Trivia

Rosie O'Donnell had this to say about the Leno/Conan Tonight show scandal: "I heard him going, 'I had five months, I wanted them to let me out of my contract.' For five months, Jay? If you got another job in the five months, all that would happen is that NBC would stop paying you, and the new company would start paying you. It wasn't the big tragedy that he made it. And his staff had five years to get another job. Meanwhile, Conan moved his family across the country, and his entire staff, to get a shot at what he worked seventeen years for, only to have it taken away by the bully on the playground who doesn't want to let go and be 60."

Keep Up The Good Work Jay Leno!
22 December 2001 | by famousgir1See all my reviews

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno is great. I have a couple of favourite US Late Night shows and Jay Leno is definitely one of my favourites and as I watch his show more and more, I begin to like to him more. His jokes are great and he's just one funny talk show host. I don't like that Kevin Eubanks though.
