Andy Richter Still Angry About Leno

There's no lack of ill will remaining in the wake of the debacle that wound up with Conan O'Brien exiting The Tonight Show and Jay Leno taking over. Appearing as a guest host on Tuesday's Live with Regis & Kelly, Andy Richter, O'Brien's announcer acknowledged that he still had hard feelings toward NBC. "Everybody said they were going to do something and they didn't," he remarked. He clearly included Jay Leno in the mix, scoffing at Leno's claim that he was merely a bystander and doing what his bosses had asked him to do. He remarked facetiously, "You know how multimillionaires are always being forced to do things they don't want to do." When Ripa asked him to reveal more about the fiasco, he pulled up short. "I've got to be careful," he said. "I have children! I still need work." He also acknowledged that he is still receiving a weekly paycheck from NBC, "so we'll see if those checks keep coming." On Monday night ratings for The Tonight Show trailed those for David Letterman's Late Night among the key 18-49-year-old demographic for the first time since Leno's return.
