  • How "the culture" shapes perception.

    Ann Coulter comments on the Wall Street Bailout bill being pushed by the Democrats. She ends with a joke told by Jay Leno showing two things: a) the writers for Jay Leno are incredibly stupid b) the writers for Jay Leno are part of the culture that informs the uninformed. In 2008, Goldman employees gave a record-breaking $1,007,370 to the Obama campaign. This year, the "securities and investment" industry has already given twice as much money to the Democrats as to the Republicans. ABC News reports that "the five biggest hedge fund donors all gave almost all their donations to...

    Sarah Palin's secret "laugh track" machine at Jay Leno show: makes Adam Lambert fans like her, too!(An "after action" report from FReepers who were actually in the studio audience.) In perhaps the worst possible development for the radical left since the discovery of Karl Rove's now infamous "Weather Machine," Governor Palin's recently exposed top secret "laugh track" machine appears to also have even more dastardly powers than were originally feared. In addition to altering the space-time continuum, and reprogramming the master computers at NBC – to cause laughter during Sarah's monologue to appear where none had been before, and send...

    Wow. This audience loves her and only grows to love her more as the interview rolls on. About ten minutes in she shows more guts than any politician maybe ever by agreeing to make her stand up debut … on The Tonight Show … in front of a Los Angeles audience. What poise. If Sarah Palin can win over this audience in this way in one of the bluest regions of the country, if I were Barbara Boxer I’d be pretty worried right now. Something’s in the air. Kudos as always to Jay Leno for being the consummate gentlemen. During...

    A year-plus later, "Sarah Who" is now "Sarah Wow." Like President Reagan who rose from the wreckage of the 1976 battle with then-President Gerald Ford to capture the White House and recapture the soul of America thirsting for change and clarity, Jay Leno will host and America will witness on Tuesday night Sarah Palin as a true heartland comeback. Here are some terrific ways to prepare to watch Sarah Palin: • Prepare your TiVo, DVR, or video recorder at least a few hours in advance so that there are no last-minute problems. • Have a notepad so that you can...

Whether you like Palin or not she and Leno will be entering into millions of American homes on Tuesday night as The Tonight Show re-launches with its old host.

    tvbythenumbers ^ | 3/2/10 | Robert Seidman
    Updated: in the local people meter markets Leno was twice as popular with adults 18-49, scoring a 2.0 rating vs a 1.0 rating for Letterman. In the metered market houshold ratings between 11:30p-12:30a Jay Leno’s return to The Tonight Show dominated Leterman and Late Show. Leno had a 5.4/14 (household rating/share) to Letterman’s 3.0/8. Sure, Leno’s first night back (and perhaps first week or two back) is likely inflated by a post-Olympic halo, but the early indication is “all is forgiven.”

    Jay Leno made news when he announced that Sarah Palin will be among his high-profile guests when he returns to The Tonight Show next week (aka "The Jaysurrection"). Now David Letterman's lineup for next week pits Mitt Romney against Sarah Palin on Tuesday night -- and the ratings may well provide clues on which probable GOP presidential contender may be most popular. The week's lineup for Letterman's Late Show are: MONDAY, Bill Murray; TUESDAY, Mitt Romney; WEDNESDAY, Jerry Seinfeld and Tom Brokaw; THURSDAY, Tom Hanks; and FRIDAY, Matt Damon. Leno's first week of guests are: MONDAY, Jamie Foxx, Olympic Gold...

    I just heard a radio ad for Jay Leno's stolen back "Tonight Show" which resumes March 1. He's proudly advertising a Tuesday segment that makes fun of Sarah Palin misspeaking, running clips of her anytime she trips over her tongue. Apparently Jay has very publically chosen sides for the 2012 election. Apparently he also never misspeaks either. His entire disasterously bad interview with Oprah was one giant malaprop--either that or the man is an inveterate liar and sociopath. Sarah Palin ought to be making fun of him. As we know, the man is a big baby who couldn't just walk...

His first night back isn’t particularly star-powered: He’ll have Jamie Foxx and Olympic Gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn on the couch, with a musical performance by Brad Paisley. But on Tuesday, Leno is sure to get the eyeballs with an appearance from Palin, who will be joined by Olympic Gold medal snowboarder Shaun White. On March 3, the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore will help with Leno’s Jaywalk All-Stars segment while Chelsea Handler and...

After turning down the Sunday shows this past weekend, this will be his first time on a national television program. He'll field questions in the “Ten @ Ten” segment, in which the guest commonly appears via satellite, to answer ten questions posed by Leno.

    David Letterman looked like "either Dinty Moore or Paul Bunyan's son." Or so recalls Jay Leno from his 1996 book on his first meeting with Letterman in 1975. It was a fateful encounter that formed an initial partnership and friendship. But now, in retrospect, it's a tragic relationship in which the repercussions from the fallout between the two are still being felt 35 years later, changing late night television forever. And, unknowingly, altering the fate of a then-12 year-old boy living in Brookline, Massachusetts -- Conan O'Brien. Letterman, on a January 19 episode of Late Show, referred to Jay Leno...

    The White House Correspondents’ Association is apparently not on team CoCo. The WHCA, which hosts the popular annual dinner where the press corp and various celebs get to mingle with the President, announced today that Jay Leno would be emceeing this year’s dinner. Not great timing to be sure: an unpopular comedian joking about a suddenly unpopular President. Probably not the sort of mood lightener Obama was hoping for. According to CNN Leno was asked to fill the spot — perhaps made most famous by Stephen Colbert back in 2006 — prior to the whole debacle with NBC. Not everyone...

An announcement could come as early as today and will settle, at least in public, the acrimonious maneuvering among the comedians, their respective camps and NBC in the wake of its decision to shuffle Leno from prime time and back to his late-night slot, which O'Brien has occupied for the last seven months. In the last few days, representatives for O'Brien and NBC resolved key issues, including how long O'Brien...

Their negotiations continued with NBC. Unlike the network which wants a resolution by end of today, the agents-lawyers-managers are in no hurry to accept what NBC is offering to end this late night crisis and the resulting PR nightmare. Team Conan is banking on it getting worse, not better, with...

(AP) -- Rosie O'Donnell said Thursday that it's time for Jay Leno to step aside for Conan O'Brien and ''not try to flatten his tires before he even gets going.'' NBC is seeking to move Leno into his old 11:35 p.m. ''Tonight'' show time slot and push O'Brien past midnight again, after Leno's prime-time show failed. O'Brien is balking at the move after only seven months at ''Tonight,'' and a negotiated exit from NBC seems likely. O'Donnell, talking to reporters while promoting an HBO documentary,...

NBC executives on Thursday discussed a scenario that would include a half-hour Leno show at 11:35 p.m. EST, sending "Tonight" to 12:05 a.m. and Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" to 1:05 a.m., a person familiar with the discussions said on condition of anonymity over a lack of authority to address the issue publicly.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spilled the beans to late-night host Jay Leno that he's nominating Republican Sen. Abel Maldonado to fill the vacant lieutenant governor seat. Here's how Schwarzenegger described his pick, according to the show's transcript: "He's a terrific, loyal man that has worked very hard in public service. But he's also into bipartisanship and postpartisanship, so he can cross the aisle. He makes decisions based on what's best for the people rather than what's best for the party. He has helped us, many times, pass a budget, which was very important. And he comes from an immigrant family. They...

    THE Jay Leno Show" has struggled mightily -- but Mondays have been extra-tough. "Leno" averaged just over 4 million viewers at 10 p.m. Monday -- nearly equaling its all-time low of 3.9 million viewers set on Monday, Nov. 2. This past Monday, "Leno" was up against original episodes of CBS' "CSI: Miami" and ABC's "Castle," which averaged 14 million and 11 million viewers, respectively. Both shows creamed "Leno" in the advertiser-coveted demo of adults 18-49. The show, hosted by the former "Tonight Show" star, started off with a bang in its September premiere -- pulling in over 18 million viewers...

    Six weeks after Jay Leno moved to primetime, NBC's wait-and-see approach to his sinking ratings is testing the patience of affiliate stations across the country. The Peacock network maintains that putting Leno on five nights a week will pay off when fresh episodes of his show go up against reruns on other networks, but so far Leno has been a disappointing lead-in for the late newscasts that follow him. After a strong start, his program at 10 p.m. is down sharply from its premiere week and is drawing one-quarter fewer viewers than its scripted predecessors a year ago. This is...

    First lady dishes on Leno about her husband's most annoying habits First Lady Michelle Obama dished on Jay Leno's NBC show Friday about her husband's most annoying habits, sarcastically quipping hubby Barack is "perfect" before she spilled the beans about how he angers her the most. Leno asked Michelle on-air Friday what irritated her the most about her presidential partner, igniting Michelle's dry sense of humor -- she deadpanned that he was "perfect," then revealed it's his top-notch tennis game that drives her crazy. "He beats me quite often," Obama answered. "It gets to be pretty annoying." Michelle continued to...
  • Barack and Michelle Obama are so out of touch with normal Americans that it’s scary and weird, too

    Barry and Michelle Obama really cannot—or they just plain refuse to—relate to the average American. The more I rack my brain trying to figure it out, the more I come up with one conclusion: The Obamas, in my opinion, are hardcore, liberal elitists who will never, can never, and won’t ever empathize or sympathize with the issues of the average American…try as hard as they may in putting on a show to that effect. It being a Friday night and me being a happening guy and all…I decided to stay in and watch the liberal network known as NBS (no,...

    Kudos to Jay Leno for bringing the first real mockery of President Obama from the night show crowd. And Leno does a fine job. (Video is well worth the 60 seconds it takes to watch.)

    Appearing on the late night talk show, the president compared his skills at bowling to those of a handicapped athlete. Asked by Mr Leno, who hosts the show, if he had been practicing bowling in his Washington office, Mr Obama joked that his highest score was the extremely low total of 129. “That’s very good, Mr President,” Mr Leno interjected in a sarcastic tone. Mr Obama then countered that the score was “like the Special Olympics or something”. The comments, which will inevitably call into question Mr Obama’s sensitivity skills, came as he attempted to diffuse escalating criticism over his...
