Jimmy Kimmel Congratulates Old Enemy Jay Leno Before Final Tonight Show
“Issues aside, 20 years at #1 is a remarkable achievement. Congratulations and best wishes to
@jayleno on an incredible run,” Kimmel tweeted.
Leno is leaving after two decades at the helm of the country’s most popular late-night talk show.
Of course, the last time Leno left “Tonight” — to let Conan O’Brien take over briefly, before returning — Kimmel was less than kind.
As Leno bids farewell for good, though, Kimmel has nothing but congratulations for the comedy icon.
