We don't think he has really any business commenting on this.

Jay Leno has spoken out about Conan O'Brien's new late-night talk show on TBS - despite being the sole reason the giant ginge was out of a job in the first place.

Leno says:

“I knew he’d land on his feet. It’ll be fun. Everybody will compete, 11 o’clock is now the most exciting place to be. I think he’ll be great. He’s a very funny guy. I didn’t know what to think. I mean, well, FOX is network but they have cable too, so, you know, it’s all sort of the same now. Everybody sort of reaches the same thing, but I think it’s exciting. I think he’ll do well."

Yeah, we're glad you had no problem going back on your word, because you knew 'he'd land on his feet.' We're sure he appreciated your putting his neck on the line!

    The original DICK is CONAN. Jay never wanted to retire. He was FORCED because of CONAN telling NBC he wouldn't resign unless he was guaranteed the Tonight show in a short period of time. Conan knew when he gave that ultimatum he'd be forcing out Leno. I don't feel the least bit sorry for that sorry piece of shit Conan acting like this is somehow Leno's fault.

    Would Jay stfu about "competing"? Jesus louisus.



  3. 3

    THE POINT IS–CONAN ISNT FUNNY AND SO NOBODY WATCHED HIS SHOW. NBC IS A BUSINESS AND THEY NEED TO MAKE MONEY, SO THEY FIRED CONAN AND REHIRED THE GUY WHO WAS NUMBER 1 IN THE RATINGS. ITS THAT SIMPLE. IF YOU DO A BAD JOB YOU GET FIRED, SORRY CONAN!!!



  4. 4

    Jay Leno didn't get rid of Conan, NBC did. I still don't get how this is his fault. Conan couldn't get the ratings which is why he is no longer employed at NBC! DUH!



  5. 5

    WATCH WHEN CONANS SHOW COMES ON AND COMPETES AGAINST LENO DIRECTLY, IT WILL HAVE HORRIBLE RATINGS



  6. 6

    jay leno is so hilarious. i just wish he doesn't retire ANYTIME SOON.
    i miss his old shows now he's stuff isn't as good as it used to be

    COME BACK JAY!!!!!



  7. 7

    If Jay is such a dick, than why isn't he in your ass right now??



  8. 8

    oh whatever perez - we all know that jay was forced to leave the tonight show. besides, how is it jay's fault that conan had bad ratings? i dont feel sorry for conan at all - nbc paid him a RIDICULOUS amount of money, he should be happy and shut up! move on to something that is actually current!



  9. 9

    ok
    everyone who just commented ahead of this work for leno or maybe they are he

    go team CONAN
    i will NEVER watch leno (not that I did much before)
    coco all the way!!!



  10. 10

    to whoever is writing these post on perezhilton.com. you suck, learn to write before you post. you are one big idiot, everything has errors except what you don't cut and paste. even that you tend to fuck up at times.



  11. 11

    wow. could you clowns be sucking jay's cock any harder? jay leno is NOT funny. oh yeah, i forgot what site i'm on. of course, you are sucking his cock.



  12. 12

    i love all the leno trolls. it doesn't take a very high IQ to appreciate the Chin's "jokes." y'all old farts can have him. Team Coco all the way and the ratings at TBS are going to SOAR!



  13. 13

    "he'd on his feet"

    It's good to see that the illiterate can still get work.



  14. 14

    Re: DonnieTaint – LMAO



  15. 15

    Jay was totally gracious! Don't twist his words around, he wishes Conan well! TEAM JAY!!



  16. 16

    Your analysis ofteh Late Night soap opera is a MAJOR FAIL, Perez.
    .
    Conan threatened to leave, back in the day, so NBC promised him Leno's job to get him to stay. Leno graciously stepped aside last year. Conan did not pull it off, so NBC put in the guy whose job Conan grabbed — the guy who had (and has) stellar ratings.
    .
    All the whining from "team coco" is out of proportion and off base. I don't see them complaining about Conan bumping Geirge Lopez to mignight. Natch.



  17. 17

    When will those network execs ever get the hint that most people fucking hate Conan! Why do they waste money on that unfunny ugly bore.



  18. 18

    He's sounding a bit sheepish.



  19. 19

    How does wanting to keep the show he had for years make Jay a greedy douchebag? Why should he be forced out of the show he loved and made successful? How would you like to be forced out of your job by someone younger? That was a terrible thing NBC did to Jay, like they were saying he was too old to have the Tonight show. Like you get to a certain age and you have to step aside for someone younger. Hope that never happens to YOU, Mario. Have some respect for seniority. I have nothing against Conan, I liked his show, but I'm glad Jay has his show back. The whole thing was a travesty, and NBC should be ashamed of itself.

    Why does Jay Leno ALWAYS wear denim on denim?



  21. 21

    JAY IS A TOTAL TOOL…
    ALL HE CARES ABOUT ARE HIS CARS AND WIFE…
    DON'T BLAME HIM….
    HES A SIMPLETON….HES TOLD WHAT TO DO TO KEEP HIS LIFE HAPPY FOR HIM…
    NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT…BLAME NBC FIRST….

    Re: DonnieTaint
    HAAAAAAA
    HAAAAAAAA
    HAAAAAAAAA THATS FUNNY AS SHIT……….LOL



  23. 23

    Jay Leno pretends to be so nice and mild mannered. Don't turn your back on this guy though as a knife will appear so fast you will not know what hit you!

    does it bother you that you now get more negative feedback than positive? seriously dude.. beaking celebrities for a living, super classy



  26. 26

    OMG give it a rest with the Leno bashing. Rating count for every in tv land. Judging by Leno's ratings (#1 in the time slot - again beating Letterman) NBC did what was good for the bottom line. Conan sucked in the time slot, Letterman was winning - NBC wanted to reclaim the revenue lost with Conan. Get off Leno's back find something else to bitch and whine about.



  27. 27

    Being a Bill Hicks fan, I haveZERO for Lenos' canned jokes…oftentimes direct rip-offs of other comics I've seen over the years,. Whereas, Conan is original and fresh..something Leno OBVIOUSLY has no cajones to pull off.

    Bill Hicks' skit about Jay Leno sucking Satan's cock and being off the artistic Roll Call, combined with Howard Stern, and countless others in the comedy industry, makes you see the true fire from all their smoke. conclusion:Leno is a POSER.

    TEAM COCO.



  28. 28

    souless prick.. JAY LENO-deininition of jerkoff



  29. 29

    team jay



  30. 30

    I don't watch his show but I know Jay is NOT the bad guy here. He was forced out of his job by an arrogant prick who has wrong idea he's funny. Have you every watched Conan? He's not funny and his major ratings fail proved it. I hope all this Conan talk ends once he fails on TBS. I'm sick of Conan's ugly face.

  31. @v@ says – reply to this


    31

    Yeah, and Conan didn't bump someone else back in their time slot. Except that someone was gracious, let it roll off, stuffed his ego, and strove to be copacetic.
    Jay is back, and he shouldn't have been gone in the first place.

    Re: guiltypleazure

    They both suck!

    I'm pretty sure Bill Hicks would tell you to shut the fuck up. Seriously, you're arguing over which hack is funnier.

    "Here it is, right here. "I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs." "I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking." "Hey, wait a minute, there's one guy holding out both puppets!" "Shut up! Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control. Here's Love Connection. Watch this and get fat and stupid. By the way, keep drinking beer, you fucking morons."



  33. 33

    PEREZ STOP COMING DOWN ON JAY LENO. CONAN DIDN'T BRING IN THE NUMBERS CAUSE HE IS NOT FUNNY. JAY CAME BACK AND IS NUMBER ONE AGAIN WITH THE HIGHEST RATINGS OF ALL THE TALK SHOWS. KEEP OFF HIS F'IN BACK.



  34. 34

    Get your facts straight!!!!!!!! The only change NBC wanted to make was start Conan's show a half hour later. Conan said no dice. It's nobody's fault but his own.



  35. 35

    Perez, you have a mean spirited heart. Jay's comments were very complimentary and you try to twist them ti suit you own warped mind. Not everything can go your way.



  36. 36

    Conan sucks, Jay ftw.



  37. 37

    WUT THA FAWK?!!? Who are you people? All Jay does is talk about himself! Anytime he interviews celebrities he says, "Haha, I remember when I…..blah blah blah" Just watch how he always talks about himself! Conan is so quick and funny! Jay just makes fun of people. He is boring, old and only knows how to crack jokes at other people's expense. Conan is creative, talented, and unique! I am going to pray that Conan's show blows Jay out of the water. I HATE Jay Leno and think he is a pompous ass. All of you who think he is so funny, must be total LOSERS!! Team Conan ALL THE WAY!!! Bunch a foooooools…
