Jay Leno has left The Tonight Show for a new prime time series, but that was not about to stop Howard Stern from making his feelings about him known.

In summation, the shock jock ripped Leno during his appearance on last night's Late Show and vowed to help David Letterman take down Conan O'Brien.

"We gotta beat this Conan. For God sakes, how are you feeling that Jay left late-night television and now we got a new guy we gotta compete with?" the admittedly disgruntled, bitter old man Stern asked an amused Letterman.

"And I wanna say something to this audience about loyalty ... Dave put me on national television many, many years ago before I was known. And I have stuck with Dave ... I didn't like Jay. I never liked Jay. I can't stand Jay."

No arguments here - or from the studio audience that greeted the 55-year-old radio host's scathing, somewhat odd comments with big applause!

And Stern, who later talked about other important topics, such as his wedding to Beth Ostrosky, wasn't finished with Leno there by any means.

"Let me say something. I never seen anybody who behaves like a robot like this guy," he continued. "I watched his final show. He says goodbye to The Tonight Show. He says goodbye reading it off a teleprompter for cryin' out loud."

"Where's the emotion, and where's the humanity?"

Stern recounted his one and only appearance on The Tonight Show, when he "showed up with two lesbians," which naturally turned off Leno:

"He's shocked. He walks off his own show. I knew it wouldn't last."

Did we mention Conan O'Brien taking over for Jay Leno on The Tonight Show was a great move by NBC? Last night, he reprised a classic Late Night bit to give viewers a glimpse inside the minds of the stars with his "Celebrity Surveys."

Jay Leno passes the Tonight Show baton to Conan O'Brien tonight, and we couldn't be happier. Seriously. We love David Letterman, but are much happier to see him go up against a formidable Conan than the utterly replaceable Leno.

In anticipation of Conan's first show, below is a look at one of his previous show's most genius creations - Triumph the Insult Comic Dog - talking to "Attack of the Clones" enthusiasts outside the Star Wars film's premiere in New York in 2002.

Here's Triumph venturing into the eye of the storm ...

Part of our staff adamantly maintains that John Mayer is a douchebag.

Well, the video below seems to confirm this revelation - although we have to give the singer his due for being funny and self-depricating.

John Mayer paid his respects to Conan O'Brien on the final night of his Late Night show Friday with a brief, taped and moving musical tribute.

Mayer's song, called "L.A.'s Gonna Eat You Alive," offered his thoughts on O'Brien's impending move to the Tonight Show, which films in L.A.

The best lyric? "Look at me, I used to live in NYC. Now I'm as douchey as a man can be." So true. At the end, Mayer said: "Good luck, loser."

Peep the video below ...

Uh-oh. The Emmy Award gloves are coming off!

Host Conan O'Brien was recently quoted as chiding ABC for not supporting its own, heavily nominated show. See, Grey's Anatomy is up for 11 awards and the late night talk show host seems to think its network should, therefore, encourage viewers to watch the Emmy broadcast. Even though it's on NBC.

Instead, the folks at the American Broadcasting Corporation are showing Pirates of the Caribbean in a counter-programming move.

"It just isn't done," O'Brien said of the aggressive scheduling. "ABC is pretty much saying, 'No one watch the Emmys! Screw you, Grey's Anatomy!'"

Scheduling a movie to garner ratings for your network isn't done, Conan? The Gossip doesn't see a reason why ABC would actually want viewers to tune in to the Emmys - they just hope Grey's Anatomy rakes in the awards and then the channel can market the heck out of that fact.

Plus, the Emmys did completely snub Desperate Housewives and Lost, so ABC has legitimate reasons for taking aim at the show's ratings.
