Jay Leno can’t have a mirror in his crib, because, he like he just finished hitting the whiskey bottle threw on some jeans with no draws, a shirt, said “F**k my hair”, and rolled out to the Pebble Beach Golf Link. It’s not like we expect poor Jay and his 29 chins, to be stuntin’ on ‘nem, but damn. More Leno and Arnold Schwarzenegger when you Read the rest of this entry »

A couple of days after the Writers Guild of America strike began November 5, Jay Leno told some 80 of his idled staffers that they need not worry about their finances.
Leno was so adamant about paychecks being safe, many didn’t bother looking for new jobs even though NBC was forecasting layoffs.
So it came as quite a shock Friday when the entire staff was told that they were not only out of a job but also that they weren’t guaranteed of being rehired once “The Tonight Show” returns.
“Some people were crying. Some people were screaming,” said one employee speaking on condition of anonymity.
NBC declined comment on the firings beyond a brief statement that it had “regretfully informed the people who work on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ and ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien’ that their services are not needed at this time due to our inability to continue production of the shows.”
According to several staffers, tensions at “Tonight Show” have been mounting for weeks, and matters weren’t helped by news that other late-night hosts have been preserving the jobs of their nonwriting staffs or paying those who had been laid off. O’Brien confirmed Thursday, for example, that he would pay the salaries of at least 50 nonwriting “Late Night” staffers out of his own pocket on a week-to-week basis.
Some “Tonight Show” insiders are angry at Leno, because of an upbeat conference call he held shortly after the WGA strike began.
“He was on speaker phone,” a staffer said. “There were 80 of us. He told us not to panic. He said to trust him. He said: ‘I can’t get into details, but nobody will miss a car payment or lose their house. We’re family. Trust me. I’m going to take care of this.’ But that was the time we should have been looking for new jobs.”
Dag Jay Leno..well it was probably out of his control and his pockets were probably starting to dwindle and we can’t have that now can we? If we are both on a boat and you falling off but holding onto me should i let you just pull me off and kill us both??? H to the NO! But messed up for the people who lost their jobs.

“The writers’ strike is no laughing matter for Jay Leno and David Letterman — especially when it comes to their wallets.
It is costing the late night talk show hosts a reported $100,000 a night.
Leno, 57, and Letterman, 60, have not received a paycheck from their networks — NBC and CBS, respectively — since the strike started November 5, New York Post quotes TV industry sources as saying.In the first nine days of the strike, they have each lost a total of more than $700,000, according to the Post. (They are not paid on the weekends.)
Leno, host of The Tonight Show, earns around $27 million a year, while Letterman, host of Late Show with David Letterman, rakes in a reported $31.5 million.
Letterman is continuing to pay his production staff, the Post reports, though it remains unclear how long that will continue. Meanwhile, NBC officials said they may layoff non-writing staffers by the end of the week.”
That’s real money right there….
