is a bore...
Kimmel is very creative and knows what is funny, but he should learn to keep his mouth shut or he'll be yet another celebrity who has committed career suicide by speaking out of turn. Whether he likes it or not, the majority of the American public still believes that if you can't say something nice about somebody, don't say anything at all.
You mean Jimmy Kimmel has a show? What network? CW? CSPAN?
I don't think I've ever seen a Kimmel show. The goober is just annoying. And dont get me started on Fallon, a complete HACK. Seriously, I don't know how both ever got to where they got, I have a strong feeling it has something to do with cronyism thats so rampant in the entertainment world. There are funnier more authentic comedians out there.
Johnny is a god. Dave is great but he gets annoying with his lefty stuff, seems lazy and bored doing the show now. Conan is probably the best next to Craig Ferguson who's truly one heck of a funny, creative, fun guy.
But Goober Pack – Kimmel and Fallon? Please – boring pretentious HACKS.
For many years Dave was absolutely gold. Then sometime in the late 90's he started getting a little crabby and far too political. His interviewing skills are still second to none, but like Carson before him, he has lost his edge.
Leno has always seemed likable but the only strong point in his offering is his monologue, which has been the gold standard for many years. While his monologue is still funny, for some reason it's not quite as snarky as it was before the whole Conan/Jay debacle. Leno's interviewing skills have consistently been horrible.
Kimmel is the funniest ad-lib comedien of them all and presents a strogn blend of stand-up and interviewing. In my opinion the most underrated of all the late night shows.
Conan, in his Late Night prime was out of this world funny. Since moving to 11:35 his shtick seems forced and tired. He still has his moments but his act has worn thin.
Fallon is pretty funny, with the exception of his monolouge. I contribute that more to his writing staff than anything. Fallon shows his guests more respect than any of the talk show hosts (exception: Michelle Bachman), and his show seems to have strong creative juice. That said, there's not a whole lot of substance overall.
There's my two-cents. I believe Jon Stewart could have been a potential late-night king had he been given the opportunity. And I don't know about you, but am I the only one missing Craig Kilborn? That guy was money!
Great job, Dan ! Very insightful and I pretty much agree with everything you said except I am at the point of disliking Conan.It is a bad sign when your sidekick (Andy Richter) is funnier then the host. Conan, with his stupid gyrations, dancing and playing with his hair needs someone to tell him that is not funny.
Craig Ferguson has gotten better, but it is another case of having a funnier sidekick. The comedian that does the gay robot is talented and very funny.
CONAN TRUMPS THEM ALL! (and no, not Donald )
Do not agree, Conan does the same thing every night and is hard to look at, but they are all hard to look at.
The numbers show that most people who watch late night would disagree with you; by a very large margin.
NICKI MINAJ KIMMEL needs to find something else to complain about. It would be refreshing. Hey Jimmy – are your feminine products not doing their job?? YOU STINK! David Fallon has 100x the draw power that you do.
Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Jay Leno di d a free show in Vegas for no other reason than to help kickstart the tourism industry there again. I think the whole Conan thing also had a lot more to do with NBC not knowing what they were doing than with Leno himself. Just look at how fall NBC has fallen since their early/late 90's heyday.
Kimmel just seems OK.
Leno is great and is consistant.
Fallon is funny.
Conan is awesome if you're in the right mood.
Letterman seems the most arrogant and even mean. Plus his "preaching to the choir" anit-conservative jokes just seem desperate.
Who cares what Kimmel thinks or what Leno does or doesn't do.
With the unemployment , gas prices and economy in general there's NOTHING to laugh at.
These men make 7 figures a year.
Let them fight each other in a stadium; then I might watch them.
My wife and I have been present in the live audiences of both the Tonight Show and The Late Show. During commercial breaks Letterman was very animated with both the audience and his guests. Leno, not so much. We were there when Ben Afleck was a guest. During commercials both sat stonily and quietly. They didn't talk to each other and Leno didn't talk to the audience or anybody else. Leno sat there like a wax doll.
We were not impressed with the off camera persona.
but that's just me, hollering from the choir loft...
Everything Kimmel says about Jay is spot on. Every bit Leno has done he has stolen from David Letterman. Leno is without shame. Disgraceful what he did to Conan O'Brien. And it seems like he is scared about offending Republicans. He always has Republican losers on his show, like Bill O'Reilly or Dennis Miller. Leno has sold out his soul to the extremist Republican party.
Are you kidding me? Bill O'Reilly has been on Letterman at least twice a year for the last 4 years and on Leno only 3 times in 7 years. Where did you get your information from? If Leno is pro Republican, than Letterman is the DNC chair. Get real. Letterman is just another outlet for for the liberal media while Leno is the neutral one.
There are Democrat extremists too. So what if Leno panders to Republicans, this is the USA, he's free to do what he and his network feels is the right thing for his audience. Go watch the other goober hacks and live out your liberal fantasies.
Letterman has O'Reilly on his show, but then he beats him like a rug. Make up your minds. One guy says "Letterman is a leftist" and the next one "Letterman is right-wing." Not everyone is a total political junkie who judges others on their ideological purity.
I think the real genius of late night comedy is Jimmy Falon. I like Dave, I like Jay, I'm luke warm on Kimmel. But Jimmy Falon is where the true talent lies. He's fabulous.
Jimmy Fallon is hugely funny....not to me....but to my 8 year old kid..... Leno is probably funny to an not to bright but twisted 12 year old boy.....
Dave/Conan/Jimmy....all very funny to us average nice peoplle with brains.....and they know it. Leno is just playing to a demographic for ratings....kind of schill.
We do not like Kimmel. He is tastless and classless . He was very boring when he was in the White House. Appearing in the White House makes Kimmel's brain shrinking to zero. He continues bashing Leno for months. Media should tell him off. Audience are the ones who judge who is good not Kimmel's loud, filthy mouth. Do not respond Leno. You're classy and please continue doing so.
Jimmy Kimmel is hilarious! Jay Leno is pretty funny as well and so is David Letterman. All these guys are funny. You can't really say that none of them have ever said anything funny in their lives. I enjoy watching all. But you have to admit that Leno does have a ruthless side to himself. He did work under the table to get the Tonight Show away from Letterman and then back from Conan. He's not exactly an angel. It's pretty apparent from guests that have been forced to go on his show to promote their new movies that several people are upset with Leno (just watch Robert DeNiro's last appearance).
Leno is great for the over 70 crowd, otherwise his humor is YAWN. Kimmell is funnier, timelier, and isnt pompous like Leno.
Who is this "we" you are referring to?
"We?" Mark Twain once said "three orders of men, by right, speak of themselves as "we". These are editors, royal personages, and people with tapeworms.
Jay is the best since Johnny, Kimmel get lost and go back to your NFL gig on FOX, you (loser).
Johnny wanted Dave to have the show. Johnny wrote gags for Letterman; he used one days before Johnny died. Leno is like a wax dummy.
only if you're 97 or older
Kimmel apparently has an obsession with Leno. In a recent Rolling Stone article half the time he talked about Leno and even cruised by the club where Leno performs on weekends twice – on his way out and on his way home. I guess the preliminary numbers must be that Leno is beating him.
Leno may have corny humor, but it's funny and he's a good interviewer because he doesn't use an interview to tell his own jokes like Letterman, Kimmel, and others.
Who is Jimmy Kimmle?
He's the guy who got parents of 4 5 and 6 year old kids to cry by telling them that they had eaten all of their holloween candy and then airing the kids responses on his show. This should tell you what type of a person he is and what he thinks is humorous..
Sounds to me like Jimmy thinks about Leno a lot more than he says he does. After all, he says he imagines the jokes Leno does each night and won't do one if he thinks Leno would do it. I think Kimmel is obsessed with Leno.
Why is CNN so bent on beating up Leno? Is it because he's on NBC. Give me a break. Leno is # 1 in the late night ratings, while Kimmell is LAST. With JK making these comments, just makes him look stupid and like a sore loser. Why is this even on CNN homepage anyway???
Check the amount of hits on this story and get back to us, OK?
Letterman the FATHER of comedy?????
Get some perspective, man.
If you think that's true, then you must be a Johnny Carson hater. Did you know that Mr. Carson himself stated that Dave Letterman is heir to his throne? All NBC cares about IS ratings. That's why their attempts to achieve their goal by 'any means necessary' is blowing up in their collective faces. Killing off Law and Order before it could surpass Gunsmoke as the longest running TV show in history. The whole Conan O'Brien fiasco. The abyssmal ratings for that new show 'Do no Harm". The list goes on and on with recent NBC failures ... and their fortunes won't change until they start treating people with respect.
I think what he means is that Letterman is the father of the modern talk show for the current generation, just like Johnny was for the previous generation.
can't wait to see the show!
there was never a vito
Kimmel is nothing without Adam Carolla by his side. You'll never hear Leno say that publicly because he's the better man (or smarter, don't know him well enough to say which). Letterman USED to be the funniest, but those days are long gone. Letterman still has good interview skills, but his monologue is a waste of airtime. Personally, I think ALL late nite TV is a waste of time, but late nite with Kimmel is something even worse...
Couldn't agree with you more. JK is in love with himself. Left his wife right after he become popular on the "man show." His LAST place in the late night ratings tell one all they need to know.
no turn the battery up
do you not understand your the butt of all the jokesS
MONEY & POWER NO RESPECT...THAT HOW THINGS GO....
Grow up Kimmel, you must need attention. Jay Leno has never said anything about this whole jealousy thing you and Letterman have going on. Time to let go and move on.......you sound like high school girls! Enough. Leno is the bigger and better one by not saying anything...... Love Leno!
Put Kimmel back under Ben Stein where he belongs. He was actually funny as a second banana. Wait... come to think of it, Fergusens' GEOFF is funnier than Kimmel.
Leno may be a terrible human being but he comes off looking better because he never talks bad about his peers. In life, if you go around talking about how terrible another person is, even if it is true, if you go on and on about it, it makes you start to look like the bad guy.
Jimmy Kimmel needs publicity, he has none! What better target other than Jay Leno? Leno is after all number 1 in the late show category! One doesn't get that accolade by being a loser. Kimmel is a cheap imitation of Leno and Letterman!
If I had any advice for Jimmy Kimmel it would be this:
If you really feel the way you do about Leno, your unprofessional demeanor lacks class and you will fail!
However, if you are the least bit reticent about all the BS about Jay Leno, fire the sleaze-ball who is for this silly dumb was of drumming up and increasing your popularity because you're coming through as a cry baby and a jerk!
there was no vito–well there is a vito but he's my cousin and would give 1 second of his time too blogging.
Leno does a better monologue, Letterman is better interacting with his guests. The joke is how Letterman feels and looks so uncomfortable and often times disgusted around celebrities. Leno connects more with the average middle of the road American, Letterman is abit more edgy.
Get tired of Kimmel, Letterman, Conan and Stern badmouthing Jay.
Prefer Leno and Jimmy Fallon. Used to occasionally watch Kimmel but when he publically starting putting Leno down and using foul language toward him-Lost all respect and won't watch him now.
Best reply ever!!!
I'm not a big fan of either. Leno seems rather immoral and Kimmel is just talent-less.
Not sure if tiny mouth or big chin. 0_o
Don't get me wrong though I think Leno is the shizzle.
I am puzzled by the number of posts on this thread that claim the likes of Ferguson, Kimmel, Stewart, Colbert are funny. Not one on the list is a legitimate comedian – not remotely funny.
Jay Leno is marginally good because of his staff and producers. As a comedian, his annoying tendency to repeat punch lines suggests a need to "sell" the joke. Real, legitimate comedians need not do such a thing.
David Letterman is arguably the best late night TV has to offer. Generally captures and holds attention – garning a fair amount of laughter. Again, writers and producers tend to make his popularity consistently high.
Of course, we are deprived of true comedic entertainment in the late night spots. We are long past the greats of Milton Berle, Steve Allen, Corbett Monica, Red Skelton (amazingly talented), Shecky Green, et al. They knew what comedy truly was – and how to deliver it.
Ahhh, those were the days!
first paragraph kimmel is me
second paragraph leno is gaga
third paragraph letterman is boo
forth paragraph the old section is me again right?
A legitimate comedian? Sounds like you're getting a little subjective... So do you have to do stand-up to be funny? Colbert's quick wit is far beyond anybody mentioned on your list. And you think Letterman is good? The guy morphed from someone who could never stop himself from laughing at his own jokes to a guy pushes in political views in his 'comedy', and thinks that everything that comes out of his mouth is funny. And just like 99% of late-night nowadays, his creativity is limited to third-grade skits. Not to mention the fact that he abused female members of his staff and got off with a pseudo 'apology'.
You left out Grouch Marx, Jack Benny, Henny Youngman, Don Rickles, and Rodney Dangerfield.
I don't even like Leno but saying he's not a "real, legitimate comedian" proves yo have no idea what you're talking about.
Thanks for playing though.
I have to kind of agree with you. The old comedians really put their heart into it. I saw Don Rickles last year and I can tell you this, at 86 he brought the very mixed house down he was so fantastic. It was 2 hours of him, kibitzing with the audience, dancing, singing, telling jokes. The times is incredible and you can actually see the pleasure of performing on his face.
Letterman is terrible. He's been phoning it in for year. Leno isn't much better. But here's the thing. Leno can't be that bad if he consistently win DESPITE being on the last place network!
Johnny Carson was the King of Late Night.
towards these 2 men is that serious that it has to revert to blogging to create some sort of communication?
Come on Lettterman your better then that!
these are humans not beers.....i am talking to you from one man to another...release the bitter.
Craig Ferguson is the only truly talented late night host. Craig respects Letterman only because Letterman was enforced as a mentor to him.
Craig Ferguson all the way that all the other bud-light, coors light type hosts!
Craig is not funny and is extremely annoying and dorky.
in order for us to go forward as humans...i need your help...we can do it....
When your name is James and you go by "Jimmy" you are either 6 years old or a gay
stop the bitter–so she can stop the bitter...
unfortunately those are the people i will try too simmer down.
Craig Ferguson > all others
why are you so affected by what heavy adele says or does...some feelings. eh?
I prefer to watch Conan. I hope Jay is a nice guy. Over the years I've heard Howard Stern rip on him about stealing jokes, then the Conan thing happened, and now everyone is ripping on Jay.
When I happen to catch Jay, in my opinion, he is just a normal dude and that is his appeal with people. He's not a great comedian. In his interviews he just lets the host go on and on about nothing, doesn't throw in any witty jokes really, just sits there. Compare this to any other host mentioned here.
If he's a generous person and people enjoy watching him then great. Life is too short to fight over... F-ing entertainment show hosts. Who cares, people can take care of themselves. Conan is brilliant, and doing fine, and his humor was never meant for mainstream moms and dads getting a midnight snack then going to bed.
* lets the guest go on and on
Kimmel who? Only a low life would publicly voice his dislike for someone.
you just did.
some bumps in the road....it will all fly away.
Jimmy's overplaying his hand. It was kind of funny when he first slammed Leno but now it sounds immature and annoying. Letterman was great early on, but has been mailing it in since going to CBS. Grow up Jimmy, you're looking like a tool.
The things that people do to remain relevant. Hang in there Jay, if there are talking about you, they could've picked a better topic...
i enjoy these shows so much it makes me bust a gut with laughter...
the gay guys has feelings for the other gay guy...end of story.....theorpy session over.
dumb hairdo man...said my relationship with you was the right thing too do and too leave the blogs because i am the only material the bloggers have....he encourages us to be friends. thank you and good bye
T, why don't you and your friend email each other so the rest of us don't have to listen to your crap?
*to not "too". Too complicated to explain. (see how that works?) Look it up.
I think these middle school kids are doing this in class under a teacher's nose. Why not let them just drop out? What useless drones they must be.
Nobody said a bad thing about you....i said you treat me well and the problem that i am having is my problem that will be corrected....i said the ju and marzy treat me like uncles and you and i–if you want me too be more friendly then you must let me know otherwise i will remain in my place....nobody bad mouth the store or you.....
"KIMMEL LACKS ACTUAL TALENT!!"
going forward i will let you know every single conversation being over heard so there is no misunderstanding about what i am saying....bye
I just read a Rolling Stone issue a month ago where he was doing nothing but complaining about Leno. I don't watch any of them, but Colbert.
Heh Leno has a hell of a lot of feelings enough for several people. When due to budget cuts he gave back millions of
his salary to keep his people working. What ceo in this country would ever due that. Jay has a bigger heart than
Jimmy Kimmell could ever have, shame on him. He is also a great military supporter and has his audience many times
filled with Army, Navy,Air Force, Marines,National Guard,Coast Guard. As a Navy veteran I admire Jay he is the greatest and also funnier than Kimmell. Letterman is funny too and I like him to and he has matured to be a nice guy.
Leno and Letterman are okay as comedians but Kimmel is not funny at all there is why he needs to call the attention talking badly about a colleague. Ethics, Kimmel, ethics.
AND BING WAS ITS NAME O
Anyone who thinks Letterman is overrated is clueless. Letterman helped lift Leno's career years back when Leno was a regular guest on his show. As a host Letterman is up there with Carson.
all Letterman does is make goufy faces - he sis some funny stuff decades ago when he was copying Steve Allen. Letterman has not been funny in a long time. He is pretty sanctimonious for a guy who chases young girls around
It's interesting, don't you think, just how important Jay Leno continues to be to Jimmy Kimmel...
Leno seems pretty good at faking being nice then. He seems to go out of his way to take part in public events and from what I have seen seems to be friendly to everyone at the events. So whats the difference?
Anyone who thinks Letterman is great has no credibility.
I'd say the guy who is obsessed with making another guy look as bad as possible every chance he gets is the one with "feelings" issues.
these guys are gay right?
I just wanted to put my two cents in but couldn't sign in for some reason. So I hope you don't mind if I use your coat tails to do just that Rick. :)
There is has never been anyone even close to as good as Johnny Carson! Not even Dave Letterman!
Good point. And...who's Jimmy Kimmel??
I have never understood the idolization of David Letterman. He can be funny but I don't think he is brilliant. I don't think Leno is the best comedian but as a host I think he is genuine, unlike Kimmel. Kimmel needs to stop defending O'brien, he was shown to have limited appeal and the NBC honchos should get the wrath, not Leno.
I think with Letterman, he basically shaped the genre, even though others may have followed his lead and done a better job.
Don't agree that other current hosts have done it better than Letterman. As for him creating the genre, he took bits and pieces from others (Steve Allen with his "man on street stuff", Carson, etc) so I don't see him as the innovator of the genre.
You just forgot to add "In my opinion..."
Leno was never funny, Kimmel nailed it on the head. Carson was the best of all of them, and Letterman would have been a far better choice as late night successor.
over 5,000 emails have been flooded into my hotmail address (just trying to make you understand what lenm is going through)
I am slowly getting rid of this person but you can understand my frustrations.
as you can see what i am living with the last 6 months. i don't care about your lifestyle, choices whatever...i love too go out also and have a good time.
its closing tomorrow.
i just saw that vision of loveliness today while getting my cafe ole.....sorry i look lousy this morning boo.
"“Strangely I don’t even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I’m asked.”
The comedian went on to say, regarding his show monologue, “If I can imagine Jay Leno telling a joke, then I won’t do it, even if it’s a good joke.”"
I thought he didn't think about him unless asked.
Leno is the best talent has too offer, Letterman very funny, Kimmels has nothing
what a class act ....
these guys are the best in the business–kimmels needs to go he does not draw ratings and a fool.
these are great comedians and i love all 3 that's why kimmel iss such a downer and so predictable and rude to the public.his ratings continue too stink as they always have and i have no respect for the guy..
kimmel is a putz....ring.
letterman is the best, leno is a class act, kimmelS is stoopid
that's we get more social...
I like Jay, but I'll have to admit I still miss Carson.lol Jay is a true auto historian too, don't forget that.
1. letterman is fine
2. jay is the best
4. Kimmels doen't exist
we are all fed up with Kimmels...my view is letterman is number 1, leno is number 2, o'brien is number 3
and kimmels is nowhere......
Your not a christian...
You're almost there.
has dignity and has put up with enough from kimmels–kimmels truly has too be careful now. what he did too jay is huge.
kimmels is low end..
A pedophile is higher on the food chain than kimmel.
i support those 3 because they are loved by all.
he is the best at what he does and he's a classy dude for putting up with that trash kimmels.
i'm a huge supporter of those guys...leno sucks
I am so sick of Kimmel, O'Brien and Letterman piling on Jay. Everytime these three babies open their mouths and blast Jay once again, I get annoyed. It's childish and disgusting. What I have learned in all of this is Jay is the one with the class.
you bet leno is a class act and supports the other 3 comedians 100%
those guys are the best we have in the business
Leno stinks. Letterman is Stale .... Kimmel is fresh, and can take on the big boys, easilly> Eat it,Jay! ... then go home.. We`ve all had enough.
head down tess.
Friendly rivalry is fine, but when Letterman, O'Brien and Kimmel pile it on Jay, I get the feeling it's because they know he's THE BEST!!!
I get tired of Kimmel, Letterman, and Conan. Prefer Leno and Jimmy Fallon . They do not put down others to make themselves look good. Used to occasionally like Kimmel but avoid watching him now because I even heard him put Leno down at the Kennedy Center when he honored Letterman. Definitely tacky. Kimmel thinks Letterman is so good and considers him a Role Model. Lost respect for Kimmel, Letterman and Conan.
agreed. letterman is the funniest i love his show, leno is the best we have..kimmel sucks.
letterman always gets my support...he has the funnies joke writers ever.
chela is funny
Is this the same Jimmy Kimmel who always looks like he's O.D.'d on laxatives?
good one devin ..ha
jay was advised to continue, jimmy is not and example for television.
kimmel is unprofessional -
Not everyone likes Leno, like I don't. And Kimmel is right, he is just a greedy, boring host that does not want other younger, more talented people surface. I cannot stand the guy.......
david letterman always gets my support.
Jay has the personality, jimmy does not his comment was out of jealouSy. He really needs too be on..otherwise.
Jay has been directed from television executive that daily business will continue.
Jaym leno is the commander of television and will always be...again i would not worry about jimmy kimmel it appearS
he has his own problems....
1 from cnn exec last night which is the accurate one
2 versions of blogs are on trp top
just keeping things straight...thanks
jay is the master at what he does and will always be....kimmel iS what we call low end television...
jay is the commander and in charge of this operation ==
this person has an obsession with me so we are looking at a disorder....we will leave her alone because its a mental case–blue as a friend requests unhook or he will have to go in....i'm sorry but enough is enough with this person
trying too ruin me....i'm the commander in chief of this situation.
business as usual
its a woman–id theft is a problem in this country and a new project for me....men in blue said 95% of all internet infomation is not accurate. stealing a social is.
Kimmel isn't funny, his show is lame... So since he cant fix it he needs to bring the comp down to him... That being said I don't care for any of the late talk shows... cept maybe Ferguson...
kimmel sucks how's that.
It's a good start. And in Leno's defense, I'm pretty sure he took a pay cut to keep some of his staffers from getting fired by the network. That's got to count for something in terms of having feelings.
Actually Bill Petersen...it simply means Leno wanted to keep his job and doing so meant taking a pay cut. That simple.
leno is a so good and his ratings prove it. letterman is the worst comedian on the planet. kimmel is mean, jealous and a bad person
Well, actually Scott, he gave up HIS money to keep those people working. The network was going to fire those people and keep the show. It had nothing to do with his job being on the line.
Jesus Christ, does anyone here know how to write or spell correctly. No matter America is in the toilet.
"no matter" America is in the toilet?
"no matter" or "no wonder" ?
Either one would be fine, but he is missing a comma. No matter.
leno is trying to to be the good guy all the time, Kimmel who is a full anger and jealousy. kimmel needs stay away from leno risk a serious problem...fallon is funny and david is great. Kimmel does not draw in popularity like leno does– that's why people are not too pleased with what kimmel did.
carson is number 1, leno is 2, letterman 3, o'brien 4, kimmel not included he is way too jealous and far from being a nice person. leno will have his ass if he gets too close too him again.
Leno will never be ahead of Letterman. Mainly because he's a lying, whining baby that has to have his way. He (Leno) isn't funny, his head looks like an anvil and he's awkward. Letterman had it in his contract waaaay back that he was to have Johnny's show when he retired. Leno cried like the baby he is and got his way. Leno left TV, someone else gets his show, Leno wants to come back and just expects the network to fall all over him HE'S NOT EVEN FUNNY!!!!
I met jay at the classic car auction at Mandalay Bay Las Vegas. He talked to everyone including a small time buyer like me and is a genuine hands on mechanic. Kimmel is a wanna be comedian who can only pump gas if the directions are on the nozzel.
One is a mechanic. The other is a comedian.
fallon is young and good looking but his schtick is a bit of a bore, jimmy is confused and likes causing trouble without knowing anything especially when he is way too nosey he has too be careful of that he could lose his job which jay needs too watch his back with kimmels because let's face jimmy is not a ratings drawer, jay is and always will be. jimmy needs to work on delusional behavior
I've been to the letterman show many times..i never saw any que cards...leno is the best there is and jimmy is a jealous person and needs more ratings.
Leno is very funny and a good business Man however don't push because will have jimmy's head, david will always be david
Letterman is the most overrated comedian on earth. Never been to his show, but it wouldn't surprise me if someone behind the cameras holds up a laugh sign so that people know when to laugh. It's as if people are laughing just to be polite or that it's just what they are supposed to do.
What gets me is how long Letterman pauses between jokes to get the laughs...BORING. Jay is fast paced and always has the best jokes - he's the best!!
bob hope use too pause for the laugh also.
Jimmy is funny. Dave is funny. Jay is NOT funny.
i'm so glad they are calmer towards each other. Kimmels is in a shattered world with not much happening but his delusional jealousy towards Jay. Kimmels inaccuracy behavior can cause himself to loSe further ratings and popularity because lets face he's not funny.
What a remarkably hypocritical thing for Kimmel to say!
Jim needs too watch his back now with jay finding everything out about the numbers it iS not a good move for jim's career too be jealous. jay knows the source so it will be much easier now too get him he says something stupid again.
jimmy has nowhere too go.
is talking about stuff that happend years ago and is basically bipolar and jealous of others. jay is the class act and still looks great for his age and a caring person, david is the same...kimme'ss personality causes a huge gap between him and society inter cauSing him to lose fans that he really needS too keep in order too keep his job.
david and jay have it...kimmel does not....kimmel will go through desperate measures to remain on top but it will never happen because he is looking and things from years ago that do not exist anymore and truthfully should be in forced termination for doing what he did. from what was viewed....kimmel is low end and the numbers are not that much different then other numbers. jay gets alot of financial perks, kimmel gets nothing.
same story, same garbage of cauSing trouble and not suppose to be doing what he does. if he wants too remain employed he better shut his mouth...he's on thin ice with jay leno and basically Jay has full power of kimmel's
David and Conan are right there also....kimmels is not good quality business, no personality and basically a huge trouble maker not a customer drawer like Jay Leno and David Letterman.
In the end Kimmel is jealous and can't do it....financials are from 2,000 years ago and were all clean up....
kimmel has to watch his back in order to remain employed.
there a bunch of versions of this blog so far we've printed three. thank.s
his being jealous of leno is something that we need too no care about. basically kimmel is a waste.
it doesn't bother him jay can have him throw out but jay is the best candidate for the job....kimmels
is a waste of energy and an enbarrassment to business and the network.
version of blogs today . .thank you
print thanks...why was she in the returns?
there are 2 versions of these blogs...i printed both. thanks
again squad questions not answered....what was she doing in the returns in the first place?
Yes I did. Then I laughed really hard when I saw you have a minimum wage job and still managed to owe the IRS $3,000 dollars. Dude, you need to go to a professional tax prep service. You filled out the 1040EZ all wrong.
and disgraced anybody with their lives-these abusers don't even know what happened that day and posted i owed 3,000 ...i knew the form was wrong and went to boken to have it done....why am i explaining something too a fat pig
i never checked one thing about this person..who is it? we are going too find out now. we have too and get rid of the negativity and dirt....
Neither of these guys are funny. They just recycle 40 year old jokes and match them up with current events.
nothing was done to you, nobody hacked into your life and you should be in prison right now.... i have class
your a piece of garbage off the street...you don't know whats going, you don't know what happened and your talking about leno m on a blog-your an illegal.
you don't know a dam thing about me...as god as my witness the day i have your name or get sick over this
you will be terminated from your position...
your treat leno m like sh-t and we're not taking it anymore...
why is Kimmel always such an ass towards Leno? Leno never did anything to him and many regard him as one of the nicest people in showbiz, at least before the whole Conan fiasco. fine, make fun of him for that since he deserves SOME of it, but that's over and done and Kimmel crosses the line between being funny and being a dick. i don't even watch Leno but i think most can tell he isn't this bad person that Kimmel makes him out to be.
once your name is confirmed you will be terminated from your position
1. stole social security number
2. went into tax returns
3. hacked into phones
4. hacked into computers
get ready for the ride your fking life
That's why they are posting crazy unrelated stuff here.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, YOU DON'T KNOW WHATS GOING ON...YOU DON'T KNOW A DAM THING....I DIDN'T USE THAT VERSION BECAUSE I KNEW I SCREWED IT UP...
T...GET HER OFF ME...
YET YOU HAVE TIME TO HACK IN WITHOUT KNOWING THE STORY....NO 3K STOOPID
If Kimmel were doing well he wudnt have to bully Leno. Jimmel has been a golden flop. Bring on Conan.
Yes I did. Then I laughed really hard when I saw you have a minimum wage job and still managed to owe the IRS $3,000 dollars. Dude, you need to go to a professional tax prep service. You filled out the 1040EZ all wrong.
i brought to boken..FATSO
We are watching you!
YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED..
The great Johnny Carson wanted David Letterman to replace him, not Leno! Also, you notice that Leno never takes a vacation, he doesn't want a replacement to be liked more than him. I used to watch him, many years ago, he has gotten meaner. I think he's past his prime. Letterman is great, makes real fun of himself, more of his colleagues like & respect him much better than Leno.
Really? Kimmel feels bad? I'm the one that feels bad; ever since Kimmel forced himself into the middle of what, before he showed up, was a perfectly good Sunday afternoon of NFL football coverage. Who does he know to have gotten that gig -being forced on a bunch of guys who acted (?) like they didn't want him around- and then to have gotten as far as he has? He is -hands down- not funny. From the beginning, instead of enough of this guy, we get more. Ugh..... I continue to change the channel away from this guy.
I recently watched an interview with David Letterman and he made the comment that "even when the show was bad, Johnny was great". I think Mr. Letterman has achieved the same status as his mentor and no longer feels the need to do outlandish stunts to attract viewers. He is relaxed and confident enough to allow his guests to take center stage and enjoy the ride.
kimmel iss a piece of sh-t...leno is the best in the busiess and so is david
Personelly I like Letterman but I'ts tough to knock Leno out of #1 spot. Those othet three, Letteramn Conan and the new guy, what ever his name is, are not having any success at it.
your this remember? 0000
never looked at one number
So Kimmel doesn't like Leno!!!!! I'd hate him to if I kept losing to him in the ratings. Try talent it may help.
I can't stand Leno either. He's not the least bit funny. When he tries to tell a joke, he'll keep repeating the punch line.
i never had an interest in her social..WHY
Kimmel isn't such a funny guy . . . it is all about the big money for all the late night comics. I do think Leno and his wife do a lot for charity . . . haven't heard that Kimmel does much . . . Letterman, a little and the red head Conan throws his support to helping others.
let's make that clear....david had nothing too do with it.
Leno is a tool.
This only means so much from the founder of The Man Show.
NO ONE TODAY compares to Johnny Carson, NO ONE! I would bet if they had reruns of Johnny on another channel he would beat out leno, letterman, conan and kimmel HANDS DOWN!
we could have - but always said let it go...your are the most hated right now and if were you kimmelS
i would keep my head down....because you smell pretty bad right now....how dare you hurt me in this
abusive way...who are you, do you have blood in your veins as a human being?
EVERYTHING MOVES ALONG LIKE NORMAL –
this is what represents the great david letterman....my god...
i never ONCE checked you out......YOUR A FAT LOW LIFE PIG.
IHa, ha, ha, ha....if Kimmel were right about Letterman or Leno, then Kimmel's and Letterman's ratings would be batter than Leno's, and they are not. Kimmel IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL, HE'S THE JOKE !!
I totally agree with you. JImmy Kimmel is as funny as an ingrown toenail! Funny when NBC went to layoff a bunch of people from the Tonight Show Jay gave up his raise......now does he have feeling's or doesn't he, you decide you wind bag........Jimmy you wanna know what I think YOU DO HAVE ACTUAL FEELINGS!
a disgrace to women - i never once ran a check on you...who do you think you are....WHO ARE YOU?
you as a man..this is what represents you?
i just received a fking call that somebody went into the system and checked my returns out....
who would do that to madonna
Kimmel is a jealous, whiney, lacking MORON. He'll never be as good as Leno, so he needs to STFU......NOW. ヅ
Jay Leno is the best comedian on TV, he was born funny, natural and the best at what he does but kimmel is a jealous idiot
i never checked her out...
i just word–let me guess....
is that so?
I don't even watch Kimmel when Leno is on. The fact of the matter is that Leno has much higher TV Ratings than Jimmy Kimmel, so you can start yelling "scoreboard, scoreboard" and Kimmel. I don't like Kimmel and will never watch him unless I'm forced to.
politically comedians have to give a bit of attention to both parties...don imus does the same thing one days he's republican one day he is democrat...that's show business.
to me they are the greatest in late night. i love david.
He admires Letterman? Really? I think Letterman's the least talented of the bunch. His Top Ten isn't funny. His interviews aren't good. His guest choices aren't that good. His monologues are okay. I laugh sometimes, I admit. But, I think he's the least funny of the bunch. I actually think Kimmel is very funny. I like Leno, Kimmel, Ferguson, and Fallon (some). But, I've never actually watched Kimmel's show. My opinion of him comes from what I've read of what he's said.
and what i have read also.
Kimmel is not funny, nor an entertainer. How much charity work has he done? Does he live off is stand up money ? ( if he does stand up) That he thinks Letterman is the 'father of comedy'is pretty telling right there. Jay has empathy- and is self effacing, something that Kimmel lacks. Would Kimmel have taken a pay cut in the hopes that some staffers would not lose their jobs? Don't think so. Carson had his good points- he was a stellar writer, gave a lot a people a shot on national TV- but was very insecure and a misogynist, but at least more affable than Jack Paar.
Something I like about Leno is that he's an equal opportunity comedian. He doesn't let people know what side he's on. If he's got a bias he doesn't let it show. Take politics for example. He'll make fun of whoever is in office. Is he a Republican? A Democrat? He makes fun of them both equally. You can't tell if he doesn't like the guy or if he knows the guy's good for comedy. Most of the others, especially Letterman, let you know what side they're on. They don't know how to keep a secret. They don't have that ability to be equal.
democrat and republican....that's show business and ratings...
Then why don't the other guys do it? Why can't they put their bias aside and just make jokes? Letterman has let it be known through his monologues and guest choices that he is very liberal. Leno, on the other hand, no one knows. He's equal. He knows how to bring the jokes so that he can make fun of a guy without you being able to tell if he likes or dislikes the guy. That, imo, is true comedy. It's not "I hate you, I hate you, so let me degrade you for laughs because people will laugh at things I, I mean they, hate." It's "there's something funny and I'm a comedian." He makes fun of NBC as well, but it's not in a "I wish I wasn't working here" way, it's in a "We're family and I'm gonna laugh at family" way. I appreciate that kind of humor much more.
Cancel Kimmel and Leno and move Craig Ferguson up in time slot. Late night only needs Letterman and Ferguson.
The one sane response here. Kimmel? Doesn't have it. Needs to get over it. It was Conan who got hurt. And Conan FAILED. Letterman, LOSING to Leno, and sour sour sour about it. For decades. Craig Ferguson? Flip, funny, compassionate and he has a funny accent. SCORE.
Kimmel should go back to The Man's Show where he belongs. He doesn't belong up with the Big Guys. Small time...
Is Kimmel serious? Kimmel is a vile piece of garbage. He is anti-women, anti-Christian. He mocks anything he doesn't agree with. He is right down in the cesspool with Bill Maher. And he dares to say is admires Letterman? At least Letterman and Leno and Jon Stewart and even Kimmel's old boss Ben stein hold respect for people they don't agree with.
Kimmel and his ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman are just foul.
lmao! anti-christian? who the hells cares? what does being christian have to go with being a good late night talk show host? got a clue for you pal.. there is NO God.. Christians and comedy don't mix
Funny that, coming from K. Of all the late night hosts – he reminds me most of Leno and Lenos;' style. I've thought that if K took over the Tonight
Show that there'd be virtually no difference in the show.
Sometimes the things people hate the most about others is the thing they themselves do.
I think Lenos' work has taken a nosedive since the Conan fiasco, it seems more crude, sometimes outright mean spirited. I'm no fan of Jimmys either. Letterman and Fallon are the best. In my time zone, Jimmy, Leno and Fergusson are on at the same time. L and K are making ferguson look pretty good. ;)
None of them measure up to Johnny Carson. End of discussion.
Fact: If you find Jay Leno funny, you aren't funny. This is why he gets high ratings. Most people are painfully unfunny.
Kimmels a bore.He whines worse then those kids he has deceived after Halloween. Give it bad boy, go hide under a rock and whine about your own incompetance
*snort* how ironic it is to misspell the word INCOMPETENCE. nice work, genius.
oh john boy can use a spell checker. wow, you must be a real smart puppy; or more likely you are more of a whiner then Jimmy
it was MRS. WEB
I tried to watch Kimmel's show once when he moved to the 11:30 slot, and I did not find it to be funny or entertaining at all. I switched back to Leno and never looked back. He can say what he wants about Leno, but it's only his opinion. It doesn't change the facts. I love Jay Leno.
In my opinion, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien shows are a lot better then Jimmy Kimmel. Hang in there though, when they all retire Jimmy Kimmel may have a shot !
1. dave (secret hunk o mania)
2. jay (funny)
3. fallon (looks better unkept)
could they be gay?
Looks like you have a reading problem. Now that's funny.
jay leno does not have to prove anything to anyone and certainly is NOT a tool....Kimmel is a nut
I don't know I've heard other people with that same opinion.
that is our opinion and that what we feel therefore we have a right to voice what we are feeling on this blog
And they have a right to voice theirs, as well.
Jay Leno is a tool, nowhere nearrr as funny as kimmel...
OK – you can stop with the jokes.
Leno took a big pay cut to save the jobs of his crew and Leno has one wife while Kimmel has had several wives and girlfriends. I guess Leno has no feelings.
A pay cut that was required because Leno wanted to return to the desk. Leno is a tool and a phony and everyone in the business seems to know it.
checking to see if my girdles are dry.
he saved jobs. please.
No one likes him Dave.
Jimmy didn't attack him...i agree he's jealous of Jay....David is still the man...
Dave's a left wing Liberal, Democrat suck-up, cheating nut job. So, keep watching that POS DB .....
appears jealous of jay...don't know why but he is.
how dare he make a remark like that to jay leno....jay only wants the best for his colleges...how dare jimmy act so jealous.
Kimmel sure is making himself look good, isn't he? NOT!
i adore david letterman and i especially think jay leno is the greatest in show business...jimmy kimmel iS a jerk and has not feeling for show business which proved that by being jealous of jay.
Seems like the majority of you posting have learning disabilities.
what the hell is with that hair!!!!!!!!!!!!! get up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kimmel gross and fallon with that elvis hairstyle...no way.....
Fallon is too clean cut...yuck!
kimmel is a jerk, fallon looks too clean...i like him dirty and that out all night look.
Kimmel is SO boring to watch. Without writers, he's not funny, just watch any interview or guest appearance. Worst of all, attacking Leno is proof of his intense feeling of inadequacy as a comedian.
there he is!!!
rrrrrrrrrr matey yes he iS
Jimmy Kimmel continues to show he is an idiot.
insulting the number 1 rated jay leno..go away
Kimmel...what a nut!
I've never liked that Leno's humor includes insulting people. I just plain don't like Jimmy Kimmel and don't know how he even "made it." Letterman is the late night KING!
I am always amazed at the myths that are created around reality. It is absolutely NOT true that Jay Leno bullied Conan out of a job. NBC saw the Tonight Show under Conan as a sinking ship and ASKED Jay to come back. In Hollywood, Jay is considered a nice guy and he gives a lot to charity and is kind and thoughtful to his guests. Notice how he goes out and shakes hands with his audience every night. He makes fun of himself and often dresses up like Johnny Carson did to join in a skit. He doesn't take himself too seriously and has never been involved in adulterous affairs, illegal drugs, mean-spirited attacks on people or altercations with the law.
like sands through the glass...so are the days of our lives–
No illegal drugs is a diss, not a compliment. Look at Bill Hicks and Carlin, two of the best comics ever! Jimmy is funny, but sadly most of his jokes are about the Bachelor and Dancing with the stars and other tripe that people with brains don't care about. His show is not relevant.
Scarecrowsangel said, "He [Jay Leno] makes fun of himself and often dresses up like Johnny Carson did to join in a skit."
Scarecrowsangel, I served with Johnny Carson. I knew Johnny Carson. Johnny Carson was a friend of mine. Scarecrowsangel, Leno is no Johnny Carson.
Jay is Jay....
@joe because wanting a comedian to not do drugs is so awful. :rolleyes:
Everyone knows that Kimmel is a POS DB.
What a blowhard. You don't see Leno walking around saying Kimmel doesn't have feelings, or is basically a grown up child (which is true) or is neurotic (which also appears to be true). I guess you don't want to cross Kimmel or he'll never let it go. Good example for the rest of us. Maybe he'd do well in Congress.
Could be because Kimmel has actual feelings.
Every time Kimmel opens his mouth about Leno, he proves himself to be a dick.
I will say that the Kimmel show taken over by Matt Damon, with Kimmel bound and gagged the entire show, was funny.
Every time Leno steps on stage he proves how much of a DB he is after kicking Conan off of the Tonight Show so he could take it back because he was a failure in the time slot he moved in to after leaving the Tonight Show.
@JB what about Conan? It was Leno's show before someone decided Conan needed to have his spot.
david interview a bunch of comedians...conan had to audition for his job. david saw conan and went after him.
Anyone who lumps Leno with Letterman would lump Larry the Cable Guy and Louis CK. Leno is a hack. A gifted and hard working hack but a hack none the less. Dave has been our gift these past 30 on years. He simply makes life better. Kimmel's respect for Dave is genuine and touching. One hopes he will grow as a performer as Dave did. In truth, Kimmel's lowered bar of Guillermo based humor appeals directly to Leno's demographic but he's young and perhaps someday he will aspire to be more? Hacks are made and not born. You settle on being a hack as the money or success is enough. Dave never settled, perhaps because he is odder than Jay but this oddness comforts and embellishes this life. If Jimmy aches to provide this gift to his demographic he should raise the bar and be more. Talking about is hackery.
Kimmell is just hurting his idiot self with comments like these.
So how many free shows across the country for charities/good causes (at his own expense) has Kimmel given, like Jay?
Leno is best-he never comments on Kimmbel/Letterman/etc, constant insecurities-They are not entertaining!!
yeah actually. they are .
Jay is and has been #1 ever since he took over for Johnny. Johnny gave Jay his start and knew how good he was and is. Conan's humor is so childish and Kimmel has no class or humor. Dave's okay when Jay has re-runs and Fallon is good and different. Top Three: Jay, Fallon, Dave
he's cute but i don't find him funny at all
they are the masters of late night
Jimmy Kimmel is right. Jay doesn't have any feelings because he has Aspergers Syndrome. If you know anything about AS, you will see that Jay displays all the characteristics.
*Dyslexia (Jay has often stated he has this)
*Obsessive on one/few particular subjects (automobiles)
*Lack of feelings (Jimmy is right on)
so what....alot of men love their wheels....
Yes, you're right – those are ALL the characteristics of AS.
You're an idiot ...
As someone who does help terminally ill children and children with all types of mental and physical disorders including autism and AS I can assure you people who have AS have feelings.. They are not totally immune to feelings.. they just don't have them the exact same way as people without AS.. You could say everyone has an issue with emotions and handling them that does not mean they are numb to others emotions. They just handle them differently.
Jockeying for pole position Jimmy?
Yeh, like Kimmel doesn't treat his Hispanic 'sidekick' like a clown and a butt of his jokes.
Jay could care less.
Kimmel is NOT funny. He truly is just not funny. Leno is not funny either, and comes across as a sycophant. Can't handle watching either, and I don't know how they got their jobs. Especially Kimmel. Conan and Letterman rule.
Kimmel should shut up and count his blessings because the reality is that he is no comedian.. He was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time. He cant stand up to any personality out there much less JL. I'll leave it at that because he is hardly woth commenting on.
hahaha over 50 much? Laughable.
David Letterman = Funny
Jay Leno = Funny
Conan O'Brien = Funny
Jimmy Kimmel = Funny
C'mon people these guys did not get to where thay are in the business by not being funny. We all have different tastes in comedy,music,etc. Personally I find Dave the funniest with Kimmell coming on strong. Entertainment is in the eyes of the entertained. Kimmell is just being honest and unless I missed something he is not questioning Leno's talent, he just doesn't like him.
You are Correct – If everyone agreed what was Best there would only be one Flavor of Ice-Cream or One brand of Cologne. I myself do not care for the way Leno – Smells or his Taste. It may be PARTLY his tacit expression of Political Views – He seems a disciple of the philosophy of AYN RAND (ALL Me – ALL The Time) and I think that is why his Peers do no Like him.
he forms his politics into a joke....its not real ..... its just a joke so he gets away with it.
leno proved himself to be classless when his prime time experiment of a show failed, failed, FAILED and he cried to the network to get his old job back. the TONIGHT SHOW has never been the same since. Letterman is a class act, in spite of his personal issues, and a consummate professional. leno is solely out for leno and no one else and he'll sneakily go through whomever he must to get what he wants.
that's not opinion. that's proven fact.
if jay is gonna getcha he will....kimmel go away
I find it downright funny that a bunch of people who wouldn't know comedy if it bit them in the butt, are defending Jay Leno and excoriating Jimmy Kimmel. Jealous much?
jay is warm...he had to have been pushed....jay is a very calm person
You are on crack. Clearly you have no idea of the history between ALL of these guys. There's a reason Conan, Kimmel and Dave all hate Leno.
That's rich coming from a guy that isn't the least bit funny.
Kimmel has all the charm of herpes, but without the warmth.
You left out the fact that Jimmy is funny as heck and Jay hasn't had a funny thought since 1987.
You haven't seen the show. If you think Jay is warm and funny then you should thank Letterman...since Jay simply copies everything from him. Why do all other hosts hate Leno? Think about it.
when she appears she sends david the jokes he says yes or no or they make changes... you don't show up at a show like leno, letterman or o'brien with approval of your material. geeze
how does one not know all scripts and jokes are approved by the president and anyone outside of their own show has too legally approve the jokes.....how do people not know this
You have absolutely no idea. You make yourself look like a fool by saying something like that.
how does one not know all scripts and jokes are approved by the president and anyone outside of their own show has too legally approve the jokes.....how do people no know this
this is show business.....that's how it works...the president knows the scripts already and approves it jay does not go out here and says what he wants on other shows or for the president it has too be approved first
kimmels sucks as far as i'm concerned and had no respect for jay....conan and letterman will blow him off also...
Sounds like the usual bunch of sour grapes. He can't win the ratings so he has to bad mouth someone. Seems it has a deep seated problem HE needs to resolve.
kc and lime videos too...we know...shut up
Kimmel must have done something for Jay to react that way....the 3 are friends in the business
you don't know conan, david or jay....
Leno actually made a joke about the Joke-In-Chief in the White House, so apparently the Hollywood Communist Association with 99% of the actors out there being members has decided to start an insult campaign. They should go after Letterman whose constant jokes and insults of Bush got the United States it's first communist Mslime president.
Thanks for leaving your opinion......so we can POOP ON IT!
A muslim communist , just goes to show how ignotanr you are
Wow. Please tell me you are being sarcastic! LOL! That is a joke right?
People with the word "logic" in their screen name almost always fail to use it. It's actually funnier to watch than Jay Leno.
Leno makes fun of both parties. He made fun of Clinton. He made fun of Bush. Obama's in office now so it's turn. It's nothing personal. Obama needs to grow some thicker skin.
Kimmel is great – and he'll shake up the 11:30 time slot.
Letterman showed his class by going on Kimmel when Kimmel hosted the show from NYC. The mutual respect was evident.
Leno hasn't been funny in years.. he's boring. I think Conan would agree that Leno lacks class.
Agree 1,000% to all your points.
The irony is that there was a day... yes, it was decades ago... where there was nobody funnier than Jay Leno. His appearances on Letterman in the 80s were epic.
Leno chased the cash and lost his class. Letterman, Conan and Kimmel are writers and comedians who host talk shows...Leno is a talk show host. Watching Leno now is like watching a bad, predictable 80s sitcom with a laugh track. You know what's coming, the jokes are bland and safe, the interview questions are delivered one after the other like an assembly line regardless of the guests' responses. He's the stoker shovelling vanilla humour into the minds of the elderly. In the end, he sold out and didn't behave like a man; THAT is what he will be remembered for.
letterman is number 1–i love that man–he's the funniest ever
you need to take more courses in broadcasting and tv
Kimmel is so embarrassing
gee i didn't figure that out .
Kimmel is jealous, Jay is the best.
are professionals all the way..they are NOT going to pay attention to Kimmel who is the worst in the business and should go back too school in the field of broadcasting
"should go back too school"...classic!
Except for the fact that Dave and Kimmel have a great deal of mutual respect, and they both HATE Jay.
he is the best like Jay Leno- kimmel is way low will never compete with Jay Leno's experience in the business.
thanks for wake up.
kimmel sucks as usual and jay leno is the king of comedy
the best in ny and hollywood
he is number 1 in the business like david letterman ... the best in the land...professional and always in top performance.
was looking at a video last night and guess who popped in.
is number one...kimmel is a first class loSer. imagine getting bed with him can't do it no way.
Leno is not funny, and never has been funny. He's a fat stuffed pig.
stop harrassing leno..
file it--its too funny now
is a jerk
I have met Jay Leno on two occasions. Decent down to earth guy, no entourage. Just a genuinely friendly person. Kimmel strikes me as a jerk and not half as funny as his old partner, Adam Corolla.
but david letterman is the funniest out of the three of them.....kimmel is not even in the top 10
Letterman is funniest? Hardly. Not since the 70's anyway. Letterman is as funny as a funeral.
he's number 1 in our books and the public adores him–
Leno beat Letterman every single night for 17 years. It wasn't until the whole Conan thing was over that Letterman ever got up on him. Something Letterman was unable to maintain. Leno is number one in his slot. He's still ahead of Jay and does nearly double what Kimmel does. I liked Letterman in the 80's but then again in the 80's i was in grade school...
Kimmel iS rude end of story....
he's the best since johnny carson!
and the public loves him too death!
too worry about jimmy kimmel because jimmy deserved it. jay does not react unless something truly happened.
jay does not like to fight by nature and will most likely ignore him...tip for jimmy: i would not push jay too far.
i love to see the show when i can. i work near the studio so we can pop in toosee the show whenever we want.
fan for life!!!!
and i agree that comments are not good for his future .....does leno care no... kimmel needs to be careful.
we love letterman...#1 fan
but is he funny? No.
bash mr.leno all you want mr.kimmel....mr. leno is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Really? Did you get a good look at the picture above. Jay is an old man. Talent aside, old men eventually die... sooner rather than later.
if kimmel doesn't keep quiet..leno will make sure he's out of the game....polish up kimmel and leave leno alone.
kimmel, you gotta watch it buddy.
your paranoid rants are starting to make Charlie Sheen look completely rational.
you need an intervention or something.
Who is Jimmy Kimmel? Seriously-who is he?
kimmel is basically not funny and has a big mouth...he made a huge with mistake with leno and now, letterman and o'brien won't look at him either...no doubt....that's the entertainment business.
leno is number 1 and in the business over 40 years...kimmel is buh bye if he doesn't stop the remarks.
is not going too deal with kimmel...so what did he accomplish by making that statement...zilch.
ratings could go down...lousy move on kimmel's part
there is a reason why leno did what he did...tell kimmel too put a sock in it and go polish his dumb jokes.
he needs to hang out with leno and learn the ropes....what happens now? letterman is going too ignore
kimmel and so is o'brien.....bad comment for kimmel he should have kept his mouth shut
leno is in the business over 40 years....he does not have too put up with Kimmel...Kimmel is not even in his league. Kimmel arrives on stage like we are suppose too be honored he's there and his jokes are flat. please....
the 3 masters do not compete anymore they are older–leno and letterman have had gigs together in the bars in ny
back in the 70's - no way...
fallon and kimmel are not funny. letterman is.
The Best in Late Night
i love too laugh and if you can't make me laugh that's a problem....
leno, letterman and o'brien have filled the shoes of the king johnny carson...the others out here are silly not funny.
the name of the game is the laughs in this business the 3 masters do it every single time.
Leno's jokes are a series of puns and groaners. I almost never laugh watching his monologue. The Headlines bit, on the other hand, is often funny...because it's not his original material.
leno, letterman and o'brien have filled the shoes of the king johnny carson...the others out here are silly not funny.
the name of the game is the laughs in this business and the 3 masters do it every single time.
i will keep typing until i am done....you do not own cnn..
He's the youngest of the other 2 masters in late night.....he keeps the same format and basically follows letterman all the way. conan once said leno and letterman are his mentors...he also keeps his professionalism in NY and the audience loves him....he is very friendly when you run into him..he has a great personality and appreciates you visiting the show. i don't know how many times he tells the audience how happy he is too see them.
Morning Meetings Like Leno: he stops into the writers, they clean up the jokes and out he goes...
he always seems nervous in the first few minutes..i've seen many interviews with him and all he has on his mind is
getting those laughs from the audience...as soon as the audience responds too him he flies!!! i've seen him 2 times
when he was much younger in NY–
his morning meetings: the cast writes the jokes and he approves and changes things around he is there for every meeting too go over jokes because he feels its his duty to make people laugh. that's his job. This is another master of late night and most of all he stays away from negativity and you do not see him very much on the hollywood scene..
i cannot tell you how many times we pass around the top 10's to start out the work day. david gets on stage and commands the audience. i've seen david a bunch of times so i'm aware of his technique. david is a very funny guy and well respected in New York as well as the industry. his technique is very dry yet, yet plays the ditzy routine but he know exactly what to do to get the laugh and he gets the laugh everytime...the master.
leno does his job and stays clear of negativity, same with letterman and o'brien...they are the real professionals of late night talk...not those other morons who are not funny at all.
Except Leno the bully, just boots people off the chair and demands his job back. I think he is flat not funny and full of hot air.
sorry deb...i respect your opinion but i disagree....leno(photo above) is not a bully, leno can say or do whatever he wants. that's why he's number 1. Kimmel (photo above) does not have the personality and who cares about jimmy kimmel..
leno is in the business over 40 years....he does not have too put up with Kimmel...Kimmel is not even in his league. Kimmel arrives on stage like we are suppose too be honored he's there and his jokes are flat. please....
the others are ridiculous
this is the entertainment business...you'll have to deal with it in order too get ratings
Nobody is drunk punkin.
Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Fallon are the only ones who actually seem to enjoy what they're doing at this moment in time. That kind of energy goes a long way. Letterman looks exhausted and Leno's shows are as manufactured as cans of soup. Which is sad because they were once very funny, and once was almost 30 years ago. They're all probably decent folk if you have a beer with them, except that Jimmy Kimmel guy. He seems like he'd be a mean drunk.
and nobody is moving....they are at peace for 1/2 hour day –
and nobody is moving....they are at peace for a 1/2 hour day –
You are correct sir. It might seem like a strange measure, but just the fact that Ferguson will ignore the producer when he's told a segment is running long, while Leno dutifully keeps to the pre-planned timing, is quite telling.
are not moving either they draw RATINGS and that's the name of the game in the entertainment business.
you don't know the entertainment business
I continue to hope and pray that Pat Sajak gets another TV talk late night talk show. He was better than anyone else.
Let's see, Leno has The Tonight Show at #1, but Conan demands his turn. Who else has ever demanded TTS be given to them? So NBC keeps both cash cows rolling by giving him TTS in 5 years. Leno leaves but doesn't die. Conan has to be told he can't do The M Bear at 10:30, which most would figure out on their own. NBC gives Leno 10pm. Both shows bomb & the affiliates threaten to drop TTS if something isn't done. They offer a split show which Conan of course refuses. Leno returns & TTS is # 1 again. Conan tried a coup and ultimately lost.
Letterman wants a better contract with CBS, so he starts courting ABC to make CBS nervous. ABC salivates. Ted Koppel foolishly demands a statement of support for Nightline. ABC refuses. Koppel resigns in humiillation but goes on Letterman so Dave can talk about how ABC did him wrong.
Meanwhile, Leno doesn't spend his TTS money, but lives off doing shows on the road and in Vegas. Has a steady marriage, loves cars. Letterman cheats on his wife with his own staffers, overuses depreciation humor, uses his kid as an entertainment device, and is compared to Will Rogers and wins the Kennedy Center honor.
Couldn't have said better myself. Jay is still the one; and right behind him is Fallon. There will be more whining when Fallon overtakings the whiners.
Well said. Not to mention Leno doesn't badmouth people and is a lot funnier than any of the others!
You guys don't remember Jack Paar and Steve Allen. They taught Johnny everything he knew. If i like a guest I'll watch any of them but not Leno so much because I can't stand his voice. I have a remarkable device called a DVR that letsa me skip their generally crappy monologues but my favorite talk show is Graham Norton. Five minutes after his show starts the guests.......ALL the guests......are on the couch. It's genius. One feels really fullfilled after one of his shows. The interaction between the host and guests is unlike anything on American TV. If you get BBC America, try it. they say things they never say on TV here.
bash it all you want...the business is staying.
wasn't bashing. my point was they would all be better if they reduced the half hour plus of crap before the guests came out. does anyone really tune in just to see the hosts? nobody i know does.
It was Jay Leno who took a huge paycut to save the jobs of his staff. What has little Jimmy ever done for anyone?
I've heard that Leno is a nice guy in person. He's spontaneous. He's not a charmer but he's down to earth.
Little Jimmy is so cheap he used his uncle until he passed away, and still uses the parking lot attendant, Geronimo.
Who is Kimmel?
That guy who's actually funny.
He's your daddy.
love leno can't get into nor do I understand letterman's popularity – leaves me utterly cold, don't find him at all funny = have never watched kimmel
Kimmel is the man which you most certainly are not.
Your've never sung a note in your life, you've never acted and your no a comedian...so where to get your analysis from.
Amazing junior high school bit these 'professional' Leno bashers have going. yawn
Jay must have something they desperately want or they wouldn't be trying to publicly bully him like this. Professionals? bah! It was stupid, then it was annoying, now it reeks of gratuitous cruelty. And not even a snicker's worth of funny.
Jay Leno is not funny and he comes across as phony. He's on his way out . . . it's just a matter of time.
what experience do you have in the entertainment business? just curious.
The quickest way to lose creditability!
Talk down someone else – rather than talking up yourself.
I know for a fact that Jimmy Nobody has zero talent. Another loud-mouthed ferengi.
Wow, that's funny. I know for a fact that Kimmel lacks talent so I guess that makes them even.
I'm trying to think of one major comedian that Jay hasn't ticked off or screwed over. Having a hard time doing it.
Conan.....and everyone else. TEAM COCO, B^TCHES!
Well, there's Conan, and then theres.....well...theres.....um.....someone im sure....Viva Conando!!! #TeamConan
Actually none of them. I recently cut the cable. Guess what, I love every second of it. I feel like a million bucks. I feel like – I was on death row and guard came up to my cell told me its all been one big mistake you are going home now – that's how I feel. Now I don't have to throw up while accidentally watching Kardashians, Donald Trump, Lohan, Catie Couric, Barbara Walters, MSNBC, Fox news, Matt Laur, Jersey Shore and late night TV. Last few months I read tons of books that I borrowed from public library. My brain cells are actually re-generating now. I love it and you will love it too if you give it a chance. Collectively lets kiss the bad TV goodbye.
they still have libraries? Can't believe you still read books. I haven't read an actual book in years. All my books, data files, information, music, videos, etc, are on Kindle, Netbooks, Notebooks, PC and cell phone. BTW, leave Katie Couric alone or I'll have to slap you upside the head. All the others you mentioned I couldn't care less about. Oh and Jimmy Fallon is cool.
Anyone who believes that Jay Leno is a high-character guy – or funny in the least – has no credibility in this discussion. AT ALL. I'm not fan of Kimmel, but calling him names is very Leno-like.
My god Kimmel you've been squawking about this for years. Get over it. You come across as a pathetic loser – maybe because that's what you are.
If you think Leno is funny, you don't know anything about comedy
This is so childish it is unreal! It just shows that ll the money in the world is not enough to make one content.
What the heck is wrong with Kimmel ? What a mean spirited thing to say about anyone, especially about a fellow comedian. It makes Kimmel sound jealous and petty. Every comedian makes their living making jokes about other people, most of the jokes being written by their writing teams. I don't watch much late night TV but I think Kimmel is the least funny out of the 3. Perhaps he won't be laughing so much when he is #3 out of the 3 in the 11:30 time slot. I don't recall hearing that "Kimmel" that took a 50% pay cut to help avoid having members of his TV team being laid-off. It was Leno. Leno must have some feeling after all ! (Yes, I know everyone says that Leno can afford it; but how many CEO's do you hear giving up 50% of their salaries to save jobs?). Kimmel is an a$$
Leno? Kimmel? Letterman?
Christ, I miss Johnny Carson and Craig Kilborn.
Damn... when did I get old?
I am so damn sick of hearing Jimmy Kimmel talk down about Jay Leno!! What the hell is wrong with him? I get there is a problem between them but alll he does is dwell on Jay...Let it go Jimmy!! Move on with your life for Gods sake!!
Howard Stern is his hero and Howard has had a big beef with Jay Leno since he poached Stuttering John from his show and ripped off several of his bits. Howard is also upset about how Jay took back The Tonight Show from Conan O'Brian. So if Howard Stern hates Jay Leno then Jimmy will too!
Come on Jimmy give it up. You keep coming off as a big time whiner, in my book you need some help with your reputation. I like Jay and his humor and have watched him since the carson days, but you were no where around at this point in time. The greatest comic in my opinion was Jonathan Winters, but hey to each our own. Your cool but, not like this.
And Kimmel has no sense of humor, he's not funny....
...The end is near...
Letterman, Leno, and Kimmel combined will never have 1/10th the talent of Colbert. The three of them belong on a cable network in Siberia (and take O'brien with them).
And Colbert will never have 1/10th the talent of Jon Stewart.
Anyone who thinks Conan isn't funny clearly has their head planted firmly up their own @ss...so congrats on pulling that off. You are a good poster on CNN...for me to poop on!
Jay hasn't really been funny ever since they let Eubanks leave & replaced him with that quiet guy. You could always coun on at least one laugh during a Leno/Eubanks sidebar in the monogenean. The guy they have now you just hear his annoying laugh and he contributes nothing because I suspect they know how unfunny he is, but gotta be diverse and inclusive even if it means lost ratings
I have actually met Jay in person and spent some time with him. You will not find a better person anywhere. Kimmel is just not as good as Jay,nor will he ever be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jay Leno is by far the best of those in this time slot - Letterman seems too full of himself, I specifically detest his long, gratuitous pause, like he's trying too hard to get a laugh. I don't agree with Kimmel at all!!!
Kimmel dislikes Leno because behind the scene he is really good friends with Howard Stern and idolizes him. Howard Stern hates Leno because he went behind his back and hired Stuttering John, a long time employee of Howard Stern and someone Howard Stern considered important to his show. Also Leno has for a while and even more so stolen a bunch of ideas and bits from the Howard Stern show, and acts as if he was the one who came up with these great ideas. Like the whole Jaywalking bit is a Howard Stern ripoff. This feud isn't new or news really, it's been known about for a long time.
Who really cares if ANYONE would hire "stuttering john" from another show.. Anyone know what ever happened to "stuttering John? the answer would be "NO"! Because he had no skills and could not sustain any career other than be a pathetic retard for howard.
I haven't watched the Tonight Show since Johnny left.....
All these comments prove the article: Americans are generally dumb and enjoy awful comedy– hence why so many people like Leno. Everyone's too dumb to appreciate the humor of Letterman and Kimmel.
You think the fact that most people are too stupid to understand smart humor is unique to the US? I highly doubt that.
Sure. America is just too dumb to appreciate the roll-on-the-floor humor in dropping objects from a rooftop or listening to Letterman reference the same line over and over and over during the show. America is too dumb to appreciate his parrot Paul laughing uproariously at every breath Dave takes.
sounds like sour grapes to me ...
really mature ! grow up ya big baby !
Yes, Kimmel keeps droning on about Leno. Please shut up.
Well, someone sounds like a whiny little hypocrite.... jimmy, is that you...
Kimmel, could it be that Leno being Number 1 in the ratings – and kicking your behind- all these years is your problem?
NBC kicked Leno out and brought in Conan but Conan's ratings tanked. (he's now on cable with ratings lower than Jon Stewart, Colbert and Chelsea Handler) So they brought back Leno and he's gone back to number 1.
I like Letterman too. But these late night comedy guys are simply unhappy that Leno has kicked their behinds for 20 years.
Yes, but Leno is funny and Jimmy is not, so no "hard feelings"
Kimmel needs to get out of high school and shut up. Every time he opens his mouth about Leno he just comes across as a baby. Let Conan fight his own fight and go back to being irrelevant.
because she just wants to be friendly she doesn't want to upstage the boss comedian at all....his audience is fun.
Kimmel, shut up. We heard you the first 12,000 times. Why are you so obsessed with Leno? Probably how you lost the weight, you spent time thinking of Leno instead of eating.
I don't get it either..sure sounds like someone's jealous of someone else's success.
shut up please
I personally like Jimmy Fallon best. However, I don't have a problem with Jay Leno. Jimmy K's show I only watch if they have a musical guest that I like. If so, then I tune in at the end to catch it. Otherwise, I just don't care for Kimmel. Until his show consistently draws more viewers than Leno, JK needs to shut it.
First off Jimmy Fallon is the best and MOST TALENTED out of them all. He is the guy you'd like to regularly hang with. With that said Kimmel (who I do like) should shut up about Leno, as he comes across like a whining P*s*y. For what reason? Leno's audience isn't his anyway.
Finally I'd rank them like this: Fallon, Letterman, Kimmel, Leno, Blank Screen, Conan
Kimmel? Who the heck is Kimmel? Give some guy his 15 minutes and he thinks he has talent. Leno may never be a Carson (no ever will) but he has class and is a pleasure to watch when he interacts with his guests...
you sound as whuny as kimmel waa waa waa
We all have our own taste in comedy. I actually like both Kimmel and Leno, even as different as they are. I do not enjoy Letterman that much and Conan even less. I don't blame Leno that Conan did not suceed and they asked him back or he wanted back. I think if Conan was doing great, Leno would not have been allowed back. That is just business. Kimmell has been awfully mean to Leno. I saw Kimmell on Leno's show once (before he switched back) and Kimmel took a cheap shot at Leno then. I thougt that he (kimmel) should hav elaid it tio rest then, but everytime he's asked, he just let Leno have it. He does not have to answer when asked about it. That's just a poor excuse. Last I checked, Leno was still getting the best ratings of the bunch and Conan.. well he certainly is not on the welfare line. Maybe, Kimmel is just a tad jealous og Leno's success.
without speaking to a soul..she is safe with him there and away from the nuts of yn...lol.
I only watch Craig Ferguson... if I'm up that late.
It's amazing how many people in entertainment are jealous of Leno.
David Letterman is the Johnny Carson of the next generation. Leno is a pretender.
No way. Leno has class. Kimmel is okay, but all this hate toward Leno is misdirected. Conan's weird humor just doesn't appeal to a wide enough audience. He's okay – but sometimes his humor is too juvenile.
Carson was unique. Craig Ferguson is the most talented and naturally funny – a bit frenetic. Carson was not trying to be funny all the time – his interviews were interesting, because he was very intelligent. Carson's skits were hilarious – nobody comes close. It's a shame that was lost when the torch was passed to Leno – likely because he doesn't have that type of talent. Leno is the true gentleman of the bunch – he's a hard worker, and a genuinely nice guy. That's why America watches him in droves.
Wow, Leno's gaggle of knuckle-dragging ninnies are out in force. There is a reason why Leno is so widely disliked in his business. He is well-known as an egocentric, shallow person who uses people without a second thought about the effect his actions has upon them. His narcissism is legendary–not uncommon in show business–but his disregard for others is even greater. He appeals to an audience of people who do not think, or cannot think. To them, I say, enjoy him all you want, but do not think "the Chin" is a jovial funny man. Jay Leno is the Ty Cobb of late night television.
Leno, consistently the highest rated show despite being on the lowest rated network, does everything he can to make his guests shine. He always takes a back seat and acts as second banana.
Howard Stern has been saying this about Leno for years. Leno is a very strange person and seems to possess symptoms of a personality disorder.
oh that's a reliable source....lol....
and you know Leno personally to know all these bad things about him, right? Gimme a break. We all know what we see on TV and nothing else. It's a business and the guy with the best ratings will get the best deal. I heard that Leno is a car fanatic and that he and his wife are very generous people. I will believe that is correct because I have no reason to disbelieve. I have seen true sincere emotion of Leno at a recent funeral service for a fallen star and I was moved by it. I am not saying that Kimmel, Leterman or Conan are also not the same. It's just that we know so little about these people in real life.
you don't know anything about anything you and jimmy the jackas- need to both be quiet
he wants to hear the person talk...he wants too make them feel like what they are saying to him means something too him.
Leno is about as funny as George W. Bush.
Hold on there! I think GW Bush Or "W" as I know him was a pretty dang funny guy, as long as he was out of the WH!
The dang fool was a master at comedy. His English wasn't too good and his demeanor was almost iinebriated or high!
He reminded me of the Stooges...all three of them. C'mon, let's give credit where credit is due! He looked a little like
Alfred E Newman from MAD magazine. The man belongs on the stage....the one that's leaving in a few minutes.
she's calm when he's on the stage.
Ever notice how much of Leno's humor is him making other people look stupid? Jay-walking is a typical example. Leno likes to do that. I guess it makes him feel smart. Then, notice that none of the other late-night hosts do that. Kimmel, Letterman, Conan, etc. are all a lot more kind than Leno.
Conan loves to talk over guestss so that the show can be all about "me, me, me". He's always trying to insert himself into the conversation with guests. Leno, on the other hand, does his best to make the guests look good and puts himself second.
What about when Kimmel challenges his audience to play tricks on their own kids? Yeah, nothing mean about making kids cry so the parents can film them and possibly get on the air. You're right, nothing mean there.
Kimmel doesn't strike me as a very intelligent person to begin with; Letterman is just mean. Wouldn't worry much about somebody who gets owned on his own show by Matt Damon.....
that is EXACTLY what happened...a teek problem...we call they come over...now please stop–
Leno is a class act and I watch him in preference to other late night comedians. Leno is funny, fearless, current, and maintained his dignity through that whole Conan fiasco. When Leno was on early I was glad to watch him at that hour. When he was returned to 10:30, I watch him then. He provides a painless way to unwind from the stresses of the day. You want to relax at that hour, and the edginess of the other comedians just doesn't do it for me.
Jay Leno is current??? I think the last time I saw Leno was in about 2000. He did both a Judge Ito joke and a "Pardon me but do you have any Grey Poupon?" joke. Maybe he has cleared the backlog of current material or skipped 2000-2010 since then.
Kimmel is funny. Leno never has been. What's there to say beyond that?
It's all a matter of taste. Personally I think of the four big guys, Leno, Letterman Conan and Kinnel, Kimmel comes in a distant fourth. The top three are, in order of my preference; Leno Letterman and Conan.I think-Kimmel-sucks as comedian. But then that's just my opinion. You have yours, I have mine.
Why does Kimmel hate Leno so bad; because Conan couldn't make The Tonight Show work, so they asked Leno back to save it? Kimmel is a dirt-bag.
Actually, it was Leno that couldn't make it work with his previous new show 'The Jay Leno Show'. The ratings drop had domino effect for all shows after the 10:30 time slot. Look it up.
WITH REAL PROBLEM SHUT UP..
THAT IS THE TRUTH...
stop it moron...this is madonna's life..screen issues.
kimmel saying something like that tells who has feelings and who doesn't. i've never heard leno trash Kimmel
Jimmy should change his diaper before making comments about Jay...I would be irritated too, if I sat in my soiled rags all day then performed an interview with playboy. Feelings or not (who gives a sh#!) Jay is a damn funny guy! Keep it up bud.
I feel bad fo Leno. I thought Kimmel was smarter than saying something like that. The ratings told the story. Someone did mention Conan. I think Conan is more natirally funny than them all. Letterman is Ok some nights
she cares for him...now please stop....
They'll all good comedians in their own way. I think Kimmel is just jealous because his star doesn't shine anywhere near as bright as Leno's. Letterman and Conan are close, but Kimmel has a long way to go before he can stand shoulder to shoulder with the three of them.
whatever he is curious about he will get the answer...whatever she is curious about she probably won't ever ask him until he tells her....
Jay Leno has never been funny and I'm glad most comedians still have Conan's back. Jay Leno is for the old white people who need to step aside and let the young take over.Anyway, I think what Kimmel said was hilarious and apt.
Another racist. Olsd white people have carried you and tyyour family for years. You will be old if your lucky and not killed for being racist.
You keep using that word. I dont think it means what you think it means. Just saying.
OBVIOUSLY, Jimmy is jealous. Take the HIGH ROAD Jimmy will ya? You're a BRAT! There's room for all of ya'll.
who is jay leno
maybe your dad.............. do you have a huge chin?
jay leno is hilarious
Isn't there a story about a kettle that applies to this story? I mean to say someone has no feelings, then excoriate them on a public forum only proves the inverse. sheesh!
Oh Johnny Carson, I miss you SO much.
YUP so do I........I would watch reruns of Johnny Carson if they had them on HE was that good, God broke the mold when they made him!
“I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings.”
I don't believe Kimmel has any actual talent.
Loved katy perrys dress at grammy awards!
yep he sure is...
or the one you like "dark" chocolate - come in next time..i'll put a pot of coffee on ...geeze....
Shut Up, Enough is enough, Everytime you open your mouth and say something mean spirited, it reflect on your upbringing and makes your parents lose their 'face value' which is more important than money. So be nice, Jay has not say or done anything mean to you,
I agree. People who say mean things smell worse than worst bowel movement of a camel that has feasted on prunes for two weeks.
Agreed, thet tells who's the nicest.
Jimmy's monologue is a steal from Talk Soup. What's original about that?
I've been working and working today and have gotten lots done. It makes me feel happy like. We hope you are having a good day.
i agree with you too
I'm very very unfunny : ). RRRRRRRR : ) I'm a pirate. RRRRRRR.
I agree w Kimball. Not a fan of leno. Just not funny to me. All the others ok with Conan being best to me.
"I agree with Kimball"
Do you agree with Kimmel too?
Who took a dump in my bed?
Letterman appears very funny
I like them both, but if ask to compare on this subject I have to tell you there is none. Kimmel is not even on the field when it comes to Leno concerning "feelings" for our military. I pay close attention to comedians and how they support our troops with Bob Hope setting the standard for all comedians to follow. Jimmy Kimmel does NOTHING. Seriously he is a complete MIA when it comes to showing his feelings for our troops. Jay Leno does more in a week than Kimmel has done in a lifetime. So, on the subject of "Feelings" Kimmel doesn't have a towel to cry on.
Kimmel is at least original, unlike Leno who steals his bits from Howard stern. Not really a fan on any of them except Conan he got the raw deal by Leno and NBC.
Yeah, he got a raw deal. He forced Leno out, then when his ratings tanked he got fired.
Sounds like a raw deal to me.
@derp when u have such a terrible lead in as Leno people don't stick around
Leno was around and was funny before Stern even was famous. leno's ratings had beaten Lettermans and Conans.
No one is as unfunny as David Letterman.
I am. I'm pretty unfunny : )
they may be tricking the public because they know they are there.
Why is it okay for these so called comedians to be bashing each other??? What a sad state society has become when they start talking dirt about someone else. Says alot about the person doing it.
Yeah. They shouldn't say bad things about others. They seem like trashy filth that wallow in sewer water. And they seem dumb.
very true bill....
who cares? they're just trying to stay on top, successful or not.
90% is verbal in tern the comedian takes notes and the head comedian polishes it up for evening performance.
what's with all these loser comedians (who are luckier than funny) always hating on Jay Leno. He is way better than you guys so just suck it up and move on. Perhaps if Jimmy Kimmel could be funny even once he wouldn't have time to be hating on other comedians. He and Conan are so boring. Geez.
Leno lost whatever comedian skills he had years ago. That much was evident after he left the tonight show. I'm not that big of a J.K. fan, but I won't watch the Tonight show since Jay came back. Anything thats funny on there is 100% the writers.
and most likely FAT...go make me a sandwich!
that's not how it works....the staff writes the jokes and the head comedian approves and then head too his performance...that is how its done in the entertainment business and pretty much all businesses.
Leno sucks. He can't interview anyone. It always comes off stiff and awkward. And Conan can go home. He's stupid
Yeah, since Johnny is gone there isn't one who could come close.
And I am certain they are all crying because "you" don't "watch them anymore.............. boo hoo!
Kimmel should just shut up. He comes across as small and ugly. And, he is not funny. He should take a lesson. If this is all about his defense of Conan, well, he's not funny either. Both of them do their comedy by just being silly which I do not consider comedy. And Letterman? He defined being mean. It is only in recent years he has begun to mellow. So grow up Kimmel. And go back to 12:05. I prefer Nightline.
Silliness is great comedy. It's better than insulting others you dirty but wipe. I bet you are so fat and stupid and ugly you always insult other people. Nincompoooop.
When any late night comedian is asked about his heroes and the first thing out of his mouth *isn't * "Johnny Carson," you begin to understand why he's a crashing bore.
its not deanie
Jay's still No. 1. Gee, wonder why? Because he doesn't spew venom like you and Letterman. Get over yourselves.
Anyone that spews venom is just hateful and dumb. I hate people that do that. They are trash and evil bottom dwellers.
is a funny word
What in the world did Sarah Silverman see in him? He's not very smart, nor handsome. He's fat and obnoxious, IMO. Adam Carolla was the "smart one" on their show, which was squarely aimed at the pubescent male audience. Maybe Sarah has a thing for guys who act like 13yr olds. While I think she's smart, pretty, and often, very funny, she appears to suffer from an arrested maturity development. She always takes it one step too far, just like a teenager who hasn't learned "boundaries." Come to think of it, they both do. Maybe they do belong together. Let's all just pray they don't breed!
Get out from under that rock!
My grandmother had it right... best advice to live by... if you can't say something nice...

Someone should ask Kimmel if he'd care for a saucer of milk. Meow!
letterman is my favorite
Kimmel is a joke.
Not a funny man. Just does silly things.
Without Adam Carrola his early work never gets noticed.
Not shocking to bad mouth Leno ( that's the cool thing right now), what would be shocking is to bad mouth letterman and tout Leno.
Kimmel needs a history lesson if he thinks letterman is not just doing a meaner version of Carson.
Kimmel how's it going with picking a non Native American Hispanic and making fun of his second language skills.
That's some brilliant comedy.
Snarky makes its own decisions and what is right for the network. knows her "departments" a quite well.
Yeh, but snarky loses every time in the end.
People will remember gracious comedians like Johnny Carson far longer than they will remember these in-fighters for a time slot.
