Jay Leno mocks NBC fourth night in a row, may move to Fox
Jay Leno opened last night's "Tonight Show" with another jab at NBC executives, who are reportedly replacing the long-time late night host with Jimmy Fallon despite the fact that Leno's program is one of the few successful programs on the network.. The thinly-veiled criticism is Leno's fourth attack on NBC executives this week.
He asked the audience, “Are you all excited about March Madness?”
“People are talking about who’s in, who’s out, who’s gonna be eliminated. And that’s just here at NBC," he said. "I’ve never been in the paper this much. It’s fantastic.”
But Leno might have a new home at Fox, who has been wanting to start its own late night show for some time, now. Steve Pruett, the board chairman of Fox, told the New York Post that “If Fox were to present the right business plan, the affiliate board would be interested" in signing Leno onto the network.
