Back in January, we named Jay Leno as America’s top TV personality. For the first time ever, he beat out Ellen … and Oprah … and Dave… and Jon …. and Stephen - in at #3, 4, 5, 6 and 9 respectively.
My reaction now and then was “scaaaandal”– Oprah is out of the top 3 for the first time in 15 years!
But my more muted opinion is who am I to comment as I have watched The Tonight Show all of six times and The Daily Show about six hundred.
So, let me not take anything away from our reigning late-night and soon-to-be primetime king of the talk shows. Leno, give yourself some props – see clip.
