Jay Leno was at it again last night.
The Tonight Show host, who some believe will be forced out after his contract is up in the spring of 2014, pissed off NBC last week by mocking the network’s pathetic ratings.
But an exchange of emails with executive Robert Greenblatt apparently did nothing to quell Leno’s anger with his bosses. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Leno has made headlines once again for railing against NBC, referring to the higher-ups as “snakes” in the following segment from his most recent monologue:Robert Greenblatt Jay Leno Slams NBC Executives

What’s the deal with stars and their cars? Most often than not, they’re not riding what we usual folks are driving around town. With their astronomical incomes, these stars do ditch the chaffeur just to be snap driving their very own exotic ride.
The kind of cars that would draw on envy and awe from the most avid auto enthusiasts. Here are some famous figures and their hot luxury cars:
A luxury car wouldn’t be very ‘Paris Hilton‘ unless it was bubblegum pink and monogrammed to death. But that’s what Paris Hilton’s been driving around Hollywood- her hot pink Bentley Continental GT whichMore >
Mel Gibson appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night and surprisingly, he willingly brought up his most recent secretly recorded meltdown.
He joked about it repeatedly, no less.
The now-infamous Mel Gibson rant, in which he RAGED at Joe Eszterhas (and was taped in his own home, unwittingly, by Eszterhas’ son), was over the top, he conceded. Still, Mel believes his privacy was violated and his actions were “justified.” Why?
Eszterhas’ script for The Maccabees was non-existent, then awful, Mel said, proceeding to slam the screenwriter for sellingMore >
First Lady Michelle Obama cajoled Jay Leno into eating healthy foods for the first time in … oh, ever during her visit to the Tonight Show on NBC Tuesday.
Promoting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to get kids excited about fitness and healthy diets, Michelle brought out some food to make an example out of Jay.
As both Jay and Michelle joked repeatedly about his eating habits, Leno sampled apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, peppers and zucchini.
Could’ve used some sausage, but even Jay conceded it wasn’t bad.
Apart from his TBS talk show, a role in the new movie ‘The Smurfs’ and planning an exit to Canada if Sarah Palin wins office, George Lopez has yet another plan for his life – he wants to be Mayor of Los Angeles.
“This is a great city, and it’s my city,” 50-year old Lopez told Piers Morgan. “I believe there are certain things that could be taken care of for which you don’t need a strong political background.”
One thing, he says, is the style of construction;
“Architecture downtown is beautiful and people live there, but they don’t have the pride in Los Angeles they did years ago.”

Taylor Swift visited the Tonight Show on Tuesday night, and her reaction to one of Jay Leno’s jokes that BOMBED was one of the highlights for us.
A lot of people think Jay is a hilarious guy. Taylor is one of them, but fortunately for all things sane, not in the way Leno likely thinks he’s funny.
Case in point? Leno struck out with what he was hoping was a charming impression of fashion photographers. The silence? Not un-awkward.
It started when Swift talked about her recent work for Cover Girl, which she says is a lot deal of fun, and even involved a thing called a “leaping coach.”
It’s official, Jay Leno is now a Harvard man, well maybe not, but he has been named the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University.
The drama troupe is the oldest undergraduate program of it’s kind in the United States and they annually honor an individual who entertains the masses.
According to the group Jay Leno was chosen because he has:
“Entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy….”
Although we have the sneaking suspicion that the controversy Leno drew between himself and Conan probably helped the group pickMore >
