Now that O’Brien is out, it’s Letterman vs Leno. For weeks O’Brien and Leno battled for the host of the Tonight Show, but O’Brien took a $45 million deal to exit giving Leno his original spot of 17 years.
Letterman kicked it off mocking Leno and calling him Big Jaw. Letterman says, he is getting a kick out of making fun of Leno over and over.
Leno however fought back saing, “Letterman has been hammering me everynight,” “You know the best way to get Letterman to ignore you? Marry Him. He will not bother you. He won’t look you in the eye.”
Leno and Letterman have been in competition on and off for the past 16 years every since Leno hosted the Tonight Show in 1992 and Letterman hosted the Late show in 1993. Since leaving the Tonight Show Leno’s ratings have dropped but remained higher than Letterman in the Late Show.
Â With Leno back on the Tonight Show, what was once old beef will be rekindled because the battle is just beginning!
