Jay Leno seems to be burning his bridges over at NBC.
It’s been a week on The Tonight Show, with the host jabbing his bosses at the peacok network and they aren’t happy. But, it isn’t stopping him.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leno made his second joke offending the people at NBC during his monologue.
"Isn't that crazy? It's unbelievable. She sees everything upside down. In fact, she thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings." Leno said about a women from Serbia who has a brain condition which causes her to see things upside down.
This comes just after he called executives "snakes" on Monday.
According to The New York Times this entire debacle started when top NBC executive Robert Greenblat got angry at Leno last month for the host joking about NBC’s low ratings.
The confrontation between Greenblat seems to have not worked and only made things worst because since those ratings jokes, Leno has called the NBC executives snakes aside from the comment last night.
Rumors of NBC firing Leno and replacing him with Jimmy Fallon were reported on March 1 by THR and even though the network has denied these rumors, sources are still saying that the announcement will be made in May.
