Howard Stern was on Piers Morgan’s not-Larry King show last night, and Stern shared some shocking opinions about Jay Leno that would have been extremely timely 12 or 13 months ago.
He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman’s feet. I don’t know why he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings. It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons, who at night lay in bed, the ones that are watching him must be in a coma…
[on Conan] If I was Jay Leno, I would’ve manned up. I would’ve said, “Listen. Conan, you think you’re so good? I’m gonna go to Fox network, or I’m gonna go to ABC, and I’m gonna put my show on, and I’m gonna kick your ass. THAT’S what a man does. You don’t sort of weasel your way back in.”
I don’t like Jay personally. Jay was one of the greatest stand-up comics, in my opinion, when he was younger. But I do not like the way he’s behaved with me personally. I’ve done his show many times in the past; I won’t do it again.
I mean, yeah. I agree with Stern, but it just seems like piling on at this point. C’mon dude, just put some Penthouse Pets on the Sybian (link is NSFW video).
