Jay Leno served as the host of The Tonight Show for 22 years before stepping down in 2014, but the 65-year-old isn't wallowing in nostalgia. In fact, he's pretty certain he does not miss the late-night life.
"It's different," Leno told PEOPLE of today's landscape. "You live in the time you live in and for my time, it was great."
Though the faces have changed, Leno said at NBC/Universal's TCA Party in Beverly Hills on Wednesday that the good will is the same. Contrary to popular belief, Leno said the comedy scene isn't "some horrible, cutthroat business," he said. "The idea that there's all this stabbing in the back, I mean, it's really not."
In that spirit, Leno shared his candid – and generally affectionate – opinions on some of his most direct peers, including his Tonight Show successor, Jimmy Fallon, his former time slot competitor David Letterman and the ascendant Stephen Colbert.

When David Letterman announced he was retiring from the Late Show, there was much speculation that Chelsea Handler might be his lucky replacement – but the comedian actually wasn't interested in the job.
"I was not interested in going to a network. I was never interested in taking somebody else's job. That's not an interesting job for me. I [had already done] something very similar," the former Chelsea Lately host told reporters at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "It was never a very serious conversation."

In his first interview after retiring from the Late Show last month, David Letterman told his hometown magazine, the Indianapolis Monthly, that retirement has been a bit of an adjustment.
"As it turns out, after all these years of having someone make my calls for me, I can no longer operate a telephone," Letterman, 68, said of having an assistant for the past 33 years.
He also says he's at a bit of a loss when it comes to his grooming.
"I don't know what to do with my hair, either. But I'll never wear makeup again, so that's no problem."

David Letterman is already enjoying the perks of retirement just four days after wrapping Late Show, cheering on his team at the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday in Indiana.
The longtime racing fan was honored by his IndyCar team, who paid tribute to the former Late Show host through caricature. A smiling, gap-toothed illustration of Letterman was added to driver Oriol Servia's No. 32 yellow car, with "Thanks, Dave" accompanying the Late Show logo, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Team members also wore gray t-shirts mimicking Letterman's famous "Top Ten" lists, instead counting down the reasons they love the talk show host.
"With everything that's happened, it's the highlight of my career," he said. "It's crazy it's the Indianapolis 500. Regrettable my face, but also my name on that car. It's just delightful."
