Everybody knows Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a big pay cut as part of NBC’s recent cost-slashing for the late-night franchise.
But we didn’t know just how big until now. The Wall Street Journal reports it was 50 percent.
That’s $15 million! Ouch.
Of the $100 million NBC hacked from the show’s budget, $15 million came right out of Jay’s pocket.
There were also 20 layoffs on the show, so don’t feel so bad, Jay. You could be out of a job. Now you’ll just have to save up for another month to buy your next Bugatti.
