Jay Leno Takes on Prime Time

Monday, September 14, 2009

"The Jay Leno Show" premiers on NBC tonight at 10:00 pm EST, and planning for the prime time premiere has gone on for months. We look at the lead up to the launch of a new late-night show with someone who has done it several times: Mitch Semel, network executive and  president of Semel Media. We also speak to TV blogger Delaina Dixon of delainadixon.com to find out if the buzz around "The Jay Leno Show" is justified.

Jay's monologues are funnier than Dave's or
Conan's, and he deserves to re-inherit the Tonight Show. He skewers public figures, especially politicians, expertly and hilariously.
