I just saw a commercial for "The Jay Leno Show".

Didn't he, um, retire earlier this year?

Please tell me this is a bad dream.

I don't watch live tv much anymore (except a few sporting events), but I believe he gave the tonight show to Conan and now has a prime time talk show instead of a late night talk show. Someone else can correct me on the fine details.

Basically, he realized he wasn't ready to give up the gig and pulled a Favre.

Nice addition to the language... How long until it gets shortened to "Favred" and gets into the dictionary?

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

As some commentators (and even Leno himself) remarked: NBC is basically admitting they are unable to come up with an evening drama to fill the 1-hour slot just before the local news, so they are giving up and putting Leno there. He retired from the Tonight Show so Conan could move up, thus causing my wife and I to find something else to watch in that time slot. We've found Steven Colbert to be vastly funnier than Conan O'Brien. Actually, we really prefer Craig Ferguson to all of them, but he comes on way past our bed time.

Except that Favre himself pulled a Don Garlits.

Whoa!!!!! I think we might in a time warp. I got a news bite on my phone this morning, and I quote: "Prime Minster Mulroney has appointed B-C Court of Appeal Justice Robert Bauman as the new Chief Justice of the B-C Supreme Court. Bauman replaces Donald Brenner who resigned earlier this year."

Wait! I've just had a brain-wave! A machine! A machine that can record TV programmes so you can watch them later. I dunno, I'm thinking, maybe on discs or tape YEAH a tape machine that has like a timer gizmo so you can set it up and it will tape a TV show while you sleep.

Man, if this doesn't make me a millionaire, nuttin will. Just need to think of a name. The Auto TV Tape Recording Device With Timer. The ATVTRDWT!!!

I think it's just amazing that NBC is giving up 1/3 of their prime time schedule to Leno. It's amazing that they are just so tapped for ideas that this is the best they can do.

I also think this is a huge slap in the face for Conan. Instead of getting to take over the top late-night spot, he's still the "guy who comes on after Jay Leno" despite having the Tonight Show banner.
