Jay Leno's top target during his two-decade tenure as NBC's "Tonight" show host was Bill Clinton.
    
The comic has cracked a total of 4,607 jokes at the expense of the former president.
    
The Washington-based Center for Media and Public Affairs counted and catalogued nearly 44,000 jokes Leno made about politics and public affairs during his time at "Tonight," which ends Thursday.
    
The center's director, Robert Lichter, said Tuesday that Leno loves politics and scandal - and Clinton generously provided material on both accounts.
    
Second on Leno's list - with 3,239 jokes at his expense - was former President George W. Bush.
