“It’s been an interesting year — no question about it,” NBC‘s Matt Lauer said to Jay Leno on Thursday night. Understatement much? But, the embattled Today host told the embattled Tonight host, “I am not a guy who complains — I love this job, I really do.” Leno then brought up Kathie Lee Gifford’s letter of support for Lauer that she circulated among their Today colleagues, garnering hundreds of signatures. Lauer praised the former 15-year ABC morning host’s “very, very sweet” gesture, emphasizing, “She’s kind and she’s compassionate — and she’s been there.”
