Leno lament

So, Jay Leno premiered his new primetime talk show last night at 10 p.m. EST and...I totally forgot to watch it. I know. The debut of a show that could change the way networks program primetime and I totally flaked (I did watch the "Headlines" segment. That was pretty good. Though I'm not crazy about the new desk). But I promise to watch it this week and offer some thoughts near the end of this week. If I don't forget.
Did you watch it?
What did you think?

I watched and IMHO it sucked. Kanye West asked to speak and brought the show to a screaming halt with his overlong, inarticulate apology to Taylor Swift. Nice of Jay to let him do it but the only thing remotely interesting on the show was Jerry Seinfeld, and even he ruined it by bringing in Oprah. It was a lame joke and obviously scripted. Not an auspicious start to a good concept.

Oh yeah- the JayZ Rhianna Kanye performance was awesome - best thing of the night. And Kanye added a segment to "grown men crying" when Jay brought up what would Mom say? Kinda sad momemnt.
