Last night, Jay Leno interviewed Jimmy Kimmel during his “10 at 10″ segment. The segment is usually a comical attempt by Leno to put the interviewee on the spot. Kimmel effectively turned the tables on Leno, by referring to the late night shakeup on NBC as often as he could.
He concluded the segment with a very effective dig at Leno, and the power he weilds with the NBC network:
“Listen, Jay, Conan and I have children,” Kimmel pleaded, “All you have to take care of is cars. I mean, we have lives to lead here. You’ve got $800 million. For God’s sakes, leave our shows alone.”
