In a statement about the decision to move Jay Leno back to his original time slot and bump Conan to 12:05am, a spokesperson for NBC called Leno “one of the most compelling entertainers in the world today.” IN THE WORLD. Let’s see how I stack up to Mr. Leno. Here we go:
“Hey folks. Did you hear ‘The Tonight Show’ is getting moved to 12: 05am. That’s true. It is. Yeah, they’re changing the name to ‘The Tomorrow Show’.”
ZING! POW! PUNS! I must be one of the most compelling entertainers in the world too. Here’s another from the same awesome monologue of compelling, world class comedy:
“Jimmy Fallon’s show won’t start until 1:05am. That’s true. Now they’re going to call it The ‘Shouldn’t You Be Asleep? I Thought Weed Made You Sleepy’ Show with Jimmy Fallon.”
One more. Can your sides handle it?
“Did you hear about this? Something something veiled dick joke. Amiright folks? Kevin? Amiright?”
I got a million of ’em.
