Jay Leno Is Slightly Bitter About Conan's Emmy Nominations

Passive-aggressive humor does not suit you, Jay.



This is the title sequence that Firefly really deserved.



If you forgot to watch Joel McHale and Sofia Vergara announce the Emmy nominees, you should watch it now. They are hilarious together.



BuzzSugar got a little Glee gossip out of Julie Andrews during this interview.



So, this one time, Leonard Nimoy accused William Shatner of stealing his bike.



Also!

... Weren't some of those Emmy nominations just a pleasant surprise?

... These Emmy nominees are a little closer to an EGOT!

... Jason Segel was really funny on The Today Show this morning.

... Here are some of the best and worst TV dads of all time.

... The whole LeBron James free agent TV event thing was pretty ridiculous, eh? Kind of like a throwback to those endorsement-saturated days gone by.

... What the heck is the TV hat?

... The Office's Mindy Kaling keeps chaning her mind about who should be the new boss. Now she wants it to be Dwight.

The original Firefly intro gives it the western feel, i actually really like it. Their trailer was awful though, Fox never gave it a chance.

I think it's wrong to say that Jay is upset about Conan being nominated, he's upset at not being nominated himself. He actually supports Conan as is seen in a bit where he holds up a "Team Conan" sign.

The people who created that Firefly intro remix must've worked for Dollhouse because it had the same cheesiness.

Really? if Firefly deserved that then you might think Airwolf was a greast show. Fireflys intro is excellent and this one is taking the show to an early 90s crappy style. Hope creators didnt waste more that half hour making this intro, or they are 14 and playing with Premier or some editor and its their first work.

Jay's joke didn't seem that bad. It was pretty funny.

I definitely like the actual Firefly intro better. It is so beautiful. This one makes me think of the 80's. Haha, loved hearing about all of the fun on the set of Star Trek. :) Go Conan!!

So what you're saying is that Firefly should have had the intro of a shot-in-Canada syndicated series?

I noticed the lack of Simon in the Firefly intro too! Plus, the original was way better, it completely conveyed the show's tone and space-cowboy theme.

That Firefly video was alright; but didn't anyone else notice that whoever made it left out Sean Maher as Dr. Simon Tam?

The Firefly theme wasn't very good, I like the original better. That Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner clip was very funny though and I laugh at Jay being mad about not getting nominated.

Some people actually thought Leno was funny when he made those Emmy digs at himself. It was soo clear that he was upset about it, the whole passive-aggressive thing too. I think he felt bad because this was a big blow to him, and for once I actually felt a little sorry for him.. But still. I'm with CoCo.

No thanks to the Firefly sequence. I loved the Firefly theme. And I have to agree, 80s is the first thing that came to mind for this one.

I don't like that Firefly Opening sequence...Maybe if the show aired in the 80s...

The original is far, far better.

That "Firefly" title sequence? No thanks. Still want the original, since it fits the series theme. That on up there too - uh modern - if anything.

I liked the Firefly the way it was. It would have been a different show with this opening. I saw Jason Segel on Regis and Kelly today. He was really funny there, too.

I know I'm dumb, but could someone fill me in on what show that Firefly sequence was referencing? It was fun, but I like the original one. It's got a great sense of meloncholy to it. Also, it includes Sean Maher as Simon Tam, so it automatically wins.

There are some shows and people that really should have been nom'd.

Joss's version is far more honest, it was cool though.

Why anyone thinks Leno is funny beyond me... he just annoys me.

and while that Firefly opening sequence is cool. The one Joss gave it feels more right for the show. It gave it that western in space feel that is what the shows about.

I'm just glad 24 got nominated.
