Jay Leno Took Another Swing At His NBC Bosses, Ripping The Network’s Ratings

Last night during his Tonight Show monologue, Jay Leno took yet another swing at NBC execs with a crack about the network’s ratings just one day after he referred to his bosses as “snakes.

“Did you hear about this?” his joke began. “A 28-year-old woman from Serbia has a rare brain condition where she sees everything upside down. The good news? She’s now been given a job at the White House as President Obama’s economic adviser. So it’s worked out. Isn’t that crazy? It’s unbelievable. She sees everything upside down.”

The punchline: “In fact, she thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings.”

All of this came the night before the New York Times reported that NBC plans to move the show to New York City by 2014 and replace Leno with the younger Jimmy Fallon.
