Video: Jay Leno Jokes About NBC Cutting 'Tonight Show' Staff

| by

Jay Leno might have had to cut some of his The Tonight Show staff and even he had to take a pay-cut, but when it came time for air leave it to Leno to poke fun at himself for the cutbacks.

Monday night during his monologue he told the audience,

“Welcome to ‘The Tonight Show,’ or as Comcast calls us, The Expendables!”

“We’ve consistently been #1 in the ratings, and if you know anything about our network, that kind of thing is frowned upon.”
