Jane Lynch, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'A producer suggested to Jane Lynch that she not insult anyone when she hosts the Emmys this week, according to a story she told on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). We can't help but wonder if this producer was still hurt by Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes hosting gig.

Add that sensitivity to Lynch's 'Glee' character and her penchant for slinging insults, and you've got the recipe for hurt feelings, apparently.

"It's easy to go snarky, And I get that. So I am going to rip these people apart!" she said, before quickly adding, "No I'm not."

She will, however, hope to improve on Jay Leno's work hosting back in 1990. She showed an awkward clip from the show's opening, which managed to be both uncomfortable to watch and unfunny at the same time.

"Surprising, that was the last time I hosted," Leno said, admitting it wasn't his finest hour.
