Besides being totally selfish, is LENO just THAT clueless?!1 But see KIMMEL's zingers in Post #1

He said that while this brouhaha has being going on, "Conan's ratings have actually gone UP!1 So, YOU'RE WELCOME!1"


Uh, ...


Then, like the victim role will play out for him, "Sarah PALIN has been signed by (Faux) as a correspondent(sic, instead of "commentator"). And (Faux) says if she doesn't work out, just blame LENO."


Since KIMMEL did a send-up of LENO the other night, it could be interesting that KIMMEL (or is it a send-up?) will be on later for the question and answer bit.

1. So it's the real KIMMEL. 10 questions
Edited on Thu Jan-14-10 11:02 PM by UTUSN
1) Secret to doing a LENO impression: party Sylvester the Cat, part Curley, plus Dudley Doright chin.

2) Worst idea from writers: Doing you was my idea.

3) Worst guest: Omarosa. She left before she came out. I think she's homeless now.

4) Who to interview: You and Conan together. Wait, Conan won't do it, how about you tomorrow night, there're lots of questions to ask you about this. (LENO: "OOoo, tomorrow's not good for me.)

5) Best prank: I painted my aunt's house orange and green. No, wait: One time I told a guy that 5 yrs from now I was going to give him my show, then took it back. I think he works at Fox now.

6) Order anything off the t.v.: Like NBC ordered your show off the t.v.?!

7) Most # of lap dances: My mother's watching. Wait, the show's cancelled, nobody's watching.

8) What do you fear most: Volcanoes. Tidal waves. I fear the network will move my show to 10 o'clock. Remember that thing where you and Conan were on together and you passed the torch...?!1

9) Anything you want to host: The Tonight Show, then you take it back. Listen, Lucy, I don't fall for that trick.

10) You came here because you want to keep me happy in case I switch to ABC: You have 8 million dollars, please, leave our shows alone!1

2. I just watched that on Hulu. It was brutal lol.
Kimmel really was ripping into Leno to his face. I almost felt bad for him but then I realized he's super rich.

3. I got the feeling LENO, who reportedly by that airing had already signed the new deal,
was going through the motions of taking his lumps to mitigate the coming, outright dumping of Conan. Iow, almost all of us are well on the road to hating LENO forever, so he's doing some pre-penance, some pre-damage control, to self-deprecatingly get us off of the total hate.

LENO was gritting his cringe while it was going on.

4. Since it's kicked up, CORRECTIONS to typos:
Under 1): "partLy" not "party".


Under 10): "800 MILLION dollars" not EIGHT million.
