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.

  1. That should make for a great program. I’ve never seen his internet program but Jay has appeared regularly on a show called “My Classic Car” with Dennis Gage for many years. Besides it’s regular schedule of visiting car collectors and car shows around the country, that program spends a lot of time in Jay’s garage and they play with his toys both in the shop and on the road. He’s always happy to let Dennis experience the thrill of driving a Stanley Steamer or his way-cool electric car from the early 1900s. Jay used to drive these cars, and many others, to work at the NBC studios!

    The great thing about Jay, as you were saying, is that he’s not just a guy with a lot of money who is able to buy a lot of expensive stuff to fill his garage. To the contrary, he and one other man do the majority of the work on all of his cars, trucks, motorcycles and random machines and he is very capable of schooling you on anything is his sizable collection and operating all of them like a pro. All of this in his easy going, engaging regular guy manor. When he hangs out with car or bike guys, he’s just Jay.

    This is where his heart is. I hope the show is a success.


  2. Gene – thank you for expanding on my thoughts on this topic. I, as well, hope this show is huge for Jay because he deserves it. He works incredibly hard at his comedic craft and is so passionate about autos. He always puts 200% into everything he does.

    I think this will attract high ratings, attracting millions out there who just want to “hang” with Jay and indulge in their similar passion for cars and motorcycles.

    For me? – I just want to see Jay back on TV. I miss him.


  3. what is that at the edge of his lips?? is that a photograph malfunction? and injury?


  4. I’m going with grease or a shadow resulting from up lighting from below his signature gianormous chin.


  5. OMGoodness. I didn’t even notice until Hunter pointed it out. Good catch, Hunter. Yes, Gene, it must be a shadow or something. The way he smiled? Can’t wait to see the show.
