The Jay Leno Question – Why Is He Still On TV?
Oh you must hate me for the simple reason that we don’t get Jay Leno on our television boxen over here. There was a vote in the Scottish Parliament in 2003, banning this perma-unfunny, Hannity-haired laughter-vacuum from our screens for the sake of our children and our collective sense of humor. The money we saved with people not going to hospital with Leno-generated mind-shits more than pays for our additional heating costs, and keeps the deep-fried Mars Bar industry ticking over.
But but but but – Leno’s in trouble now. Big trouble. Big trouble in Little Leno, with Kurt Russell and that tart from Sex and the City pretending to be Chinese, which is deep trouble. With Leno being moved up into a hour when more people could watch him drool piss from that hole above his manga-chin, a lot of people decided that watching him drool his piss wasn’t all that good, and they switched off and did other, better things, like grinding their feet into toe-paste or throwing themselves into the path of an oncoming threshing machine.
And now, because of Big Trouble In Little Leno, it looks like Conan O’Soledad Brian is in trouble too, because he’s on the same channel or something, but is lesser for some reason, and now he has to get a job collecting cans and working with old people. None of this – nor popular electric news bucket TMZ’s feverish announcements – deal with the more important question – why is Jay Leno on TV anyway?
Your thoughts? Type ‘em. Type ‘em good.
(Yes, a lot of this is based on information I’m picking up second-or-seventh hand from other blogs, but I thought I’d ask, because I’m truly dumbfounded as to why he was let onto TV in the first place.)
