I'd watch that.

Leno is a moronic, unfunny hack.
 
2013-10-31 09:10:33 AM
I thought he recycled all of his jokes?

Or maybe he just runs them into the ground.
 
2013-10-31 09:10:47 AM
WTF happened to Leno? He looks like Marlon Brando and Walter Mondale had a baby. And peed on it.

BizarreMan: I thought he recycled all of his jokes?

usually he recycles them from other comedians, not himself.

Leno apologized to his audience and then added, "and what's the deal with airline food?"


Also, I'm no fan of Megyn Kelly on Fox, but I wouldn't mind bathing her.

/with my tongue.

It doesn't really matter since his audience is either asleep or an old man's asshole winking at the screen as the Magic of Cialis lets him bang his disinterested wife

Remember when Leno didn't suck?

/wait... no... he always sucked

Insert recycled Family Guy quote here.

That barely even qualifies as a joke. It's more of a lame quip.

I'm fairly certain the bathwater would freeze the moment Kellys baby cannon touched it.
 
2013-10-31 11:00:57 AM
This is funnier than the time when a Farker inserted a recycled Family Guy quote.
 
2013-10-31 11:01:58 AM
Big deal. Carson was recycling jokes for years near the end of his run. I don't know how many times I heard him say some variation of "Here in the US, we wait in line to get into fancy restaurants. In the Soviet Union, they get in line for A POTATO!" "POTATO" was always the punchline to his "Oh look, the Soviets are POOR!" It was kinda funny once. Once.
 
2013-10-31 11:01:58 AM
What's with the artice calling it an "anti-Obama" joke?  Isn't it just a joke?

My wife's name is Kelly, so I'm getting a kick out of this post.

Note that her now infamous walk to chat with the analysts in person on election night has some pretty good behind footage. As in its's a pretty good behind.

Conan's ratings are a joke.
 
2013-10-31 11:09:54 AM
You know, it is so fashionable to take a shot at Jay Leno. Look, the fact is the man is out there every bloody night with fresh material and he's charming.
 
2013-10-31 11:11:08 AM
I don't know why, but I always feel like I'm watching a Disney/ABC infomercial when I turn on Kimmel. He has the occasional funny sketch, but the show is about as stimulating as a local telethon.

I stopped trying to watch Leno years ago. For me, late night is about Conan and Fallon; though Conan has lost some mojo and Fallon hasn't completely gelled yet. Fallon will perfect his craft one day, though. Can't wait to see Seth Meyers take a turn.

Figures.

Leno dares to do some Obama jokes, so all of the Obama ball lickers in the media are out to get Leno now.

Hell, Letterman did the same Bill Clinton intern jokes for ten years. Every night. Learn something about how comedy works before you critique it, Kardashian followers.

Number one in rating crushing every one else's numbers, but of course you're right and everyone else is wrong.
 
2013-10-31 11:28:20 AM
Leno isn't really to blame here.

What happened is that Tonight Show Joke Writer #5823 accidentally stumbled onto the same joke that Tonight Show Joke Writer #11892 did a few months back. It happens.

Strictly speaking, I suppose Leno should have remembered telling that joke before and skipped it, but I can hardly blame Leno for not watching Leno.

I don't watch much late night talk, but to me it seems like Craig Ferguson feels most like the old late late Letterman.

Just make sure you tape a flat piece of cardboard over the news ticker, otherwise you still might let the derp in.

Leno has money.
Leno has fame.
Leno has ratings.

One thing Jay Leno will never get:  The respect of his peers.

Nemo's Brother: Conan's ratings are a joke.


Not knowing how The Daily Show compares, I wonder if comparing a cable talk show to network talk shows is a fair comparison.  Just asking the question.
 
2013-10-31 11:55:46 AM
Oh, and who are these people keeping track of last night jokes?
 
2013-10-31 12:04:44 PM
Megyn Kelly isn't the only hot looking blonde out there, so no reason to pay attention to the Fox Newscaster anyways. She still holds the same conservative views as O'Reilly and Hannity even if she's not as forceful with them.
 
2013-10-31 12:06:29 PM
He even leads 18-49? I can't even picture an 18 year old who wants to watch Jay Leno. What went wrong in his or her life to turn out that way?

Altair: One thing Jay Leno will never get:  The respect of his peers.


Strangely enough, you're not exactly right about this. Yes, he's never going to get any respect for reciting dishwater-strong lowest-common-denominator  Tonight Show bullshiat jokes. And yes, the way he farked over Letterman (allegedly) and Conan (in full view of the public while raping the corpse) means he's lost most of the friends he ever could have had in the business.

But the amazing thing is, people who knew him from his stand-up days all say that he was a comedian's comedian, an actual master of the craft. And the reason we never see that on the  Tonight Show is because when he's doing his actual, funny comedy style, he's bluer than a Smurf on Viagra.

So it's not that he's a bland unfunny hack who knifed his way into a great job that's wasted on him, it's that he's a hilarious motherfarker who knifed his way into a great job he's wasted on. Or so they say.

I'd imagine it's the tail end of it bringing the ratings, 35-50, and most of them are watching shows which aren't rated (internet? Etc)
 
2013-10-31 01:23:05 PM
Holy crap! A comedian told the same joke twice? What an outrage!!

Face it, the only reason this is even "news" is because someone dares to do Obama jokes.

Late night talk show hosts rehash material every day. Letterman has made a career out of it.
