Howard Stern Sure Doesn’t Like Jay Leno
Howard Stern was on the new Piers Morgan show on CNN last night, and boy, does that guy dislike Jay Leno:
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.”
Relatively uncontroversial statements, at least to this demographic. But here’s the thing, Howard: you disliking Leno won’t change a thing. Leno will always be able find some typos in local newspapers and please a certain demographic and get his ratings. You can’t win against such a man; you just have to learn to ignore him.
