Jay Leno returns to the nation’s TV screens on Monday night. Leno will be reclaiming his old job at NBC’s Tonight Show just nine months after turning the show over to the now unemployed Conan O’Brien, and only 19 days after NBC pulled the plug on Jay’s ill-fated primetime reality show.
When Jay Leno resumes his post as host of The Tonight Show next week, he’ll have some stiff competition from longtime late-night foe David Letterman. Letterman has been tops in the ratings ever since The Peacock unceremoniously ditched Leno in favor of the now unemployed Conan O’Brien last May. It is an honor the bespectacled staff shagger won’t be giving up without a fight.
Fans of ousted late-night host Conan O’Brien are hopping mad about the new “Get Back To Where I Once Belonged” promo toting Jay Leno’s return to The Tonight Show. In the ad, Hollywood’s biggest chin breezes down a winding road in one of his antique cars, smiling, in what seems to be a dig at the redhead comic affectionately known as Coco.
Team Conan promptly devised a defense to and ultimately struck back with a parody of the ad (Featured Above). Check out the original below:
