In case you missed the $10 million tidal wave of promotion that NBC has thrown at this show, here's another reminder that Jay Leno debuts tonight at 10pm. The blogosphere buzz on this premier is off the charts, as NBC experiments with a stripped variety show at 10pm instead of the usual TV dramas.
Tonight's guests will include Jerry Seinfeld as well as Kanye West, who will undoubtedly be puking up mea culpas all over the stage after his shameful interruption on last night's MTV music video awards.
The real excitement will come tomorrow after the ratings are in. Will Jay at 10pm be a disaster or a brilliant way to bring viewers back to broadcast prime? Will 10pm TV dramas on cable reap the benefits? Tonight's premier will undoubtedly get a ratings surge from curiosity. Whether they can keep it up night after night is another story.
As they stay in the business....stay tuned......
