Leno-Hatin’ Liveblog


Tune in to this space, or follow me on Twitter at 10pm tonight as I bitch and moan throughout Jay Leno’s debut in his brand-new timeslot. Will I survive? Will comedy? Let’s find out!

UPDATE: I’m glad that’s over. I was surprised how similar it was to his Tonight Show. The whole thing seemed even lazier and half-assed than usual, but they barely changed anything. Same bits. Same sets. Same awful non-comedy.

I’m not surprised. But it was nice to reaffirm that I don’t hate the guy for no good reason.

Now if only I could figure out a way to get Conan to lay off the “Celebrity Surveys.”

11:00 And so concludes “Brian yells at the TV and clutters up your feed for an hour.” The Daily Show is back! I’ll be quiet until morning.

10:59 At least Jay closed strong with an Engrish joke about poon.

10:58 He’s doing this at a desk. I was told there would be no desks.


10:48 I’m too old and can’t hear any of this music. Uh-huh. Yeaaah. What? That’s right!

10:45 I am here to mock Jay Leno, but now I want to solve Kanye’s skull puzzle!

10:43 The Office promo has given me a reason to LIVE!

10:39 Who needs Jon Stewart when Jay Leno is making pastry puns to Obama?

10:33 My Leno-hating has sent one follower packing. No time for me when there are wacky headlines to read!

10:30 HALFWAY DONE! (Although frighteningly enough, the front of the show will be better than the back.)

10:28 The Secret AND Leno? Now I have to rank the reasons why I hate Oprah?

10:26 Seinfeld is right. Robin Williams would’ve been a better fit.

10:23 Heroes: Lost for the Leno set.

10:20 Broad Musical Improv! Prop comedy for your earballs!

10:15 Was Wayne Brady too expensive for this bit?

10:14 I’d like to think Jeffrey Tambor’s disapproving look in The Hangover clip knew what a shitpile segment he was being included in.

10:13 Now back to the Mediocrity-dome.

10:12 Commercial Break: Patriots!

10:09 If I hate Kevin Eubanks, does that make me racist?

10:05 TEXTING! AHAHAHA! Oh, Leno! So topical.

10:03 No fucking Conan apology?! You chin-faced turd.

10:02 This shit looks just like the old Tonight Show.

  1. Aw, c’mon, lay off Leno. Imagine if from an early age you had a monstrously large chin. The fact he even has a sense of humour after a childhood like that is a testament to his courage and bright outlook (if not his lack of talent, although he always seemed vaguely witty to me…)

  2. You are more generous than I.

    Jay would just be another hack I’d ignore, if weren’t for the fact that he used to be funny. He consciously decided to be as low brow as possible in a shameless grab for ratings. The show is the real life version of “Ow! My Balls!”

  3. I thought “Ow my balls” was Jackass/Dirty Sanchez/Best of youtube* ? *

    (a show in Britain which inolved drinking piss, hitting defenceless animals with gardening equipment, mooning old people at the bus stop and drawing moustaches on babies etc)

  4. You’re right. Leno’s new show is more like the movie, “Ass.”

    PS – Your book is on the way! I sent it via our public option post office, but hopefully it won’t get death paneled en route.

  5. Excellent! Seeing as I live in a socialist hell-hole with no moral compass, there’s a decent chance the Royal Mail will abort it and then raise my taxes.. or something
