Jay Leno Gets Heat from WGA

Oh oh! Talk show host Jay Leno keeps digging his hole deeper and deeper when it comes to the Writers strike. Leno is getting heat from the Writers Guild of America for ignoring the union's strike and going forward with his own monologues for 'The Tonight Show' for the second night in a row.

Although Jay opens every one of his shows with a monologue, the WGA says he is violating the terms he agreed to before returning to the air.

The Guild said in a statement, "A discussion took place today between Jay Leno and the Writers Guild to clarify to him that writing for The Tonight Show constitutes a violation of the Guilds' strike rules."

Do you think its right for Leno to get so much heat for writing his own material? Aren't comedians supposed to write their own jokes anyway?
Either way, Leno is the one with the last laugh because he returned after a two-month hiatus to the biggest ratings.
