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. (The Wrap)

Howard Stern Calls Jay Leno A ‘Spineless Maggot’, Upsets Fragile NBC http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/howard-stern-calls-jay-leno-a-spineless-maggot-upsets-fragile-nbc/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/howard-stern-calls-jay-leno-a-spineless-maggot-upsets-fragile-nbc/#comments Mon, 27 Aug 2012 20:51:11 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=250566 I never knew him to be one to speak his mind at the expense of decorum. How odd.

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.

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.

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.

Those of us who weren't able to surprise our girlfriends with tickets to "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour" (what's Jay Leno's excuse?) may be in luck today. Remember how you didn't really watch "The Tonight Show" while he hosted and he was subsequently fired? Well, now you have the option to ignore a documentary about the upcoming tour too.We don't know what exactly to expect from the documentary but the tour itself is rumored to be off the wall with surprise guests and O'Brien's guitar (unfortunately). The ousted host's attempts to please "The Tonight Show" audience were lackluster due to the forced sanitization of his material so it will be fun to see him cut loose from the fetters of the network and crabby, old people. Always driving so damn slow and buying up all the Werther's. (Deadline)

Since refusing the network's attempt to eff him over, he went on to rip them a new one night in and night out on his ill-fated Tonight Show. Then he walked away with $44 million dollars of what can only be described as "F*ck You" money. A clause in the contract precludes him from returning to television screens until September of 2010 but the show must go on. There's news today that he's kicking around the idea of doing live shows across the country. Of course, he has all that aforementioned "F*ck You" money so why would he care about a few concert dates? Well, it would capitalize nicely with all the people who were suddenly with Coco, and that would help him secure a deal with another network. There's no word on what elements from his NBC shows he would bring along with him, if any at all. It would be great to see him do a few of his crazier bits and really let loose. I just hope that he doesn't break out his guitar. Oh crap. He's totally going to break out his guitar, isn't he? (Page Six)

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.

Hours ago, he finalized his exit deal with the network that will pay him $32.5 million, executive producer Jeff Ross $4.5 million, and his staff $8 million. On top of that, he convinced the network to cave on their mitigation clause, meaning he can set up shop elsewhere and keep NBC's payout. Ouch. No word on whether he'll be able to bring his characters.To make matters more costly for NBC, on last night's show he announced that for the remainder of the week he will introduce “new comedy bits that aren’t so much funny as they are crazy expensive.” Much like Evan Almighty. To kick things off, O'Brien "purchased" a Bugatti Veryon, the world's most expensive car, and dressed it like a mouse while pumping "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones. Not a funny bit (but still funnier than Leno) but a very costly bit. So costly in fact that NBC has yanked it from Hulu and NBC.com for fear of paying music royalties. Luckily I decided to forego a day's worth of my exorbitant blogger pay to bring the clip to you. Enjoy! (NY Times)

Everyone is pretty amped up over the whole O'Brien/Leno debacle, and the hosts presented a unified front by expressing their disdain for the floundering network in their own special ways. David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, and even Conan himself didn't hold back. I've posted a couple of my favorite clips below from last night's roast of NBC. The first one shows Conan playing a game of Deal or No Deal with Howie Mandel in an effort to decide his future. The second is Jimmy Kimmel's monologue, where he decided to impersonate a certain big-chined "funny"man.

Conan O'Brien is mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. The current Tonight Show host has released a statement telling NBC they can go suck it, in so many words. He refuses to host the Tonight Show after Jay Leno, as he believes shifting timeslots would compromise the integrity of what he considers the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting.

And the fires from Heaven will rain down upon them, and only your chin will survive!

Conan O’Brien is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. The current Tonight Show host has released a statement telling NBC they can go suck it, in so many words. He refuses to host the Tonight Show after Jay Leno, as he believes shifting timeslots would compromise the integrity of what he considers the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. It was NBC’s plan to put Leno on at 11:35PM, followed by Conan at 12:05PM, but now that Conan is threatening to break his contract, the PeaCOCK is going to have to think again.

I imagine now that Conan has told NBC what’s what, FOX is gathering its gaggle of lawyers together as I type this.

Check out Conan’s press release in its entirety after the jump.

 

People of Earth:

In the last few days, I’ve been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I’ve been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I’ve been absurdly lucky. That said, I’ve been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn’t the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn’t matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record I am truly sorry about my hair; it’s always been that way.

Yours,

Conan

Yesterday we reported that Leno might be replacing Conan on The Tonight Show, and now today we've learned it's not so much replacing as it is violently nudging. 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. If Conan tells NBC brass to go screw themselves then Leno will get a full hour. So much hostility. Stop fighting, mommy and daddy, you're doing harm to the children!I suppose poor ratings for both shows can be blamed on this trist, or the fact that old people find Conan awkward looking and obnoxious, but it really all comes down to one super villain...
