Jay Leno made his last 10 p.m. jokes Tuesday night, minus any big tearful goodbye or mention of The Tonight Show. The NBC-Jay war has finally come to an end, and Ashton Kutcher made sure to give it a proper burial!
Jay gave his last Jay Leno Show monologue, including a quick and simple joke about the end of the show.
“It seems like just yesterday I was telling NBC this was not going to work,” he said. “This show was supposed to be on for two years… but we got five months for good behavior.”
Kurt Warner threw a few passes during the show, Precious star Gabourey Sidibe graced the stage and Donald Trump even stopped by via satellite to officially fire Jay. But the laughter really began when Ashton Kutcher chatted with Jay and explained that the whole experiment was actually just a prank from Punk’d!
“Six years ago, I sat in an office at NBC — unfortunately, we forgot to roll the cameras and so I don’t have any of the tape, but I thought I’d come out and do the reveal,” Ashton said.
“You did a hell of a job,” Jay laughed. “I’m glad it’s over.”
At the end, Jay didn’t say anything about moving back to Tonight after the Olympics.
We’ll have to stay tuned.
