VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Jay Leno

“It’s great to be here on ABC. Hey Cleto - You know what ABC stands for?” Kimmel then asked his bandleader. “Always Bump Conan.”

The Leno lookalike then addressed the decision announced by Conan O’Brien earlier in the day. “Anyway, Conan O’Brien today announced that he is leaving NBC. He released a statement today that said I won’t participate in the destruction of The Tonight Show. Fortunately, though, I will.

Wow. Just how much nastier do you think the late-night barbs will get between now and February 12?
