Jimmy Kimmel has gotten unprecedentedly candid for the upcoming cover story in Rolling Stone Magazine. This time, Kimmel takes a no-holds-barred approach in regards to his feelings for TONIGHT SHOW host Jay Leno.

"As a comedian, you can't not have disdain for what he's done," he said. "He totally sold out."

Throughout the article, in the issue released today, Kimmel slams the iconic host multiple times, heralding for competitor Jimmy Fallon to take over Leno's spot on the NBC late night show.

"[He's] a very worth competitor," Kimmel says of Fallon.

The new round of attacks just comes a few weeks after he spoke to BWW TV World and offered additional words on Leno: "Never count Jay out. He's a - he's like Jason in "Friday the 13th." He seems to pop up just when you think he's dead. He comes back to life. And he's got a hatchet!"

As previously reported by BWW TV World, Jimmy Kimmel Live is switching time slots on January 8, from midnight to 11:35 p.m., ET /10:35 p.m., CT. The move puts him in direct competition with Leno and David Letterman's LATE SHOW.

To help christen the new time slot, "JKL" has a star-studded guest list, including Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Gosling, Sofía Vergara, Ellen Degeneres, Rob Lowe, Jamie Foxx, Mark Wahlberg, Amy Brenneman, Nicki Minaj, Mindy Kaling, Julie Bowen, Naomi Watts, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, No Doubt, Brad Paisley, Bruno Mars, LeAnn Rimes and more.
