"what we're seeing now is vintage jay."

David Letterman was noticeably hoarse last night on his show, probably from cackling like a mad man as NBC and Jay Leno continue to screw up beyond all comprehension and get eviscerated by every branch of the media. Dave spent an entire 6 minute break giving a beating to NBC and Lenos plea on Monday that people not blame Conan for this mess (video of that under the cut). And last night, as he led guest Chelsea...

nbc is run by retards

Last night David Letterman read some quotes from Dick Ebersol, who has been an exec at NBC since the early 70‘s and head of NBC Sports since 1989. He's mostly known as a fuckup who doesn't have any sports in his sports department. Under him NBC lost NASCAR, the NBA, MLB, and just a few months ago lost all college football bowl games until at least 2015. The NFL had been on NBC since 1939, but he lost them in 1997...

MEGAN FOX - is not engaged to Brian Austin Greene, despite weekend rumors that she was. It was all a misunderstanding. A little torture and he changed his tune just like that. (wonderwall) AVATAR - made another 41 million this weekend, rose to third all time in US box office history ('Titanic' made 600M, 'Dark Knight' 533) and is now an absolute certainty to become the highest grossing movie ever. Another absolute...

jay leno is a man of his word

NBC must be some kind of money laundering operation because Jeff Zucker has done nothing but fuck up (graph, graph) since taking over 10 years ago (it's in last place among the 4 networks, ratings have dropped for 8 straight years). Now reports say Zucker has been "nasty, arrogant and threatening" towards Conan, who "has acted like a baby" since NBC announced they were moving Leno back to 11:30. But at least Leno has...

TIGER WOODS - is donating $3M in medical care and supplies to help those affected by the earthquake in Haiti, and he may give even more to a similar charity run by Wyclef Jean. In a related story, I got a new cashmere blanket and slept like a little angel last night. Actually I guess those two stories arent that related. (fox sports) WYCLEF JEAN - Remember that story about Tiger Woods donating money to Wyclefs Jeans...

kimmel > leno. again.

When Jimmy Kimmel began his show earlier this week by doing an impression of Jay Leno and insulting him for 5 minutes, seemingly in defense of Conan O'Brien, Leno knew what he had to do: he had to have Kimmel on his show. And so that's what he did. Oh and it went just great. Question 5 LENO: Whats the best prank youve ever pulled? JIMMY: ...I think the best prank I ever pulled was, I told a guy, 5 years from now, I'm...

jay leno says he'll quit NBC too, is a bad liar

(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...
