Kimmel destroys Leno in front of Leno
In what Leno's people must have thought would be a savvy booking (and it appears to have worked since this is the first time we've chosen to embed a clip from the now-cancelled "Jay Leno Show" on Channel Surfing), the ABC host gleefully answered questions during Leno's "10 at 10" segment.
While we're not huge fans of Kimmel, he earned our respect last night by staying firmly in Conan O'Brien's corner as Mr. Big Jaw lobbed lame questions his way via satellite. After all, it's easy to do a scathing impression of Leno in front of your audience, but to go after Leno on his home turf took a certain amount of stones. Also, while Leno has justifiably been vilified for pulling a Favre on our beloved Coco, to his credit, he was a good sport on air.
But really, what could he do as Kimmel eviscerated him about the NBC situation? Be funny in return?
Yeah, that's what we thought.
