Jay Leno doesn’t appear to have any allies left among his late-night colleagues. On Thursday night, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel used an appearance on ‘The Jay Leno Show’ to rip the host, who good-naturedly put up with the sharp-edged ribbing.

When Leno asked Kimmel what show he would still like to host, the ABC comedian responded: “Oh, this is a trick, right? Where you get me to host ‘The Tonight Show,’ and then take it back from me? Listen, Lucy, I’m not Charlie Brown. I don’t fall for that trick.”

A few minutes later, when Leno suggested he might make the jump to ABC, Kimmel stuck the knife in deeper: ‘Listen, Jay, Conan and I have children....You’ve got $800 million. For God’s sake, leave our shows alone!’
