Jay Leno Show

No desk? Sorry, that ain't gonna work looking at the bottom of people's shoes. Johnny must be rolling over in his grave.

Think I'll wait and watch it on the computer at 10:30 central (11:30 eastern) when it should be on. And the best part will be the ability to fast forward. Should make for a nice 10 or 15 minute show each night.

there have been many successful shows such as this where there was no desk.

If memory serves me well, I believe Tom Snyder had quite a run and showed his shoes every night. Dick Cavett didn't use a desk. Mike Douglas the same. I believe Jack Paar didn't use a desk but not sure.

a desk is a crutch. It separates the host and the guest (which, in the case when Crispin Glover was on the David Letterman show was a very good thing) but notice you can still see Davids feet because of how he was setting at his desk.

YouTube - Crispin Glover on Letterman

anybody want to guess what kind of drug he was on that night?

Not a furniture guru but didn't those chairs look like something from the bargain section of Kmart?

I find Jay Leno to come across as genuine, fun, entertaining -without being dopey. He seems to hit it off with all age groups. I have always liked him. I wish him more success.

well, the rumor mill suggested acid. Others suggest he was merely acting in character for whatever movie or show or whatever he was in around that time. I have seen enough of his interviews and performances to seriously believe it was most likely the acid suggestion.


gunguy: not that young (51) and going to bed at 9:30 is just not going to happen. 12:30 is closer to reality and sometimes a few hours after that but I probable get up much later than you do. I get to sleep in until 5:30. How about you?

Nap, we should midnight coffee. I'm usually up until 1 or 2, then get up at 6:30 - 7:15. And I feel good most of the time! Five brothers and two sisters the same way. My wife calls us the "insomniacs"

I need to see this new Leno show.

I forgot to tune in! I bet that has happened to other people also, since it is a new show that has not been part of their regular evening viewing routine. I don't watch Conan as he is too whacked for my taste.

Well..saw part of it...ok..but too much monolog.

nap yep 51hjere too, but being semi-retired..I kinda zone out and hit the hay shortly after the sun goes down (or there abouts) and get up when it comes up. Prob due to no job that I HAVE to be at.

One of the best things about being retired is when you wake up in the morning you know you don't have to get up unless you want to.

The more one sleeps, the more tired you become. And it's easy to get lazy. You might even yawn more, out of boredom.

One advantage of what I just said is you will live longer, relative to your perception of time. The day may drag. Me?: I'm trying to build Rome, every single day. And here we are now headed toward the Christmas season again - just because I caused it to myself by being too busy.

Can't imagine having to shovel again. I'm getting tired of it. Also getting tired of not being able to lolligag outside, 10 or 11 months out of the year, at least, in comfort, working on my car under a shadetree somewhere. 5 months of that junk, sometimes, around here.

Never liked Leno but I respect his success.
Letterman appealed to me in my 20's but now I want to gouge my eyes out when I ever I hear him.
There hasnt been a decent replacement since Johnny.
Carson had class, witt, intelligence and new how to appeal to all audiences regardless of political persuasion.
Carson's show had talented people like McMahon, Doc and Newson.

IMHO.......these late night jokers don't have a clue and can only appeal to a limited audience and can't separate their own politics from their crappy material.
Conan is nothing more than a cross between Carott Top and Letterman.

Shwew......

Mackey,

So who do you like to watch, or what do you like to watch on tv?

There's no one on the late night show circuit that appeals to me so I watch Family Guy and King of The Hill and go to bed.........yeah, I know they're crap to but for some reason I enjoy them.
