Jimmy Kimmel Still Isn't A Jay Leno Fan!! And Here's Why!!

jimmy kimmel jay leno still hates no respect throws shade late night tv

Well, it's been a few weeks since we last heard what Jimmy Kimmel thinks of Jay Leno, and we have an important update for you guys:


LOLz! It's true! Jimmy is still throwing shade at Jay, mainly at his alleged lack of human feelings!

Here's what he said:

“I always feel bad if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn’t seem to be that worried about other people’s feelings.”

Then, in the interview, he talked about how much fun he had doing his Jay Leno impression, including the dumbed-down monologue, back when the whole Leno/Conan fiasco happened:

“I have a filter mechanism in my head every night when I put together the monologue for our show: If I can imagine Jay Leno telling a joke, then I won’t do it, even if it’s a good joke. There are three ways he does a joke, every single time, always with the same rhythm.”

Burrrrrrrn! He continued:

“The more I thought about it the madder it made me. I didn’t want him to just get away scot-free with what was happening all over again. Keep in mind this was the second time he’d done this. The first time, he’d elbowed Dave out of the Tonight Show gig, and now he’d done it to Conan. I felt there had to be some kind of comeuppance — not that I knew I’d do what I did."

Things weren't ALL negative, though, as Jimmy did slip him this compliment:

“I haven’t met anyone who knows more than he does about how ratings and the business of late-night television work.”

Listen, we all know what he did to Conan was jacked up. We also know, however, that he can't host the show FOREVER!

Especially if he's claiming he's not afraid of Jimmy… and then getting beat in the ratings!

    You don't raise yourself up when you put another man down.

    I can see taking sides in that feud, although the rest of us are over it, but he's criticizing his talent too, and Jay is talented.

    Jay Leno is the greatest talent of all and very frankly Kimmel did better in his old slot later for now his audience is checking him out. He is lousy in this time slot compared to Leno who we love best and even Letterman. Kimmel will be way down soon. Know we all wanted to see him but now we have and he's a dud in this hour … he should just shut up. Conan was a horror story and Jimmy Fallon is a star. Kimmel now is soon going to be in trouble for he won't be able to deliver the same dialogue he was used to in his old time zone. His new show sucks !!! Watch his ratings go DOWN

    Howard Stern knew all of this about Jay years ago. The rest of the people who bring it up, like Letterman and Kimmel, are good friends of Howard. Howard's pretty smart.

    Jimmy's ratings must be down, so he has to turn to tactics that might get him a little publicity. Leno did nothing, when it came to the Conan deal…………..IT WAS THE NETWORK!!!!!

    finally someone who shares my feelings about leno! i just feel like he's SO mean and he thinks he's hilarious. i feel bad for his audience, they do this fake laugh every time he talks. they just want to see the celebrity guests.

    I'm not Leno fan, but I can't stand when celebs make a big deal about insulting their competition. If Kimmel thinks he's so much better, let the ratings prove it. What happened with Conan was horrible but its history and Kimmel just sounds pathetic still bitching about everything. Of course besides a few skits, Kimmel isn't all that funny so…

    He's really starting to sound like Conan. I imagine he's bringing this up again to boost his ratings. Time to get over it. Move on.

    Jimmy is not the only one. Jay is very hated amongst comics and most don't stick by his decision to stay on and kick Conan off. I've never been a fan of Leno I prefer Dave for his wittiness and Conan and Kimmel for their comedy. Jay Leno just sucks in my opinion.

    Kimmel should just move on.

    Re: netopia – If he sucks that bad why does NBC keep him on???? Must be the rating huh?

  13. bjsmith says – reply to this


    I think Jimmy kimmel should stop talking about Jay Leno. I think Jay is a better comedian than Jimmy. So shut Jimmy.

    Jimmy has a serious issue with Jay that he needs to get over. It is like he wants to be Jay or somehting. Everytime I hear or see a post that Jimmy is talking bad about Jay I just roll my eyes….Jimmy… we are over this story get it together.

    Well I usually cannot stay up long enough to watch either show, but I do like Jay Leno.
    Saw him about 5 years ago at the Comedy and Magic Show in Hermosa Beach, CA. But check their schedule to make sure he is not on vacation. He is really funny and likes to try out new jokes and material there.
