2 Jimmys insist there’ll be no late-night rivalry

– The longtime feud between late-night hosts Jay Leno and David Letterman is the stuff of legend and, apparently, so yesterday.

The two Jimmys – Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon – agree there’s no rivalry between them.

Both were honorees in New York on Tuesday at a gala recognizing Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.

“I feel good about it. We’re very friendly. I know people expect us to dislike each other and say bad things about each other but that will never happen,” said Kimmel, 45, who agreed that making nice is a good thing.

“We’re like (vocalist duo) Peaches & Herb. I’m Peaches,” he laughed.

They’ll face off in the ratings next year when Fallon leaves NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and replaces Leno as host of “The Tonight Show.”

Fallon, 38, said, as of now, things won’t change much when he switches to “The Tonight Show.”

“We do a great show now. I thank Jay Leno for being awesome and still being No. 1 because without him I wouldn’t have a job,” he laughed.
