Jay Leno Signs Off ‘The Tonight Show’ for the Last Time in an Emotional Farewell … I Bid You All A Heartfelt Goodbye (VIDEO)
Last night Jay Leno signed off ‘The Tonight Show’ for the second and last time. In a gracious show of class he handed off the reins to Jimmy Fallon.
I must admit that no one did the ‘Tonight Show’ better than the late Johnny Carson, but Jay Leno did a damn remarkable job taking over for a legend. Last night he said goodbye. For 22 years Leno provided his monologue, Jaywalking and witty sense of humor in which he was #1 for 20 of those years.
“I don’t like goodbyes. NBC does, I don’t,” Leno joshed as he took the stage in beautiful downtown Burbank. “Well, tonight is our last show for real. I don’t need to get fired three times, I get the hint.”
My person opinion is the suits at NBC are making a colossal mistake. But then again what’s new, we have already seen this act before when they tried to replace Leno with Conan O’Brien. Speaking of Conan, he showed his lack of class last night by responding to Leno’s departure by saying on his TBS show the following, “the Olympics start airing tonight on NBC. It’s very cool. That’s right, NBC has the Olympics. It’s a big deal. NBC will finally get to show somebody who is OK with passing the torch.”
One of the best things about Leno is he got humor. Now remember Leno is a huge Lib, but he was an equal opportunity joke maker no matter what side of the political spectrum you were. In his monologue last night one of his jokes was, Oh great, now I don’t have a job and I have to sign up for Obamacare.
NBC best hope that Jimmy Fallon is a ratings bonanza because their is no way Leno would come back for a third time. Jay Leno gives one final heartfelt, emotional goodbye.
Jay Leno quoted Johnny Carson by saying … “I bid you all a heartfelt goodnight.”
How ironic that Jay Leno has never been funnier and NBC is parting ways with him …
Barack Obama is now the nightly fodder for late night comedy and the other night was no different. Jay Leno just shreds Obama’s falling job approval numbers and compares them to that of Ricard Nixon. OUCH! But wait, Jimmy Carter says, that’s not fair, if he had a 5th year, he is sure that he would be lower, ha, ha, ha!!! Many feel that Obama’s second term is Carter’s third term in office.
President Barack Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released Tuesday.
Obama’s approval rating in the poll stands at 43%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.
Jay Leno Says: President Obama Promised Iran ‘If You Like Your Uranium, You Can Keep Your Uranium’ to Get Them to Sign Nuclear Deal
Exactly why is NBC getting rid of Jay Leno, he is hysterical …
Late night talk show host Jay Leno has finally figured out how President Barack Hussein Obama got Iran to sign the nuclear agreement. He said during his monologue, “Well, apparently what got the Iranians to sign this deal was the promise from President Obama. He told the Iranians, if you like your uranium, you can keep your uranium”. Sadly, if this matter was not so serious and dangerous to the security of the United States and our allies, it might be even more funny.
From Washington Free Beacon:
JAY LENO: Well, apparently what got the Iranians to sign this deal was the promise from President Obama. He told the Iranians, if you like your uranium, you can keep your uranium. So, I don’t know. Well, President Obama’s approval rating is now down at the lowest point of his presidency. It’s down to 37%. In fact, here’s how bad it’s gotten. You know the Thanksgiving turkey he’s pardoning this week? The turkey said, no pictures. I don’t want pictures. [ laughter ]

- The former president looked good, relaxed and he’s not a bad artist!
UPDATE I: Check out the VIDEO below of what Dana is referencing in his daily commentary. Leno brought up GWB’s recent health scare. Laura Bush responded that she was scared; however, W said that he was not. Leno then hit him with the money line and asked, “You got Obamacare?” and the audience erupted in laughter. The best part is that W and J actually got a good, honest chuckle out of it. GWB had some interesting things to say about dealing with the tough times.
