Trivia

On the week of Jay's final Tonight Show Episode longtime rival Howard Stern went on David Letterman's Late Show and said the following: "I never liked Jay. I can't stand Jay," Stern said. "I've never seen anybody who behaves like a robot like this guy. I watched his final show, saying goodbye to the 'Tonight Show,' reading it off a teleprompter for crying out loud. Where's the emotion? Where's the humanity?" Pointing at Letterman, Stern then shouted, "Here's the host that we want to watch." See more »
