Bye Bye Jay Leno Show

When Jay Leno "retired" from the 'Tonight Show' and took a new gig at 10Pm - I told my husband there is no way that this is going to work.... it just did not make sense.... I had no desire to watch Jay at 10 - I would watch him after the news if I was still up but not at 10 when there so many other interesting things on.... The few times I flipped through the channels and saw The Jay Leno Show - I had to laugh - it was the Tonight Show..... funny - can the guy find something more original to do?

I guess the story is that NBC told Jay they would pay him "x" amount to stay on the Tonight Show until 2009 and then he had to "retire". NBC execs were afraid to lose Conan to another network - so the story goes.... give Conan the Tonight Show in 2009 and give Jay Leno is own show a little later...

Today, NBC officials have confirmed that The Jay Leno show has been canceled - the rumor is that they may want Jay to go back into the 11:35 slot due to Conan not delivering as promised... time will only tell.... Personally, I think we all need another Law and Order Show....

To be perfectly honest - since Johnny Carson left the show - I really have not been a fan of the big chin man - he can be funny but he is NO Johnny.... sad to think that John and Ed are no longer here on Earth....


  1. You mean you stay up until 10:00 and later. Wow! How do you do that?

  2. I think Jay Leno's a nice guy, but there is no one like Johnny! I really don't care for Conan.

  3. I've never been a fan either. It will be interesting to hear whether he recaptures his former fan base. I'm more of a Letterman gal myself. Or I would be if I could stay awake that long. ;)

  4. I have been confused this season with Jay Leno coming on before the news........I kept thinking I should be in bed!

  5. When I'm up that late I just prefer to read a book!
