Just hours after Jay Leno aired his late-night laundry to Oprah Winfrey and insisted he felt "sucker punched" by Jimmy Kimmel, the comedian delivered a sharp monologue defending his recent appearance on 'The Jay Leno Show' in which he let loose about shakeups at NBC.

"[Leno] went on Oprah and rats me out," Kimmel said during his 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' monologue. "That's a sucker-punch right there. You don't go to Oprah and say that. He's a tattle-tale."
