Mister Phil McGraw was on David Letterman last night and asked Dave to give his true honest opinion about the Leno-O’Brien war of a few months back, and Dave didn’t hold back:
“I loved it. It was great fun,” Letterman said, delving into a squeaky Leno imitation. “I loved Jay summing things up, ‘Yeah, yeah, well [O’Brien and I] both got screwed.’ Wait a minute, Jay. You both got screwed and yet you’re the only one who ended up with a show. How did you get screwed exactly?”
McGraw said he thinks Leno got a “bum rap” for the criticism he has endured since reclaiming The Tonight Show.
“Believe me, he got everything he deserved,” Letterman said… “You can’t not love him. But then there’s also this other side of him where — and I think he would own up to it — he’s just a complete boob. He can’t help himself.”
If only Dave would give his opinion on Mister Phil next!
