Howard Stern uses Letterman platform to rip on Jay Leno

We know one person who must be happy that David Letterman is nearing a deal with CBS to extend The Late Show through the 2011-12 season: Howard Stern. On last night's Late Show, the Sirius Radio star respectfully thanked Letterman for putting him on the map in the first place, but then totally ripped on Jay Leno in a rather uncomfortable (especially if you were Dave) segment. After an unsuccessful first attempt at bringing up the current late-night Conan vs. Letterman war, Stern piped up again (at about 4:20 in the video below) to let everyone know just how much he can't stand Leno. "I've never seen anybody who behaves like a robot like this guy," said Stern, critiquing the way Leno appeared to be reading from a teleprompter during his final Tonight Show. "Where's the emotion? Where's the humanity?" [Gestures to Dave] "Here's the host we wanna watch!" Then he did a little dance. What a fun, sexy time for all of us!

What do you think of Stern's outburst — too much? Just right?

    Ugh what a tool

    You have to remember who is making the remarks about Leno. Stern is programed to be constantly offensive and has never been funny.

    Ugh what a tool.

    Stern is an idiot, even when he’s right.

    Howard Stern…remind me why anybody listens to this guy. His 15 minutes of fame were up about five years ago. What a jerk. The guy who impersonated him on “MadTV” was a better Howard Stern than the real one.

    stern is an overpaid jerk and of course, jerks have no class.

  • Matt

    Lukespack, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Stern hates Lenno because Lenno went behind Stern’s back and courted one of Stern’s employees for a job. I love when people think they know anything about his show and never once listened to more then 5 minutes of it.

    Jay Leno makes Stern looks like the looser he is. Anyone who likes Sterm is a fool, a jerk and a coward. Why doesn’t he tell Leno to his face, Why,cause he IS A COWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Stern has he just want do it in public so Jay Leno can capitalize on the ratings that a Stern appearance will bring, think about it that way, when Dave came back from his heart bypass Jay had Stern on to compete against him taht night because draws an audiuence, so its fine if you don’t like Stern but give him credit too

  • Matt

    Tony, you’re another one. Stern HAS confronted Leno. I wonder what would the face to face confrontation accomplish? Talk about a coward… Jay hid in a closet to eavesdrop on the executives to get the job. I wonder where he got the idea for Jay Walking? He got it from Stern! Oh, & that’s another thing Stern confronted Jay about to which Jay reacted like a spineless jerk.

    Stern is the hippest show most of you aren’t listening to.
    One of the best interviewers of all time, along with Letterman.
    NBC should be worried.

  • mario

    Howard tells it like it is, he’s not a fake kiss ass like Leno.

  • tempe

    Agree with Stern

  • Morgan

    Leno is a coward and a thief- and unfunny and apparently a deviant. He’s sneaky. Howard is full on funny smart and fearless. Any of y ou who don;t get him are stupid tools!

  • boston

    You may like Stern, but it doesn’t make him wrong.

  • john
