Jay Leno isn’t letting up on his jabs against NBC . With rumors continuing to build that the Peacock net is replacing him as host of the Tonight Show when his contract is up September, 2014 — and would like to make it happen earlier — Leno took on his bosses Friday night.
During his monologue, Leno talked about a man who was discovered to have had a knife embedded in his back for three years.
“He must have worked at NBC, too,” Leno said.
And directly addressing the bad blood between him and his bosses, Leno said he’d had dinner with several NBC executives the night before.
They wanted to make it up to him, Jay joked. “They’re sending my wife and me on an all-expenses paid Carnival Cruise!”
Fallon’s Late Night hosting gig will most likely then go to Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers .
