David Letterman Takes Aim at Leno
David Letterman is definitely team Coco.
The comedian slammed Jay Leno's return to the "Tonight Show" in a promo spoof, where he knocked Leno for stealing bits from "Late Night" and Howard Stern.
Letterman also described Leno's Tuesday night commentary, in which he told people not to blame Conan O'Brien for the "Tonight Show" drama, as "Vintage Jay."
"He said we should not blame Conan for what's going on," said Letterman. "And I said to myself, 'No one is blaming Conan.'"
Letterman jokes, "I'm begging you, ladies and gentleman, on behalf of everyone involved, please don't blame Conan. I know a lot of you people think that Conan pushed himself out of a job... he's not that kind of guy."
He continues, "In the thousands and thousands of words that have been printed about this mess, who has blamed Conan? No one... no one has blamed Conan!"
David ended his monologue by telling Leno, "You get fired, get another gig! Don't hang around waiting for somebody to drop dead."
