Jay Leno’s Back!
Well, he’s back on the Tonight Show and better than ever!
Jay Leno’s first night back, after nine months in Oz, was this past Monday (March 1, 2010) right after the Winter Olympics and it turns out it was all a bad dream… at least that’s how he began his return, with a skit straight out of the Wizard of Oz… in bed, surrounded by his former cohorts, and Betty White!
Jay killed on his monologue, but I think he is at his best and funniest when he is out meeting people on the street, as with his JayWalking, or in this case, showing up unannounced at people’s homes in search of a desk.
Of course, he had to try out the desks… right there in these people’s homes… as surprise guests dropped by, like comedian Adam Corolla at one house and Randy Jackson from American Idol at another. The look on the homeowners’ faces, the screaming that followed, and their digital photo snapping as Jay interviewed Randy in the Byron Family’s living room… priceless!
What more can NBC ask of the man? (Ahhh, to leave his number one show so that they can give it to some younger star who demands it? Oh, wait, that was just a bad dream!)
Way to go, Jay. And welcome back!
