Jimmy Kimmel Rips Jay Leno a New One!

January 15, 2010 by  

This is getting good.  In the latest battle of the late night wars, Jimmy Kimmel took a side…and in a huge way. Hell, after what he did last night, Kimmel might be named Captain of Team Coco.  Check out what Jimmy had to say when he was a guest on The Jay Leno Show. And be sure to pay attention at the uncomfortable shuffling of the audience as he relentlessly bashed Jay. All in good fun of course…right?

  • [Asked by Leno what the best prank he ever pulled was] “The best prank I ever pulled was I told a guy that—five years from now—I’m gonna give you my show. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him, and then I took it back almost instantly.”
  • [Asked by Leno if he ever orders anything off of the TV] “Like NBC ordered your show off the TV?”
  • [Asked by Leno what the record is for number of lap dances he’s received in one night] “Strippers, I don’t like in general. Because you have this phony relationship with them for money, similar to that of when you and Conan were on The Tonight Show together, passing the torch… you know what I’m saying.”
  • [Asked by Leno what he hasn’t yet hosted, but would like to] “Oh, this is a trick, right? Where you get me to host The Tonight Show and then take it back from me?”
  • [Asked why he came on to do the segment] “Listen, Jay, Conan and I have children—all you have to take care of is cars. I mean, we have lives to lead here. You’ve got $800 million, for God’s sakes—leave our shows alone.”

    Jimmy Kimmel is a true American hero. TEAM CONAN.

    Video made my day. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is anything anyone can do or say because NBC seems to love Jay, which means Conan’s already gone.

    That was soooo good. The best part is that Jay never has anything to say back, because he is really only capable of reading what’s on the cue cards. Team Coco all the way!
