I’m not a big fan of modern-day Jay, but the teaser looked good. It reminded me of the old Jay. Plus, regardless of my feelings about Jay, the episodes I like best are the ones with Jerry’s old-time friends-- Letterman, Larry David and Michael Richards especially. The ones with people like Seth Myers just don’t do much for me.
I’ll check this out when I have a few minutes to spare.
The eps really are better when he has a long-time relationship with the person, though I appreciate his trying to give more exposure to people he feels are under-rated. While I liked the ep with Jay, my favorites are the one with Larry David, when he hangs out with Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, and (surprisingly) the one with Sarah Silverman. Her impersonation of her mother giving the movie times was hilarious.
And holy crap, I had no idea how rough the body looked on the Gmund coupes - how the hell did they sell any?
That was an interesting and funny episode. I liked Leno’s joke about the hole in the ground. He’s been completely unfunny for so many years on The Tonight Show that I just figured he’d used up his ability to be funny. Their riffs on each other and on the coffee were gold, Jerry, GOLD!
