There’s someone else who needs to learn to let go: Jay Leno.
I have NBC on my TV right now, and I couldn’t help but notice the permanent “Jay Leno, Monday Sept. 14th” advertising on the lower left side of my screen. And I found myself asking, Does anyone really care?
I used to watch Leno sometimes when he was the host of The Tonight Show. I didn’t think he was the best thing since sliced bread, but I also didn’t really have any problem with him. But when it came time for him to retire, I was ready for him to retire. Plus, I really like Conan and I was looking forward to him taking the earlier spot (you know, so I could maybe watch him every once in a while).
When it was announced that Jay Leno would not only be coming back to TV, but coming back EVERY.DAMN.NIGHT.OF.THE.WEEK, during primetime no less, I found myself giving that idea a big ol’ W-T-F. Because seriously. No one wants to watch Jay Leno every freaking weeknight at 10 p.m. I normally avoid speaking for everyoneontheplanet, but in this case, I think it’s appropriate.
Bottom line: I give it until November sweeps, tops. Leno’s a goner.
P.S. What is it with these people and not wanting to retire? If I had their money, I’d have retired at least 10 years ago. Too bad I can’t strike a deal with them–They work, I’ll play. Everyone wins.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 33 and have been married to Michael for seven years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
