When Jimmy Kimmel said he likes "beating things to death" he wasn't joking. Three weeks into the drama, Kimmel's onscreen feud with Jay Leno entered stage three last night. The sharpest barb comes when he cuts into Leno's comedic deficiencies:
The mistake I made was thinking Jay would have anything other to say than what was written on the cue cards. I figured he'd get into it and mix it up. You know, at one time he was a comedian. But he just stood there, kind-of reading through the questions like a robot and then goes off and rats me out to Oprah.
Is this the beginning of a new late-night feud? The editors at TV Fanatic say the Team Kimmel vs. Team Leno rivalry has already begun.
