I should have seen this coming. Did you?
I am very happy to share with you that former Tonight Show Host, Jay Leno, will be starring in a new television show, tentatively titled, “Jay Leno’s Garage“.
It will be based on Jay’s Emmy Award-winning Web series, which has more than 1 million subscribers on Google’s YouTube and more than 105 million lifetime views.
I smell a clear and present winner here. I mean, come on! There are tons upon tons of car lovers out there who love cars and motorcycles and will be all over this series like a dirty shirt.
And, Jay, dressed in his denim jeans and shirt – Mr. Casual to the max – will resonate with the viewers who view him as one the guys, just a normal person with a love for cars. No pretence here – which is why I love Jay so much. He is one of the real ones!
The show will air sometime in 2015 so you will have to wait for a bit.
But, you can catch Jay Leno on the other side of the Tonight Show desk when he guests on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, November 7th. This should be hilarious. I envision a car spoof/skit on this episode.
Good for Jay. He has moved toward his other side and completely rebranded himself. Never looking back but moving forward.
Will you be watching? Are you a car buff? I’m not, but I will be watching along with my husband who will probably be DVRing this baby like crazy.
