Jay Leno: "NBC Is a Big Number Two"

TV Guide

Jay Leno has resorted to toilet humor in his jabs at NBC.

Leno called his parent network "a big number two" in his The Tonight Show monologue on Wednesday. Addressing Monday's prime-time ratings, Leno noted that The Voice and Revolution had bumped NBC up to second place for the night.

"Between Easter and Passover, this is truly the season of miracles. We're No. 2!" he said. "And I've been saying that for the last week, that NBC is a big number two."

It's just the latest insult Leno has hurled at the network, which is reportedly replacing him as Tonight Show host with Jimmy Fallon. To say that Leno isn't taking the move well would be an understatement.

Elsewhere in Wednesday's monologue, Leno noted T-Mobile's plans to eliminate contracts for its mobile users. "Apparently they got the idea from NBC," Leno said.
