Its no surprise to hear what David Letterman thinks of Jay Leno. “He’s just a complete boob,” Letterman says.
On Monday night Dave’s Late Show guest, Dr. Phil McGraw, asked his opinion about the late-night fight between Leno and Conan O’Brien.
“I loved it. It was great fun,” Letterman said. “I loved Jay summing things up, ‘Yeah, yeah, well [O’Brien and I] both got screwed.’ Wait a minute, Jay. You both got screwed and yet you’re the only one who ended up with a show. How did you get screwed exactly?”
Dr. Phil told Dave he thought Leno got a “bum rap” referring to the the criticism he has endured since reclaiming The Tonight Show.
“Believe me, he got everything he deserved,” Letterman said.
“When we first met [in 1975] and were hanging around, everyone loved Jay because he’s so funny, so engaging, so compelling,” he continued. “You can’t not love him. But then there’s also this other side of him where — and I think he would own up to it — he’s just a complete boob. He can’t help himself.”
