Jay Leno didn't just ruffle the feathers on the NBC peacock Monday -- he yanked them out one-by-one, delivering a venomous monologue aimed at the network, after its botched late night plans have resulted in anemic ratings and disgruntled talent.

"I leave NBC prime time the same way as I found it," Leno said. "A complete disaster."
