The former Tonight Show host Jay Leno was recently interviewed with the New York Daily News and went on the record to announce that Jimmy Kimmel ratings are lower because he’s mean.

The saddest part? The Tonight Show represented the pinnacle of a stand-up comic’s career; a lifetime of pinching pennies and trying to survive until the next gig.

Watch the video below and you’ll see that the act was clearly staged. Was it that she was trying to blow it so badly that it was funny? Or did she simply not prepare and thought she could just “Madonna It”? read more
