Don’t Cry for Me, Downtown Burbank

Filed under: Television — Charlie Summers @ 6:24 pm

From The New York Times’ ArtsBeat: Don’t Cry for Me, Downtown Burbank

From this highly-recommended comment piece: “…amid all the public vilification of Jay Leno and the NBC Universal chief executive Jeff Zucker, no one seems to want to trace this slap fight back to where it began: the 2004 deal in which Mr. Leno agreed to step aside as “Tonight Show” host in five years.”

Indeed, Leno acted (as I mentioned in a previous post) as a lame duck for five years, and still maintained the number-one position in late night, something O’Brien couldn’t maintain. Blaming Leno for this disaster is foolhardy…blame the morons at NBC instead.

    YES! That’s what I’ve been saying since this whole thing started. Jimmy Kimmel tore Leno apart. Not Leno’s his fault..of course it’s NBC’S stupidity. I’m not even a fan of Leno but I sat in front of my TV with a quizzical look on my face wondering why they were skewering him.
