    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    My brother was talking about this yesterday. What's the deal? Did they screw him over too? I heard he's retiring with Jimmy Fallon taking his place.

    NBC is beginning to look like the television version of DemocraticUnderground.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    They are forcing Jay out. He is getting fired.


    There is also some talk about moving the Tonight Show back to New York due to tax incentives.

    If the jabs are anything like they were with Conan, this is going to be good... NBC sucks anyhow. The only time I watched the network was to see Jay ...

    It hasn't been worth the effort since Johnny left.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    The entire NBC corporation is nothing but a shill for the Obama administration. I thought things might have changed once Comcast took it over but it hasn't.

    Apparently, this is why they want to toss Leno. Off the air, he's as liberal as the rest of Hollywood, but on the air he tries to play it relatively straight so that he doesn't alienate half the audience. Fallon is much more partisan and the suits want that. The idea of the Tonight Show monologue including the occasional Obama joke offends their delicate sensitivities.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    That is one of the reason I like Jay over the rest of them. He cracks as many jokes at Obama as he does with any of them. He isn't like Letterman, Fallon, or Kimmel ...
