Donald Trump Fires Jay Leno

2/9/2010 9:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Leno just permanently turned off the lights to his primetime NBC talk show -- but not before Donald Trump stepped in to officially fire his ass.



TMZ infiltrated the taping of the final "Jay Leno Show" -- where just moments ago, Jay was doing a satellite bit with Donald Trump. At the end of the bit, His Hairness sent Jay on his way the only way he knows how -- "You're Fired!"

We're told everyone laughed -- including Jay.

Wonder what Conan thinks?

"REALITY - Jay is funny and Conan is not, nuf said."

Yes, this is reality in the Twilight Zone or on Bizarro World. Back on our planet, Leno's about as funny as an income tax audit.

It's not even funny.It's boring, predictable and lame just like all Leno's jokes.

UGGGGHHH    

Jay is and ALWAYS was the man for THE TONIGHT SHOW. He is a very funny guy. That's why NBC asked JAY LENO back and was very SORRY TO EVER LOSE HIM to that non funny idiot CONAN OBRIEN.

CONAN WHO??? THANK GOD HE IS GONE. Hopefully for GOOD. I never want to see that red head on TV again. Thats one way to lose viewers.

Give it to NBC.....ratings are down....cause friction....

To bad it took take two likeable personalities to do it....

I feel sorry for Conan and his family; feel sorry for Jay he didn't ask for the crap he's having to take!

As for Trump...he's butt.

Jay Leno's finale was hilarious especially Ashton Kutcher playing catch with Kurt Warner. Yet another reason Coco who is barely able to negotiate for FX made a mistake letting his ego push him out:

Jayloonies must be the street people he interviews; or people with that level of education.

I am sick of hearing about Donald Trump saying 'You're Fired'. He need to take care of his real estates business, instead being in TV. He is not celebrity actor.

Leno is comfort food for the old and stale, which is an accurate description of his shtick. Conan is where it's at (even Letterman and Kimmel are funnier than Leno), and I can't wait for his next tv gig.

Listen Up people-
NEITHER Conan OR Leno are funny, BOTH are lame.
Leno is the simply lesser of two evils.
case closed.
