Jay Leno


After my highly critical review of the premiere episode of The Jay Leno Show, I think it’s important to acknowledge that Leno has typically been a bastion of decency and fairness when compared with truly odious comedy talk-show hosts such as David Letterman and Bill Maher. For a good article on Leno’s comic persona, see John Nolte’s appreciation of Leno at Big Hollywood.
