  • Penultimate show.

    It's Thursday night and Jay Leno has but one show left before he walks away from the late night game for good (and goes to a primetime slot). The monologue was one of the weakest in some time, but as the host pointed while scoffing at the crowd for their disgruntled response to a Michael Jackson joke, he'll be gone by the weekend.

    The comedy bits and pieces segment showed that The Tonight Show has been a unique offering on the now extravagant late night menu, but has remained consistent in its approach of covering topical issues, no matter how controversial they might be. While not always funny (some sketches fell down right flat) you can always expect something interesting from NBC's top talk show.

    Billy Crystal offered some amusing moments, but I found it peculiar that they spent nearly five minutes discussing his spring training stint over a year after it happened. The song was a fitting goodbye and a thank you for all the jokes he has told us over the years. Hopefully tomorrow's episode is even better.moreless
