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.
