â€œLetterman has been hammering me every night. Going after me â€¦ Hey Kev, you know the best way to get Letterman to ignore you? Marry him. He will not bother you. He wonâ€™t look you in the eye.â€
Ouch! Â Letterman has always been bitter towards Leno and no doubt fears Leno returning to his old time slot to compete against him again. Leno beat him in the ratings for a solid decade. Â Letterman had claimed the top spot since Conan O’Brien took over for Leno last fall.
Leno will be back on The Tonight Show on March 1st.
