Jay Leno perfectly sums up what is wrong with late night TV
March 12th, 2019 under Jay Leno, TV News. [ Comments: none ]


I used to enjoy watching late night television, but not anymore. Ever since Donald Trump got elected, the shows focus way too much attention on him. I watch comedy to get a break from reality, not to be bombarded by it again.

Today when Jay Leno was Today, they asked him if he misses doing the show in this political climate. He told them he does not. He hates that people have to know your politics now. He came from the Johnny Carson school on the issue which means we don’t know what side he is on. He enjoyed getting hate mail from both the Democrats and the Republicans.

Back when he was hosting The Tonight Show, “Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb.” Then he said that doing jokes about the current president is harder. He gave an example, “‘How’d you like your president with a porn star.’ Well, now the president is with a porn star. Where do you want me to go with that?”

Leno then said he would like to see more civility on late night TV. He is not the only one. To me, The Late Show is unwatchable. I want less political humor and more humor. We already have way too much Trump as it is in our lives, we don’t need anymore.

Jay Leno’s very scary crash
June 27th, 2016 under Jay Leno. [ Comments: 1 ]


Jay Leno crossed something off of his bucket list and it was almost the last thing he crossed off of it. For his CNBC show Jay Leno’s Garage this Wednesday at 10p, he rode in the 2,500 HP powered Hemi Under Glass driven by stunt driver Bob Riggle at Irwindale Speedway and something went horribly wrong. Riggle hit a turn too hard and the automobile flipped over several times before finally coming to a stop. When they did, both men simultaneously asked if the other one was OK. Thankfully both men were uninjured, but I am sure not unsoiled.
Since they had cameras rolling on the outside and the inside, you can see just how scary and how scared they were as they kept going around and around and around.
I guess that is two things he can cross of his list. Going for a ride on two wheels in the Hemi Under Glass and crashing in a race car.
Seeing what happens when you crash in one, makes you wonder why regular cars aren’t built as tough as them. Food for thought.

Is Jay Leno now working as a valet?
June 8th, 2016 under Jay Leno. [ Comments: none ]


It has been a few years since Jay Leno decided to leave The Tonight Show and we haven’t seen him around as much as he we used to. So what is the former talk show host up to these days? Recently there was video of him uncovered working as a valet at the Magic Castle. Is that how he is making money now?
In a way yes. What? He put on a disguise to trick the patrons at the iconic Hollywood spot to promote the return of his CNBC show Jay Leno’s Garage on June 15th.
Would you trust the car enthusiast as a valet? I’ve driven behind him a few times and he is a really good driver. Even in cars that are way older than him.

Jay Leno takes over the Tonight Show monologue
October 7th, 2015 under Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: none ]


Jimmy Fallon told a joke on The Tonight Show yesterday that caused him a little discomfort and he needed to stop. Since the show must go on, he wanted to see if there was anyone that could fill in for him. Luckily, Jay Leno was available and took over the monologue.
This was not the Leno we used to know, he was a lot more risque and I liked it. Too bad he couldn’t have been that way when he had the show the first and second time. Wonder if the third one will be the charm. Joking, that ship has sailed. Or has it?
Actually, it is amazing how much late night television has changed since Leno left the show just a year and a half ago. All because of Fallon, if you think about it.
