(NOTE – I started to put up a picture of Jay leno, then I realized what i was doing and stopped. Instead, it’s internet superstar Shay Maria and her spectacular rack.)
People don’t generally stop being jackasses overnight, so it’s hard to believe that Jay Leno magically has some integrity and decency now, but at least one person claims he does, and they say Leno wants to walk away from NBC because of the way they’ve handled the lat night fiasco. Rob Shuter over on PopEater says…
Sources close to the former ‘Tonight Show’ host tell me Leno is furious with the way NBC has treated him and Conan O’Brien and is considering walking away from the entire mess with his head held high. “Now that Conan has made it clear he is leaving the troubled network, Jay is considering doing the same. They have put Jay in a terrible position. It looks like he is the reason that Conan is now without a job. Jay is a great guy and it’s not fair that due to NBC’s stupidity he looks like the bad guy.”
The degree to which NBC completely lost their shit is still stunning. Conan hosted ‘Late Night’ for 16 years. 16 god damn years. He’s really good. People really like him. Lots of really smart and funny people think he’s really smart and funny. But the prep school inbreds at NBC panicked and had no plan and now the third longest running show in TV history is sort of tarnished forever. How exactly does one get a job running NBC, because freaking the fuck out and making an ass out of myself seems like something I could do.
