Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher Sing to Jay Leno About Rivalry with Letterman: Watch Now

Originally posted 01/30/2014 11:15AM

When Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher drop by your show to sing to you, you know you're not going to get a sentimental rendition of "The Best Is Yet to Come."

The pair said their goodbyes to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Wednesday in swinging fashion, serenading the departing host with a song that thanked Leno for "the memories you gave," but mostly for "your rivalry with Dave [Letterman]" and "the beating that you gave."

The pair aren't referring to some previously hidden parking-lot dust-up between the two iconic late-night hosts, but rather, as Maher sings, the fact that "you crushed him in the ratings, and you'll take that to your grave!"

Jay Leno on Leaving The Tonight Show: 'I Can Go Out on a School Night'

Originally posted 01/29/2014 03:00PM

There's one thing Jay Leno is looking forward to doing when he leaves The Tonight Show on Feb. 6 – going out on a weeknight instead of staying home and working on the following day's monologue.

"I can go out on a school night, which I've never been able to do," he said during an interview set to air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday. "I've never been out in 22 years on a Wednesday night. It's like, 'Oh you're doing something wrong. You have to go home and write jokes every single night.' "

While he's 63, Leno isn't retiring anytime soon. Instead he's going back to his roots as a stand-up comedian.

Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard's Low-Key Wedding: Courthouse I-Dos, Then Sandwiches

Originally posted 11/22/2013 11:30AM

No Hollywood wedding planner. No big dress. Just a couple of kids on a Thursday morning at the courthouse, with an impromptu officiant sealing the deal.

That's how Kristen Bell described her October wedding to husband Dax Shepard, which went off happily and without the usual celebrity pomp and flourish.

"We wanted the lowest-key day possible," Bell, 33, told Jay Leno on Thursday of her quiet nuptials. The couple had dated since 2007 and became engaged in 2010.

George W. Bush Gushes About Granddaughter on The Tonight Show

Originally posted 11/20/2013 12:45AM

George W. Bush may have stepped away from the political spotlight, but he seems to have won the popular (audience) vote – on Tuesday's The Tonight Show.

The former president stopped by to chat with Jay Leno, matching wits with the host as he unfurled a series of off-the-cuff zingers that left both Leno and his audience in stitches.

Case in point: When the host asked why he finally accepted Leno's invitation to return to the show (this was his fourth appearance on it), a deadpan Bush, 67, slyly jabbed at Leno's upcoming exit from the show.

"You're about to head out to pasture – just wanted to see what you looked like before you got to the gate," Bush cracked.
