Taking It On the Chin


I promise I'll leave the whole NBC-Conan-Leno thing alone soon, but a couple of amusing developments this morning:

First, here's something you could've seen coming a light year away: The requisite Jay Leno Image Rehab Tour begins in earnest this Thursday on -- wait for it -- Oprah. How they're gonna fit Jay's chin, Oprah's ass and both of their egos into the studio will be one for the books.

Meanwhile, NBC Uni's profits plunged 30% in the last quarter under the, ahem, "leadership" of Boy Wonder Jeff Zucker. The victory party will be held tomorrow from 11:00am to 11:15am at the Hale & Hearty Soup in the basement of 30 Rock. Get in line early.

as long as H+H is serving a little Tomato w/Chicken and Orzo it would be worth it.

I will DVR that Oprah...I cant imagine wtf there is to even discuss at this point.

If this is true than for once, the guy with the outdated NBC jokes won't feel so bad when he pulls a quote from Seinfeld out of his hat.

He's giving away what's left! I gotta go home and get a big pot!

A gift for you on this fine Monday, Chez:


Just wrote about Oprah for Salon here. I love Oprah dearly. Oprah bestrides the narrow world like a colossus. ~Heather Havrilesky

"Jay Leno Image Rehab Tour begins in earnest this Thursday on -- wait for it -- Oprah."

Followed by appearances on Larry King Live and Barbra Walters next celebrity yank-fest as soon as we can book them!

I'm thinking about half a gallon of lube, a couple crowbars, and a nine pound ball-peen hammer...
It might be easier to film them in separate studios and composite the video. they could even fill some dead air with a Making Of clip.

At least I waited 'til after lunch.
