Leno on Letterman:

We Buried the Hatchet

2/9/2010 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Leno and David Letterman have called a ceasefire -- and their Super Bowl ad is to blame.

Jay Leno: Click to watch
While talking about filming the spot last night, Jay put the cheap shots aside and said "Whatever happened the last 18 years disappeared, it was great to see my old friend again."

a long time Leno fan!    

Be informed BEFORE you vote! Jay Leno comes from a tight, good old fashioned Irish Catholic background. Read his book and you'll see for yourself.

Jay is old fashioned and honest so for those of you who have no clue, he would rather NOT comment specifically on something than lie about how he feels. He is telling the truth.

Leno's such a tool! Here's the best commentary I've seen on the whole Leno-Conan fiasco: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBHjQl6Qwl8

IF CHRIST, HIMSELF, CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN and went to some of you O'Brien supporters who, relentlessly and unmercifully, keep trashing Jay Leno no matter what, and if HE assured each of you that Jay Leno is a good and decent man who, like all of us, has some human flaws, those of you who have such ongoing hatred for this man would turn around and spit in the eye of the HOLY MAN and call HIM a liar. Too bad you can't see yourselves as others do. Pathetic!

@RAPper If you want people to take you seriously, you should learn to add.

First of all, 5.4 million viewers is a generous number to credit Leno with. In his final season of the TS, he was getting around 4.9 - 5.1 mil viewers. And now in prime time, he's currently getting about 4.5 mil.

During Conan's run at the TS, he had 2.6 mil viewers; Dave has 4.4 mil. That's 7 mil combined.

7 million >> 5.4 million

why is Leno the bad guy? Conan didn't make the ratings and it is his fault. I personally don't care for Conan because i think he is silly and that is not whay i want from my late night show. Conan is for the frat parties and drunks coming home from the bars, so he does need to be on later. Shame on NBC thinking Conan could carry the Tonight Show because he couldn't. So people get off Jay back its not his fault. NBC should never had put Conan in that spot.

Jay will bury the hatchet alright. Right into the spine of Dave or anyone else who gets in his way. I DONT TRUST A WORD JAY SAYS. I will never watch Jay again. And what's up with Oprah? telling Dave to "Be Nice"....

UGGGGHHH    

JAY IS THE BEST HOST. LETTERMAN WILL GO DOWN THE DRAIN WHEN JAY STARTS THE TONIGHT SHOW.
ACTUALLY, LETTERMAN ALWAYS SUCKED . THE ONLY TIME LETTERMAN GOT ANY RATINGS FROM THE VIEWERS IS WHEN HE WAS CAUGHT CHEATING WITH A STAFF MEMBER.
ONCE A CHEATER ALWAYS A CHEATER. LETTERMANS WIFE SHOULD DUMP HIM. BELIEVE ME, HE IS NOT OVER WOMAN AND WILL CHEAT AGAIN.
AS FOR ALL OF YOU HATERS OF LENO TOO FN BAD. GET OVER IT.

"IF CHRIST, HIMSELF, CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN and went to some of you O'Brien supporters..."

Butterfly, are you seriously making some kind of comparison between Jay Leno and Jesus Christ? Really? Well, yeah, it would take some kind of biblical miracle to make anyone with any taste (including Conan fans) think Leno had an ounce of talent. On the other hand, if you ask me, some kind of pact with Satan is obviously behind latern-jaw Leno's staying on air for almost 20 years and knocking Dave and Conan out of the same job.

THIS IS FOR BUSTER RAMONE #25,26,27. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence would never, ever interpret your first sentence as credible. As a matter of fact, your entire statement is off key. Such hatred! You proved my point! Sorry for you!

Hey, Butterfly, you're the one who brought Jesus into this argument, not me. If anyone looks like a loon with seeming to make this a religious cause, it would be you.

...And trust me, I'm much sorrier for anyone who thinks that Leno's a great comedy talent because they obviously are part of his brain-dead demographic. Go back to enjoying seeing the brilliant comedy that is "Jaywalking" for the ten thousandth time and stop humiliating yourself on the internet. It amazes me that you even are able to turn on a computer.

THIS IS FOR MY FRIEND, BUSTER RAMONE #30 OH, MY! WHAT A TEMPER! Do you always display such anger? It might help if you consider Anger Management classes. No need to quarrel any more. Just lie down, take a deep breath and start counting slowly, backwards, starting from 100. Don't forget your medication. Bye, Bye, and GOOD LUCK!

Oh, sorry, Butterfly, with that kind of lame, stale humor, you must be a writer for Leno. I see that you have a vested interest in all of this.

What Would Jay Do?
