In case you were wondering what has happened to Jay Leno since the Tonight Show was sent to New York and Jimmy Fallon, you can breathe easy knowing that he’s still in California, getting alleys in amusement parks named after him for no particular reason.

But we have some bad news: He’s not in denim.

I know, I know. We don’t know what happened either? Maybe he’s gone preppy on us? Or normcore? Yeah, Leno’s gone normcore. That’s the most simple explanation.

Anyway, feel to take a stroll down Jay Leno Lane at Universal Studios when you’re in Hollywood. It’s bustling with dancing Itos, headlines featuring typographical errors, and midwestern aunts laughing uproariously.

As is the rest of Universal Studios, for that matter.

Tonight will be Jay Leno‘s final show as the host of NBC’s Tonight Show, after a more or less consecutive 22-year run. In a move particularly fitting for the host who thrived in comfort and the familiar, he will be having his first-ever guests back on for the finale. Those two are…

Garth Brooks and Billy Crystal.

I guess there’s no better way for geriatric favorite Jay Leno to go out than by throwing up a big middle finger to the younger tastemakers of today and saying “Eff you! This is how we did this shit back in ’92. Leno! What! LENO!!! WHAT!!!”

I’m not sure it will go down like that, but it’s my guess.

In case you’re more concerned with looking forward than backward, Jimmy Fallon‘s run of the Tonight Show begins on February 17th.

Regular cut-up yuckster Jay Leno has ruined another life. During a segment called “Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda,” Leno prompted three comedians to make jokes about the flight attendant accused of hiding her pet rat in her underwear during flights. The jokes implied that she and the rat are totally banging. For the record, they are not.

The Long Island woman is suing the comedian as well as The Tonight Show and NBC Universal for these jokes made at her expense which have had a negative impact upon her standing in the community and in her own marriage. The suit alleges “every time [her husband] looks at her he thinks of Defendant Leno and the heinous segment depicting her as a sexual deviant.” We can understand how thinking of Leno would ruin the mood.

That’s right. It’s the end of an era. No more headlines, no more Jaywalking, no more making fun of Kevin Eubanks virginity, night after night after night. It all ends tonight as Jay Leno steps down from the Tonight Show after a rockier-than-usual couple of years.

And up comes The Roots featuring Jimmy Fallon, allowing Leno to return to his original loves of cars and wearing denim shirts with jeans.

Fallon doesn’t step up for a couple weeks, so maybe we’ll be in for a treat with some vintage Leno in which he makes Bobbitt and Lance Ito jokes while making jokes about how much money Bill Gates has.

Goodbye, old friend.

Yesterday, we reported the lovely news that Howard Stern called Jay Leno a spineless maggot. Well, without even knowing that Leno-bashing was in season, Jimmy Kimmel spoke with Bill Carter, author of The Late Shift, in front of an audience, and, when asked what he thought of Jay Leno, responded “Fuck him” without missing a beat.

Kimmel has a history of mocking Leno both on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and on The Tonight Show, where he slammed Leno to his face in almost roast-like fashion. Seems that wasn’t enough.

Kimmel  as he prepares to go straight up against David Letterman and Leno in the 11:35 slot in January. Kimmel doesn’t appear to have been wronged by Jay Leno…he just really doesn’t like him.

Which seems to be how most of America feels. Stay tuned tomorrow, when Barack Obama is expected to call Leno an “unfunny cunt weasel.”

In a move that must have come as a total shock to the suits at NBC, America’s Got Talent‘s Howard Stern has spoken his mind and called fellow NBC-ian Jay Leno a “spineless maggot,” which is hilarious because it’s just so apt.

Here’s what the King of All Media had to say about the matter:

“I got a threatening kind of comment from one of the executives,” Stern told listeners on Tuesday, Aug. 21. “I was laughing my ass off. I said, ‘Do not tell me to not talk about Jay Leno. I will f—ing talk about Jay Leno for four hours if you tell me not to. I was done with Jay, now I’m all fired up again. F— Jay!”

Yes, yes. Fuck Jay.

It’s beginning to become clear that Anthony Bourdain and Howard Stern are kindred spirits when it comes to biting the hand that feeds them. Also, they kind of look alike. If Howard Stern starts railing on Emeril, though, I’m going to need to see both of them in the same room for confirmation they’re different people.

Howard Stern went on Late Night with David Letterman last night and did what he does best. No. He didn’t force Paul Schaffer to fart the melody of an LMFAO song. Instead, he stirred up the age old battle between Letterman and Jay Leno.

Stern told Letterman that NBC brass have tried to force the new America’s Got Talent judge to promote the program on The Tonight Show, but Stern refused, saying, “I’m a Letterman guy.” He then revealed that he didn’t realize the Late Night Wars had ended with Dave calling off any future salvos. Except, of course, for Letterman commenting that if he found out Leno had won a People’s Choice award, it would be “like hearing Manson has been paroled.”

So, war back on? (USA Today)

Let’s all live vicariously through the Bakersfield, CA, man who is suing Jay Leno for making a very bizarre joke about Mitt Romney‘s extreme wealth.

Hmm. Leno? Mitt Romney? Bakersfield? We better hurry up and get through this. I’m already boring myself.

Dr. Randheep Dhillon is filing a lawsuit against Leno for a joke that implied Mitt Romney is so rich (HOW RICH IS HE?) that he uses India‘s Harmandir Sahib, better known as the Golden Temple of Amritsar, as a summer home.

Hold on. I’ll write more as soon as I can compose myself from all this laughter. What a strange joke for mainstream America. Granted, Leno just put up a picture of a shiny Indian palace, that people could probably discern was lavish without knowing its context or name, but still. I would have thought he would have used a picture of Donald Trump‘s hair or something to get a laugh.

Dhillon claims that Leno “falsely portrays the holiest place in the Sikh religion as a vacation resort owned by a non-Sikh,” and as such is suing him for general and punitive damages. I will be the first one to admit that, yes, Jay Leno did falsely portray that holy place as Romney’s summer home. There’s not much to debate there. I will also concede that it was a “joke,” and that this law suit might be the most asinine thing I’ve heard this month.

Further, I’m also furious for this man being so stupid and wrong that I’m forced to side with Jay Leno. Goddamn you for forcing me into this position, Randheep!

“Your honor, I would like to further contend that Mr. Leno is also guilty of pulling a Thomas Crown-like ruse with the Dancing Itos. He intentionally misled us as to both the number of Lance Itos in existence and their ability to dance to funky 70′s hits.”

Oh well. At least his joke didn’t kill anyone this time.

Jay Leno, the grand marshal of California‘s annual Love Ride, jokingly asked this year’s motorcycle-riding participants to drive recklessly. Unfortunately, the “funny”-man’s crack became a reality, and one rider ended up colliding with an eighteen-wheeler, killing not only himself, but his female passenger as well.

Every year, they say, ‘Drive safe’. I’m gonna say, ‘Don’t drive safe’. I wanna see somebody go down. So it’ll be fun. I want it to be in front or behind me and see a whole row of bikes go down. Get drunk, fall off the road. We’ve all become too damn polite… We haven’t had one incident.

As much as I hate Jay Leno (and I hate Jay Leno), I’m sure he feels very bad that obviously jokes were made before such a tragedy. And truth be told, I find his off-color remarks here far less offensive than his painfully vanilla banter with bandleader Kevin Eubanks. And in all fairness, Leno has donated ten guided tours of his garage for auction to help cover costs associated with the accidents that day, which is actually a pretty nice gesture.

At about this time every years, trade publications and websites are overrun with ads from various television shows asking for “your consideration” in regard to the Emmys. And this year, like a reoccurring herpes outbreak, they are right on cue. I’m sure that for people who are actually involved with nominating shows, these ads are somewhat flattering. But for me, being asked to “consider” Jay Leno‘s fat face day after day is nothing short of torture.

But if nothing else, seeing these ads made me wonder how the networks decide which shows to promote. With the abundance of crap on television, there must be quite a deliberation process. With that in mind, I set to work harassing my dozens of insider contacts, and was given access to the following rejected ‘For Your Emmy Consideration’ ads. I hope you find them as insightful as I have.

It feels like “Conan” has been on TBS for forever now. I’m not sure how Conan O’Brien would feel about that statement, but I mean it as a compliment. As far as I’m concerned, we now have Coco in our lives again, and all that Leno stuff is water under the late night bridge. (By that I mean, the Brooklyn Bridge at night.)

So the new documentary Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop takes us back to a time many one year and a few months ago, where O’Brien left “The Tonight Show” and embarked on a 32-state tour of the country called “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.” Looks like we’re getting a close-up look at the man behind the red mop… but will we like what we see?

Yeah, probably. Director Rodman Flender takes us into the Cone-Zone Jun 24, 2011 in limited release. You can read out our review of Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop here.

Conan O’Brien has a new show. Jay Leno got his old job back, albeit in the most snakish way imaginable. David Letterman has probably dropped something crazy off a rooftop recently. Yes, more than a year later, everybody’s moved on from the late night wars, except for shock jock Howard Stern. Of course, Stern was never a part of the wars to begin with, but like the kid who tells his friend to fight a bully because his DS broke and he’s bored, Stern was on “Letterman” recently, goading him to retake the late night ratings crown from Mister Evilchin.

In the clip above, Stern says Leno is “horrible” and “talentless,” and Letterman only laughed in response. We used Google Translator to convert Nervous Laughter into English, and Letterman’s response was, “duh, but I’m gonna keep my mouth shut, cause I don’t want to get uncomfortable looks from Rickey Minor at parties.”

Stern also thinks that during last year’s Superbowl commercial, Letterman should have “finish[ed] him off” when he had the chance. I’d watch that this year. Of course, we’ve already seen the results of a full on Leno / Letterman battle, and it ain’t pretty for either host. (CBS News)

When is a hit show possibly not a hit show? When everyone is DVRing it.

Some folks are saying Conan O’Brien‘s ratings aren’t very good, because he’s getting beaten regularly by rivals Jay Leno and David Letterman. First, please take a moment to “boo” the name Jay Leno out loud in front of your computer.

Done? Good. Now, here’s the problem: “Conan” on TBS seems to always have less total viewers and often less 18-49 year old viewers than the shows of his older counterparts. However, thanks to newfangled TV gadgets, we now have “plus 7 ratings,” which counts viewers who watch a show on DVR up to 7 days after recording it (and has nothing to do with sneaking way too many of your friends into a party).

If you factor in O’Brien’s plus 7, as his William Morris Endeavor agent Rick Rosen said he does in a recent statement, then Coco is a Hit-O.

“The ratings system needs to catch up to the viewing patterns and the world,” declared Rosen, adding: “To me it’s the most significant challenge to television today.”

Conan‘s audience is younger too. On average, O’Brien’s audience is a Twitter-Trackin’ 34, compared to Leno and Letterman’s Twitter-Fearin’ mid-50s. So maybe “size” isn’t everything. Being young and gangly counts for something too. (Hollywood Reporter)

Maybe it was the riotous 741st installation of “Jaywalking” that compelled the members of Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Club to bestow their annual Man of the Year designation to walking lowest common denominator Jay Leno. Whatever the reason, this is happening. This is real. Movieline carries a quote from the geeky club that professes, “Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe, said The Tonight Show host was selected because he has ‘entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy.’”

Entertaining millions of people doesn’t mean you’re funny. It could just mean that you have an army of interns who can clip newspaper headlines, or a passing knowledge of who Octomom is. Strangely, Conan O’Brien has never received the award, despite being a Harvard alum and, you know, funny. Could the Hasty Pudding Club have an ace up its sleeve with this announcement? Will Conan jump out of a cake and bite Jay Leno in the crotch? Could this be the elaborate staging of a humo intervention? Probably not, but this news is something of a shock. I’d like to think that it’s just the result of NBC kicking over a shit ton of money to the club, rather than just a monumental lapse in judgement and reason.

One year later, Conan O’Brien has made some kind of angry peace with Jay Leno, but Howard Stern recently Jaywalked all up in the Tonight Show host’s freakish chin. The skeezy shock jock pulled no punches on an upcoming interview for CNN‘s Piers Morgan Tonight, calling Leno “insane,” which definitely means something from a man who once dressed up in ass-less spandex in front of millions and called himself “Fartman.” He also says Leno is “a crook,” which would mean Leno is incapable of coming up with his own consistently mediocre-to-terrible material.

Stern also took a big dump on Leno’s audience too:

“He’s not fit to scrub David Letterman‘s feet,” he goes on. “I don’t know how he’s beaten David Letterman in the ratings. It’s beyond my comprehension. America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”

When the Conan controversy erupted, I really hated Leno. Now that it’s all died down, I don’t know… it’s not that I think he’s even remotely amusing. It’s just that he’s so milquetoast, it’s hard for me to feel anything about him. I have no strong like or dislike of Wonder Bread, Matthew Sweet or the Toyota Camry either – they just kind of are. However, if Stern wants to spend the energy to hate him, I wish “The King of All Media That’s Satellite Radio” lots of luck. (Hollywood Reporter)

Watch Conan’s sexy new promo after the jump…

Jay Leno Pretends to Laugh Off Emmy Snub http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jay-leno-pretends-to-laugh-off-emmy-snub/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/jay-leno-pretends-to-laugh-off-emmy-snub/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 In a scene reminiscent of a sociopath feigning empathy, Jay Leno used self-deprecating humor to mask his seething rage over being snubbed at the Emmy nominations. During his nightly monologue, Leno "playfully" pointed out that while his show received four nominations, he received none. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences instead chose to recognize Conan O'Brien, the man who Leno robbed of "The Tonight Show." Sure, the entertainment news shows and the gossip columnists will claim Leno is a "class act" who is "being gracious in defeat." But watch this video for about 15 seconds, and tell me his fake smile and involuntary hand slaps aren't vain attempts to hide the urge to kill! (Deadline) See Jay Leno trying desperately to suppress his rage after the jump.

Jay Leno’s Grandiose Delusions Continue in New Promo http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jay-lenos-grandiose-delusions-continue-in-new-promo/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jay-lenos-grandiose-delusions-continue-in-new-promo/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 NBC premiered the first promo for Jay Leno's return to The Tonight Show during last night's Olympics broadcast. The results were not so good. Actually it's not entirely fair to call this a new promo. It's literally the same footage he used for his The Jay Leno Show promo with the Beatle's "Get Back" over-dubbed. Talk about polishing a turd. Get back to where you once belonged? I'll tell you where you can get back to, Leno. You can get back to, um, elsewhere. (Burned him.) Of course, Kevin Eubanks won't come along for the ride but for now we can seek solace in knowing that someone out there will ask the hard-hitting questions. Like, "Hey Vince Vaughn. What is your favorite sandwich?" For the record, the answer is all of them. Vince likes all the sandwiches.

Apparently the suits over at NBC have given Leno his 11:30PM time slot back. Conan has the choice of either taking the 12:00AM, in which case Leno's show would be a half hour, or he can also decide to f*ck off completely.
