Jimmy Kimmel slams Leno in the latest Rolling Stone magazine, which hits shelves Friday, according to NY Daily. The ABC host is on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone and in a magazine report Kimmel is quoted as saying:
"As a comedian, you can't not have disdain for what he's done: He totally sold out."He then said the NBC "Tonight Show" host "was a master chef who opened a Burger King."
Next week, Kimmel's show will make the move to the 11:35 p.m. spot, which is earlier than his current midnight spot.
This isn't the first time Kimmel slams Leno. In 2010 he mocked Jay Leno while during an impersonation of him on his show. Later, he also made an appearance on the now no longer existing Leno primetime talk show, and criticized him for his plans to return to the "The Tonight Show" following Conan O'Brien's forced exit.
He even went as far as cursing Leno when he said, "F*** him", at an event last year in NYC.
Meanwhile, Kimmel seems to be more fond of David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. In the Rolling Stone issue he says:
"If I beat David Letterman in the ratings, does that mean I'm better than Letterman? No f***ing way," he said.
"People are going to compare me and him for years to come - we're being positioned as the Leno and Letterman of the next round," he said about Fallon. "I like it because he's a very worthy competitor."
