The Late Shift

Don't get me wrong, I'm on Team Conan, but YouTube user FiveAlex2009 has posted 26 Jay Leno appearances on 'The Late Show with David Letterman'....

All before their friendship crumbled because Jay Leno and his manager used shady tactics to beat out David Letterman for the 'Tonight Show' host position after Johnny Carson had retired.... And when I say beat out, I mean, having an agent who bullies NBC executives and hiding in closets during executive meetings to gain an upper hand in negotiations.... Have you seen the movie 'The Late Shift'? It's about the battle for the 'Tonight Show' host gig.... Now we need 'The Late Shift 2' to cover NBC's latest debacle between Jay and Conan O'Brien....

Keep in mind, most of the videos include David Letterman asking Jay Leno a question, then Jay proceeding to talk for four to five minutes. But it was interesting to see their dynamic (and Jay 'Elvis' Leno) before the feud.... Click on the photo of Jay and Dave to see the videos....
