Morning Joe Critiques Late Night TV: “Jay Leno’s 10 O’Clock Show Just Sucked”

Morning Joe went off on a late night TV tangent today after playing a clip of Jimmy Fallon making a former Pres. Bill Clinton joke.

Joe Scarborough didn’t hold back on his thoughts about Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and more.

Scarborough thought the first couple weeks of Fallon were “painful,” but everyone agreed he’s come into his own. Kimmel, meanwhile, has “stepped into a special place,” and “this year is his moment.”

But the best stuff was reserved for Conan/Leno. Donny Deutsch thinks Conan needs to be less “angry.”

How about the old late night set up, Joe?

Leno’s 10 o’clock show just sucked. It wasn’t funny at all. To get paid that much money and to be that bad, he sucked. And Conan at 11:30, I’m sorry, that was not the Tonight Show.

Well, alright then. Scarborough also hinted at the advice Conan didn’t take from what sounds like Dick Ebersol, to play to the Central Time Zone. Here’s the full segment tangent:
