Jay Leno makes meal of NBC bosses in monologue

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jay Leno is keeping up a comedy assault on his NBC bosses even after being treated to a make-nice dinner.

During his monologue Friday, the "Tonight Show" host asked his Burbank studio audience if they'd heard about his "alleged feud" with NBC.

Leno started taking potshots at the network this month amid reports that NBC plans to replace him at "Tonight" with Jimmy Fallon.

According to a NBC transcript from Friday's taping, Leno said that after dinner Thursday with a "bunch of NBC executives," they offered to make things up to him: He and his wife are going on an all-expenses-paid Carnival Cruise, he joked.

In February, passengers endured five nightmarish days on a crippled Carnival ship in the Gulf of Mexico.
