Just a day after Jimmy Kimmel put on gray wig and prosthetic chin to mock Jay Leno on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", he accepted an invitation to guest on "The Jay Leno Show". Kimmel will be reading out Leno's "Ten at Ten" list on Thursday, January 14.

The announcement from NBC comes on the heels of Jimmy's monologue about Jay Leno's move to 11.35 P.M. and Conan O'Brien's open letter that rejects it. Kimmel as Leno said, "Hello, hello, my name is Jay Leno and I'm taking over all the shows in late night." Leno then gave Kimmel a call on Wednesday to tell him he found the comedy bit funny and extend an offer to Kimmel to appear on his show.

Leno himself gave a comment about Kimmel's performance as him during his monologue on Wednesday night. "All the late night host are having great fun with this debacle," he said referring to his switch to the old hour. "Last night Jimmy Kimmel did his show dressed up as me. I was going to come out dressed as Jimmy Kimmel ...but I realized I do not have enough black shoe polish here at NBC to get my hair that dark."

Jimmy Kimmel Live isn't always good, but that was a brilliant 1 minute and 44 second mockery of Jay Leno and his talk shows! (including Cleto fake laughing like Kevin Eubanks, the instruments played at punchlines, etc.)
