David Letterman Doesn't Believe Jay Leno's REALLY Retiring

Sounds like someone is still just a bit bitter.

David Letterman lost out to Jay Leno for the hosting spot on Tonight Show way back when and it appears he doesn't have very much faith his retiring competitor is ACTUALLY retiring for good!

In his Wednesday night monologue on The Late Show, David wished Jay "congratulations" on his retirement and a "job well done"…kind of.

The veteran late night host said:

"Now earlier today, NBC announced that Jimmy Fallon will take over for Jay Leno as host of the Tonight Show in February of 2014. This is…something's wrong here. This happened once before with Conan O'Brien, and then they had to bring Jay back, and so he had to start his show all over again, and now it looks like the same thing is happening. And I just–I don't get this. He's retiring, so it says, and good for him. I've known him 38 years. I've known Jay Leno for 38 years…so now he's out again, but going out on top."

Hmmmm..

But Jay himself said that this time is FOR REAL and not anything like what went down with Conan O'Brien.

As a friend of 28 years, he should give him the benefit of the doubt!!!

So we're going to go ahead and assume David isn't Jimmy Fallon's biggest fan. LOLz.

Could it be that he fears the youngin' will continue to beat him in the ratings??

Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, Dave!

    Why doesn't FOX have a late night talk show like all the other major US networks?

    Jay, I will really miss you. I have to get up for work at about 5AM and stay up to watch your entire show every night. Even when I am on vacation I set the timer on my VCR to record your shows. I will reall miss you. In fact I wish I had every show of yours recorded so I can watch them whenever I want.

    Re: bree – I wholly dislike him as well. It will be good to see someone funny on the show since carson left.

    Hope he really goes this time. I haven't enjoyed the show since carson left. I've never found Leno funny.
