Howard Stern Goes Off on Jay Leno (Video)

"Jay is horrible," the radio host says on David Letterman.

Howard Stern is no fan of Jay Leno.

The Sirius XM radio host went off on Leno Thursday on Late Show With David Letterman.

"I have been studying this from afar, but I'm ready to comment on this now. You know as well as everyone in this now, Jay is horrible," Stern said, in reference to the Leno-Conan O'Brien late-night debacle.

"I'm on your team. I never understood it," added Stern.

Letterman never picked up the bait to mock his rival.

"It seemed like a good idea at the time. People responded favorably to it," he said diplomatically.
