Jay Leno may already be regretting his decision to jump to a 10pm show.

“Would I have preferred to stay at 11:30? Yeah, sure. I would have preferred that,” he told B&C about ‘The Jay Leno Show.’ “I think it’s too soon to say whether I regret anything or not.”

And what does he think of his fellow late-night host David Letterman’s sexual liaisons scandal with his staff? Leno told the trade publication he “wouldn’t trade places with [Letterman] now for anything!” but added he doesn’t agree that Letterman’s reputation will be damaged.

“If it were me, it would kill me. I’m the guy who’s been married 29 years,” he said. ” But Dave has never pretended to be Mr. Moral America, he’s never set himself up that way. He’s not a hypocrite.”
