Perhaps. Maybe he needed to do it to survive. When he first started on the Tonight Show they were ready to give him the boot. IIRC, he hid in a closet at an excecutives' meeting and found out what they were trying to do with him. I don't know what all went down with booting him off the Tonight Show but it seems like it was NBC's decision, not Leno's.
