Former announcer Andy Richter of the canceled Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien slammed NBC Tuesday while guest hosting on "Live with Regis & Kelly."
Regarding NBC: "Everybody said they were going to do something and then they didn't."
Regarding his family: "I've got to be careful, I do. I have children. I still need work."
Regarding Jay Leno: "But it's very frustrating, when somebody says — and especially when they're on videotape — and say, I'm going to take this No. 1 show and hand it over and hope the next guy makes it the No. 1 show, and then doesn't."
Secretly regarding Jay Leno: "He says I didn't have any choice, they wouldn't let me out of my contract. You know how multimillionaires are always being forced to do things they don't want to do. I've calmed down about it."
