What’s the deal with stars and their cars? Most often than not, they’re not riding what we usual folks are driving around town. With their astronomical incomes, these stars do ditch the chaffeur just to be snap driving their very own exotic ride.
It’s official, Jay Leno is now a Harvard man, well maybe not, but he has been named the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University.
The drama troupe is the oldest undergraduate program of it’s kind in the United States and they annually honor an individual who entertains the masses.
According to the group Jay Leno was chosen because he has:
“Entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy….”
I was hoping they’d put Conan O’Brien on the cover, but I guess he’s had his fair share of media attention for the past few weeks. It’s Jay Leno’s turn. Entertainment Weekly featured the Jay Leno Show host on this week’s cover.
Their cover blurb, “TV’s 50 Biggest Bombs Ever” caught readers’ attention in the midst of NBC’s late night shuffle hullabaloo.
“Sometimes TV networks, producers, or actors do something so stupid, it makes you ask: What the heck were they thinking?” wrote the EW staff. “In that spirit, we decided to take time out to honor (if you want to call it that) television’s biggest bombs and blunders. We’re talking the decisions both bad (hey, let’s give Felicity a haircut!) and bizarre (XFL, anyone?). And at the top of our list: NBC’s decision to put Jay Leno at 10 p.m. It destroyed not only five hours of primetime programming, but also the local newscasts that followed.”
Sounds like an intellectually juicy read to me. Grab your copy at your nearest newsstands, if you haven’t already.
Rival David Letterman has been “enjoying” a lot of extra publicity because of his extortion case. Jay Leno just couldn’t let that one go, and said in his own show that he is also a victim of extortion. How do? He poses this question: “How do think NBC got me to do a 10 o’clock show?”
Now it is kinda funny, isn’t it?
