Time to Jay Walk Outta There!

lenoIsn't Jay Leno embarrassed at this point?  Why does he feel the need to go on and on and on and on? I may not be a big fan of Leno, but I've always respected his work ethic and his "good guy in such a rough business" mantra.  Not anymore. The Tonight Show has been on television since my father was about 4 years old.  Why does Jay Leno think he's bigger than such a rich tradition?  Why didn't he retire from late night television when he passed the torch to Conan? I understand his love of performing.  He still does tons of stand-up gigs around the country all year long.  I've heard the only vacation he takes is the amount of time his staff has off and that he would take no vacation if possible.  Why not do a special 2 hour live show on NBC when Saturday Night Live is a re-run? There's an old expression in showbiz: "Always leave them wanting more."  In the case with Leno, he's left me wanting a whole lot less.

I am with you brother. Not that I am worried about Conan or his family going hungry, but he and his crew did just pick up and move across the country after 17 years in NYC and five years of planning. Jay was in a position to tell NBC to kiss off. He could have told them that if they did not want to continue his show, they could just pay him out the balance of his contract. But no - he has to crawl back to the comfort of his little late night niche, where his contrived, over-prepared interviews have failed to entertain all but the feeble minded for years. I commend Conan for having the fortitude to stand up to NBC, and wish he and his crew the best of luck wherever they may land.
