David Letterman rips Jay Leno again

CBS host already threw a few jabs earlier this week

David Letterman just can't get enough when it comes to jokes about Jay Leno.

Only two days after mocking him on his 17th anniversary at CBS, he returned to his favorite subject Thursday with some sly swipes at the rivalry that took place between Leno and Conan O'Brien earlier this year (see video at the Huffington Post).

What did Letterman like best about that? "I loved that it has nothing to do with me," he quipped.

Then he proceeded to skewer Leno for projecting an average-Joe image despite his luxury automobile collection. "Leno has more cars than Hertz," he said. "A regular guy with 600 cars--explain that!"

Could Letterman be sweating the fact that Leno has been soundly beating him in the ratings all summer even as "The Tonight Show" experiences record audience lows? THR's James Hibberd had this analysis today of the late-night ratings war.
