The War on Late Night

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Staying Classy, Jay Leno!

Well, that's just classy.

Jay Leno has just announced that Conan O'Brien will be a guest on the final edition of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," airing May 29.

Given all the rancor that surrounded Leno's takeover from Johnny Carson, Leno's decision reeks of good will. There's been plenty of media-stoked buzz about Leno not really wanting to give up "The Tonight Show," but Leno's own actions haven't betrayed a hint of that.

We're still hoping David Letterman will finally come to his senses and say some nice things about Jay—and Conan—before next month's big baton passing.

Until then, Leno remains a role model for how big celebrities should conduct themselves.
