UPDATE: Toldja that Jay Leno was feeling the PR heat. Now unofficial reports say that, for at least the next week, Leno will pay out of his own pocket the salaries of some 80 staffers of The Tonight Show who were laid off on Friday. Executive producer Debbie Vickers began calling laid-off employees Saturday to give them the news, and phone calls from Vickers and others were expected to continue through Monday. Better late than never, huh?
