Jay Leno Thinks Jimmy Kimmel Gets Low Ratings Because He's Too Mean! See All The Late Night Shade HERE!
We bet Sarah Silverman would agree with him — HA!
Jimmy Kimmel may be one of the reigning kings of Late Night, but that doesn't mean he's necessarily loved by everyone in the industry.
In a recent interview, Jay Leno got a little blunt while promoting his new CNBC show Jay Leno's Garage, and called Jimmy out for being so mean.
"The most important element you can have in doing a late night show is kindness. Because the show makes you arrogant. I think that's Jimmy Kimmel's problem. I think he's a talented guy, I think he's funny. But he has a mean streak, and it comes across. He does this thing where he takes Halloween candy from kids and the kids cry. What am I missing here? It is funny I guess, but it's mean-based. I think that's why he's not higher in the ratings."
We actually kind of get his point. Laughing at kids' expense with his annual Halloween prank might be in a bit of a moral grey area…
Then again, those crying videos are some of Jimmy's most viral content, so we don't think they're hurting his viewership.
But hey — at least Jimmy knows who to base his next Mean Tweets segment on! JK!
