Jimmy Kimmel Live also has a new host

Conan O'Brien isn't the only late night host with a bone to pick with Jay Leno. Or is that stick, as is "stick in Leno's eye until his chin deflates"?

Kimmel became the old/new Tonight Show host on his own show to announce that Kimmel will be stepping down so Leno can become the dictator-for-life of all of television's late night.

I would highly recommend checking out the rest of the show, as he continues the Leno bit to the end including a great interview with Chevy Chase. Here are the Hulu and abc.com links to it.

I give Leno credit for not using his show to try and address the ridiculous amount of Leno bashing going on (does anyone believe he went to NBC and said give me the 11:30 timeslot - no, they're annoyed because he just didn't go away,) instead, he's blaming the party that is to blame for this debacle - NBC.

I loved how they had that stupid bass player kick in after each joke....that's one feature of Jay's show that is like having someone scratch a chalkboard.
If Jay has a sense of humor then he won't have any problem with what Jimmy did.

Well he did say after the famous upfronts rant that he and Leno were "friendly" but not friends. He use to really not like him bc he's such a letterman fan. I guess he feels whats going on is unjust. And it was hilarious yesterday

Adam Carolla on the other hand its pretty close with Leno. Would be great to see his take on the podcast
