December 2008 Archives
- Despite this being my second stay at the Luxor, I'm still lost as to where to go.
- Vegas is really dead in December. Ain't no-one around.
- Got propositioned while on the casino floor. Hot African-American woman, but unlike Gov Blagojevich, I don't approve of "Pay to Play". What's interesting is that she came up to me at the slots.
- Won $200 on nickel slots, then promptly lost $50 of it on $1 slots, but learned my lesson and pocketed the remainder. It could have been the hooker too (see above). No I am not 80 years old.
In what has to be one of the dumbest moves in entertainment history, NBC signs Jay Leno to do a nightly show at 10 PM Eastern, once his Tonight Show run is over. I've never really understood the ratings that Leno gets. I am a David Letterman kind of guy. He is far more talented. I do understand that Leno has his audience, I'm just not part of it. But to move him to primetime on a broadcast network?
I would understand if they were putting him on one of the cable arms NBC-Universal owns. But to eat up the 10 PM hour on NBC seems to be shooting themselves in the foot. Or should I say leg for Plaxico Burress? That hour is valuable airtime. What happens to the various incarnations of Law & Order? L&O mothership and SVU are currently occupying the 10 PM slot. For good reason too, as some of their topics are a bit gory or racy for earlier timeslots.
A Leno "Daily Show" at 10PM would work if he was a little more serious. Many people say Stewart, Colbert, and Letterman are excellent interviewers when it comes to the serious stuff. I think there is only so much Will Smith and Angelina Jolie we can take. To watch every weeknight would be horrible.
