Jay Leno To Joy Behar On Current TV Sale: ‘Osama Bin Laden Is Your New Boss?’

Comedian Joy Behar dropped by The Tonight Show Friday and was ribbed by Jay Leno about the recent sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. He began the interview by asking, “Now what happened to Current TV? Osama bin Ladin is your new boss?”

Leno mentioned that conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck was also in talks to buy the network. When asked how she felt about the sale, Behar quipped, “That would be like if David Letterman bought NBC, how would you like it?”

Behar was of course referring to the famous feud between Leno and Letterman which has consistently been the stuff of comedic dreams.

Behar rolled her eyes when Leno asked her about possible changes to the network. “I just work there,” she said. “I’m learning Farsi, you know.”
