TThe critics couldn’t wait to pounce on Jay Leno, could they?
Heaven help us all if someone comes up with an innovative and creative vision for Prime Time Television!
Let’s continue to stick to the boring and mundane television series in the 10:00 P.M. time slot, forcing many to watch reruns of Frasier and Seinfeld or in my case, to watch previously aired recordings of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on the Star network.
I thought the premiere episode showed tremendous promise and vision.
Yes, nerves and timing were, at times, problematic for Jay and his crew, but, for a spanking new show the overall concept was excellent.
I think that everyone forgets about the process when analyzing any new show. Did you really like the first episode – or first few episodes – of Seinfeld? The timing was off, the character development was flawed, but, over the course of time, it became a brilliant landmark in television history.
Jay Leno is one of the classiest entertainers to ever grace the entertainment industry. His possesses heart and passion for his craft and, yet, still manages to stay centered and true to who he is as a person. He is a proud son, loving husband and generous to numerous charitable causes. Let’s cut the guy some slack! He deserves better!
