Howard Stern Finds Jay Leno Vomitus
Jay Leno's return to The Tonight Show may have generated stellar ratings and pummeled late night rival David Letterman in the ratings, but one guy still thinks he sucks: Howard Stern.
Sirius radio host and the self-proclaimed King of All Media, Howard Stern was invited to give his opinion on Jay's return on The Early Show. In classic Stern style, he held nothing back, including his stomach's contents. Via The Daily Beast:
Stern's dislike for Leno is a long-running topic of discussion on the show. Stern, who speaks bluntly of his likes and dislikes thinks Jay's a fraud and has aligned himself to some degree with Jay's long-time rival, fellow late night host David Letterman. But there's more to it than just that, Stern inherently finds Leno repulsive and hypocritical. Howard's own career was built on not towing the company line, but rather blazing his own trail. Clearly he doesn't like Jay's toady-lick-spittal way of getting ahead. Here's a bit of what he said in the video:
"Just the mere mention of Jay Leno's name makes me to want to vomit. I don't like this guy. I don't disguise it."
"Jay Leno seems to be the kind of showbiz animal that won't let go, Jay is a lap dog."Hopefully Jay will enjoy this short-lived ratings boon, mark my words, it won't continue. No word yet on what Conan thinks, however, you can keep up with the Coco via his tweets.
