  • Is Jay Leno Stealing Jokes for 'The Tonight Show'?

    Posted May 31st 2011 at 10:00 PM by Tracey Harrington McCoy

    In the world of comedy, there's nothing worse than stealing material. But late night TV host, Jay Leno, is under fire for doing just that. The Daily Caller reports that last week Jay Leno told a joke that was eerily similar to a joke told two days earlier by Andy Levy on 'Red Eye,' an overnight show on the Fox News channel. Here's a transcript of both: 'The Tonight Show' on May 26 Leno: Ba...

    Posted Feb 4th 2011 at 10:05 AM by AOL TV Editors

    Howard Stern has made a career out of saying whatever he wants and making no apologies. Last night, his conscience got the better of him when it came to David Letterman. TV Squad writes that on the 'Late Show,' Stern made a genuine apology to Letterman for something that happened many years ago. Early in both of their entertainment careers, Letterman used to call Stern at home. Stern would then...

    Posted Jan 17th 2011 at 01:35 PM by Sarah Crow

    Shock jock Howard Stern has some less-than-flattering things to say about somebody, and this time, it's not a guest on his show. The radio host is accusing late-night legend Jay Leno of ripping off his material. Stern appeared on Piers Morgan's CNN show and told the host, "Jay is insane. And Jay is a crook. And the world knows exactly what he's up to. He steals a tremendous amount of material,"...

    Posted Jan 12th 2011 at 06:09 PM by Rebecca Macatee

    Conan O'Brien sure can hold a grudge, but I can't say I blame him. The funny man told the AP that while David Letterman reached out to him over the holidays, late night rival Jay Leno did not. O'Brien told reporters today that he and Letterman have "always been good." The CBS host just wanted to make sure that the past year's TV troubles hadn't created any tension between them. Leno, who pre...

  • Cable King Jon Stewart Beats Out Letterman and Leno

    Posted Nov 4th 2010 at 04:55 PM by Jett Wells

    Even when you're a comic superstar like Jon Stewart, it takes something monumental for a cable guy to beat out network titans like David Letterman and Jay Leno. Well, people, that time has come. It took an interview with President Barack Obama and 215,000 people rallying in costume, but Stewart's 'The Daily Show' finally edged out Letterman and Leno's ratings by a nose for October, according to Th...

    Posted Nov 1st 2010 at 11:29 AM by PopEater Staff

    Andy Richter isn't exactly sad that Jay Leno's ratings have dipped below those of Conan O'Brien before he left 'The Tonight Show.' "I don't want to wish ill will on anybody, but I would be lying to you if I said it didn't feel a little bit fun to hear that -- that there wasn't some kind of feeling of reward in that," Richter told the New York Post. "It is kind of vindicating in a way." Richt...

    And the late-night war wages on: During the opening monologue of Tuesday's 'Tonight Show,' host Jay Leno took a subtle, blink-and-you'll-miss-it jab at former NBC rival Conan O'Brien. It came at the end of a joke about Faisal Shahzad, the man suspected of last weekend's attempted car bombing in Times Square, during which Leno highlighted Shahzad's fake Facebook profile page.

  • Jimmy Fallon 'Told' to Host the Emmy Awards

    Posted May 4th 2010 at 02:00 PM by Dino Sossi

New house band for when the show started -- The Roots. And now, he's been asked to be the new host for the 'Emmy Awards,' reports E! Online. Well, maybe not asked.

Things have settled down, and yet David Letterman still can't resist throwing a few belated spitballs at Jay Leno. Maybe you got a rueful chuckle out of the moment on Monday night's 'Late Show' when Letterman, talking to guest Dr. Phil McGraw, started making fun of Leno...
