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.
10:52 HEADLINES! YAY! I LOVE TYPOS AND GIVING MY BRAIN HUMOR-AIDS.
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.
