Leno and Kimmel Join Forces

NBC and ABC announced that Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel will appear on each other’s shows this Thursday.

Both have returned to the air without writers and the WGA is pressuring SAG members not to appear on their shows. So, it only makes sense that they would help each other out.

Jay is still in hot water with the guild for writing his own monologue. The WGA still hasn’t said if it will punish him and NBC continues to fight back.
The story was made even more interesting last week when reports surfaced that Jay had a meeting with the WGA West President and other guild members to let them know he would be writing his own monologue. Sources say the WGA said they were going to “give him a pass” because of his support for the strike.

I’m guessing that the WGA’s deal with Letterman’s company and NBC’s continued hard anti-strike stance made them change their mind…

“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs at 12:05 a.m. (Locally on WCHS-TV at 1:05 a.m.) on ABC…
