Between 20 and 25 employees lost their jobs at the late-night talk show last month, but the bloodbath could have been a lot worse because Leno gave up $15 million for the people working behind the scenes!
Despite the harsh treatment from his employers, however, the comedian has extended his contract to run through 2014.
Stern, one of Leno's biggest critics, had said that his "bullshit meter is going off all over the place" after he heard the television personality took a pay cut for his staff's jobs. It looks like that meter isn't always reliable!
Do U think the America's Got Talent judge will offer up an apology?
We don't either. Ha!
