Jay Leno: It Wasn’t My Decision to Leave The Tonight Show (Video)
As you may have heard, Jay Leno is leaving ‘The Tonight Show.’ Leno’s last day on late night show is February 6. Jimmy Fallon will make his The Tonight Show debut on February 17.
Although Leno had nice things to say about Fallon, it sounds like he is not quite ready to say goodbye to the NBC show.
During his conversation with 60 Minutes, Leno also recalls how hurt he was when NBC chose to replace him in 2009 with Conan O’Brien, saying he was “blindsided.” He compares it to a breakup: “You know, you have a girl [who] says, ‘I don’t want to see you anymore.’ Why? You know, she doesn’t want to see you anymore, okay?”
