someonelse: ZeroCorpse: People still watch broadcast television?

If it's not on Netflix, Amazon, VUDU, Crackle, or other online sources, then I don't see it. I certainly haven't watched a late night talk show since the 1990s. All they are is advertisement for the guest's current projects, anyway. They're like an hour-long commercial.

Hey, it's that guy.


I'll top that.  I don't have TV, Computers, Internet, I live in a deep dark cave without any modern means of communication.  Like the Daleks, I run completely on Static Electricity and Hate.  For fun I crawl on my hands and knees to the top of a mountain, and fling myself off!  I land on ZeroCorpse's mother while yodeling Eine Kleine Nachtmusik through a dead harp seal.  I give her a cookie and go to bed.

The Martian Manhandler: jaytkay: The Martian Manhandler: I can tell you why I hate Jay Leno - because I look like him. Not just 'kinda like him if you squint', but close enough that people have been telling me that I look like him on a regular basis for the past 20 years.

In college, I worked selling tickets at a tourist attraction near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, and I'd get people stopping to tell me how much I looked like Jay Leno at least once a week.

There are agents who specialize in people like you.

Unfortunately, I'm about 25 years younger than he is. Even worse, I was trying to be a real actor at the time, not just a look-alike.

Seems like you are the one that needs to "get over it". Accept that most comedy fans dislike Leno, no one's telling you to not watch the show anyway.  .

His sold out comedy shows around the country would beg to differ.

And chef boy-ar-dee is the best selling pasta. Clearly that denotes superior quality.

Quality is rarely a prerequisite for ratings success.

so, do you have a point to your ravings or what? You don't watch Leno, but he's clearly doing something great because he's the best, but he's only the best because the people watching him don't necessarily want the best, but there is a majority of those people out there tuning in, therefore, amongst people who aren't necessarily looking for the best entertainment (which are the majority of people) he is the best thing out there because so many undiscriminating people think so.

Are you having a stroke?

You really think being able to sell out clubs means most comedy fans like and respect him? Even Andrew Dice Clay or Sinbad can sell out venues on name recognition alone. Finally, when Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia were huge most comedy fans still hated them, just like Leno.



Finally my turn. CSB time boys and girls. So once I was pumping gas on Topanga Canyon on my way home from work and I look over and there's Sinbad at the pump next to me putting gas in his suv. He looked at me, I looked at him. I said Hi. He said Hi. We finished pumping gas about the same time. He exited on the side street, and I got back on Topanga Canyon and drove home. Fistbump.

CSB -

I was on 'Jaywalking' once.  The summer after I graduated HS I went with a friend to visit his uncle in LA, and while walking around Universal (I think) a camera crew jumped us and suddenly Jay Leno is in front of me asking me how many stars are on the US flag, so I of course answered '52'.  He asked if I knew what they represented and I of course told him 'one for every state', he then did a smart-assy 'Oh wow, what were the last two added?' and I looked at him like he was an idiot and said 'Alaska and Hawaii of course'.  It wasn't till after I signed the waiver that my buddy informed him I told him there were 52 stars for 52 states, at which point it was all too late.  My excuse is I panicked and was thinking cards in a deck.

DeltaPunch: I saw some of Leno's monologue once when I flipping channels many years ago. I was surprised by how sexual his jokes were, a la " Did you hear this? (Insert good-looking actress name) went camping last weekend... I wouldn't mind camping with her, if you know what I mean".

Cue audience laughter.

It was strange.

Carson once had sex with Fano's mother....it was so impressive, I let him have sex me.

So there I am, three months pregnant and old Carson shoves me down the stairs. He bought me a drink after and bought a round of golf for me and Bob Hope.
