NBC officially announced today that Jay Leno is retiring in 2014 and The Tonight Show will pass to Late Night host Jimmy Fallon. Sound familiar? A younger, smarter, funnier host attempts to replace Leno as host of the Tonight Show…that’s always worked out well. First, Leno used backroom tactics and a smear campaign against David Letterman to take over after Johnny Carson retired. This in spite of the fact that Carson wanted Letterman to replace him. Then a couple of years ago Leno retired and let Conan O’Brien take over for a few months…until he swooped in and took back the Tonight Show.
Jay Leno is a big-chinned assmuncher that is racked with jealousy for anyone funnier than him…so, anyone else on TV. He’s basically like a child who beats up his brother and farts in his mouth if he catches him playing with his toy. And, yeah, I did that, so I got a little Leno in me too. Still, it mostly comes down to the petty jealousy and mindless conquest mentality of Hollywood. It makes people successful. Also really fucking annoying.
