I didn't think it would be a hit. But I expected it to fare well with his regulars. The Jay Leno Show, that is.
Leno took his act to prime-time television earlier this year after giving "Tonight" responsibilities to Conan O'Brien.
O'Brien's show is doing great. Leno's new prime-time show, well, isn't.
Now Leno says he wanted to stay in the "Tonight" slot, but NBC wanted to move him to prime-time. He also told the AP he'd go back to the "Tonight" show if NBC would let him. Fat chance.
I was never a big Leno fan. Always watched Letterman. O'Brien is a good TV show host, but I guess I just don't get his humor. The big surprise to me, though, was Conan's "Late Night" replacement, Jimmy Fallon.
Fallon's show keeps getting better, and I never though I'd be saying that about a Fallon show.
