Richter calls out Leno

Conan sidekick Andy Richter was the guest co-host on Live with Regis & Kelly this morning, and he had plenty to say about NBC and Jay Leno. It gets particularly delicious at the 4-minute point.

It’s nice to know that the reality of the situation was communicated to Leno-loving middle America. Though how much of it they actually absorbed – with fancy showbiz terms like “lead-in” – is anyone’s guess.
