Talking with "View" co-host Joy Behar backstage at "The Tonight Show," Jay Leno said he expects ousted host Conan O’Brien to be back in the late-night fray to compete again, CNN reports.
Behar asked Leno if he’s still upset about Conan O’Brien, prompting Leno to say that he feels he and Conan "got screwed."
"This is TV. The reason how business pays a lot of money is, when you get screwed you have something left over," he said.
"I don’t quite get why I get beat up over [the move from 10 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.]. I know people don’t really understand sort of how this business works. It’s all numbers. You know, the affiliates wanted us back, so we came back," he added.
