Jay Leno Says He Was 'Blindsided' By NBC (Video)
Posted by Steve on January 27 2014
Remember back in 2009 when Jay Leno left the Tonight Show for the first time and was replaced with Conan O'Brien?  Then, about six months later after NBC wasn't happy with Conan, they got rid of him and brought Leno back?  Of course you do.  It was the biggest story in the world for a while.  

In an interview that aired last night on 60 Minutes, for the first time, Leno talked about exactly what went down behind the scenes with the whole fiasco.  Leno said that he was "blindsided" by NBC's decision to kick him to the curb and pass the reigns over to Conan.  He also said that he was pretty disappointed with the way the media portrayed him as the bad guy when NBC brought him back months later.

Leno's final episode of the Tonight Show will air next month with Jimmy Fallon taking over after that, but once again, it seems like he's being forced out.  Check out his comments in the video below.
