Jay Leno breaks silence about David Letterman’s retirement


Few feuds in television have been more well known that that of the Jay Leno – David Letterman feud. The two late night talk show hosts had a bitter rivalry that stemmed over the course of years and featured continued subtle verbal barbs in ways only comedians could convey.

But after years of back and forth, the two finally decided to make peace as Leno announced the two were no longer bickering last year, this after the two began their war of words in 1992.

Now Leno has finally broken his silence on the impending retirement of his former rival in the only way Leno could, suggesting the two will go to Broadway together.

When asked about his former fellow late-night host, Jay laughed and said, “Oh well you know, he and I gonna do ‘The Sunshine Boys’ on Broadway, so we’re very excited about that.”

That wasn’t the only thing Leno had to say as the former late night host was asked about potentially filling in for Letterman, but Leno suggested that there was ‘nothing to fill-in’.

As for who Jay thinks should replace Dave, he says, “I don’t know, a lot of good people out there… there’s nothing to fill in.”
