Who Could Have Guessed That The Jay Leno Show Would Be A Flop?
The news of the failure of Jay Leno’s new show (cleverly called The Jay Leno Show) carried with it such shock that it has rattled some people to the core. Who would have guessed that duplicating the Tonight Show (save for the desk) and moving it from 11:30pm to 10:00pm wasn’t the programming genius that everyone thought it was? This just goes to show that the American television audience is comprised of just a bunch of jackasses. NBC did them a favor and moved the show to 10:00pm so the audience didn’t have to stay up late. But I guess they didn’t realize that at 10:00pm people wouldn’t be as sleepy which is thought to be the main reason why people think The Tonight Show is entertaining.
I guess sequels aren’t a great idea for variety shows on television.
