    Well, it's pretty pathetic that Leno is looking for sympathy after his part in the mess. I watch the tonight show because it's a great show with great guests; I don't watch it because Leno is funny, because he's not. Like the author said, he has no wit what-so-ever and he's actually rude to his guests at times, thinking he's being clever. Conan just didn't fit the part, he's too quirky for that show, but I like him. Jimmy Kimmel is a comedian doing his job, he's funny.

    Everyone who bashes Leno are simply ignorant, this article, and the other one, too...I had no idea Kimmel was so spiteful, so hateful...so wicked, evil. Jimmy DID sucker punch Leno, but he is trying to make it seem like something else. Talk about a spin doctor. A snake. I kind of liked Jimmy, but this is ridiculous! Jimmy: grow-friggin-up!!!

    Jay Leno always made fun of people when they were down or hurting in some way- now he is getting some of that bad energy back, that's all.

    If blame goes anywhere it goes straight on the shoulders of the NBC execs who bungled this whole thing from the beginning. Jay had the Tonight Show at #1. Why even speak about a replacement until that changed? If his ratings failed, THEN replace him. Moving him to 10pm for 5 nights a week was just plain STUPID. Makes me think either the NBC execs are idiots or they had another agenda that overrode them looking like idiots. Whatever the case, this is NOT Jay's fault nor should he take any blame for it, nor is it Conan's fault. BOTH are pawns in a bigger game and BOTH deserve better and NEITHER deserve to be beat up for something that is totally out of their hands.

    Everyone seems to be forgetting that Jay was rated #1 when he was on the Tonight Show. You can spin it anyway you want but reality is that Conan didn't make it...Dave didn't make it....Jimmy Kimmel evidently doesn't have what it takes to be considered. The entire issue...starting in 2004...was handled poorly. But Jay didn't start it.

    In this era of economic crisis why is a multi-millionaire whining about having a job! Get over it Jay!

    What happened to Conan was wrong and you know it, which is why you went on Oprah. Oprah does not have the power to make this right, you need to make your peace with Conan privately.

    Retire and let someone else--not you or Conan who is also hooked up-- who has paid his/her dues have a shot at the Tonight Show. Please.

    Jimmy Kimmel is way off base and has no reason to complain about any other comedian not being funny.
    I saw him once when I was in Dubai and could not get any other channels so I was forced to watch him.
    He is possibly the worst comedian I have ever heard and I felt embarrassed that he was allowed to represent us in countries overseas. He comes across as arrogant and uppity.
    If you want someone who is really funny and kind to his guests at the same time and does not get involved in bashing people try Craig Ferguson. You will never watch anyone like Kimmel again.
    Why is Huffington Post printing his rude and attention getting remarks!
