Look out everyone. Jay Leno is back in Prime Time but  in an exciting and very personal new format called Jay Leno’s Garage

As many of you out there already know, Jay loves his cars and monocycles. It has been a life passion for him and he is proud of his stellar collection. 

The LA Times wrote a great piece about his new show, which is an extension of his very popular YouTube series of the same name: 

“Jay Leno’s Garage” is an extension of his YouTube series of the same title, which is filmed in Leno’s Burbank garage, which contains more than 300 vehicles spread across three warehouses, from Lamborghinis worth more than most family homes to steam-powered contraptions that look as if they were built for Disney fantasies. The channel has more than 1.4 million subscribers.

“After seven or eight years, it became the third biggest automotive show in the world on YouTube, right after ‘Top Gear,'” Leno said. “So I went around to Discovery, History, A&E, CNBC: ‘Anybody interested?’ I like CNBC because of the demographic involved. It’s kind of a high-end thing.”

I would encourage you to read the entire article as you will gain further insight in to what makes Jay tick. 

But, before you read the article, set your DVR or tune into CNBC for Jay Leno’s Garage on Wednesday, October 7th at 10:00 PM Eastern.  It should be one wild ride (pun intended).
