Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
-- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
I luv'ed staying up and watching the Johnny Carson with my mom, mainly because it was us girls bonding. I remember watching Joan Rivers as co host before the one too many facelifts and when Rosanne Barr first came on as a guest comic.
"When life gives you lemons, squirt lemon juice in your enemy's eyes."
Very touching close of the Tonight Show. As soon as Jay's chin started to quiver, my tears started.
That is how one should leave a TV show, when you are on top and not wait until the audience can no longer stand you. Hear that, Barbara Walters?
It's so sad that I will no longer be watching the Tonight Show after 25+ years. I wish Jay nothing but the best and thanks for the many laughs for the past 22 years.
Good night, dear friend.
Sheldon Cooper: Woman, you're playing with forces beyond your ken
Penny: Yeah, well your Ken can kiss my Barbie.
I thought the Leno send off was great. Great lineup too. I'm just not sure why they had to taint it with Kim K.
Leno's send off was very well done. I also liked that he tied in Johnny Carson's sign off, because I think his final show will always go down as one of the very best. I also LOVED the way that Jimmy Fallon handled his final Late Night show. His walk off to the new studio was a perfect mix of recognizing the end of something, but looking forward to what was to come. I'm glad he treated it as an end of Late Night, and not just a continuation from one show to the other.
I read that Bethenny was cancelled today.
I saw that too. I'm not a big fan of her show, and will not miss it. HOwever, I have to admit I was very sad to see it had been cancelled, only because Omarosa predicted it wouldn't last past a year, and I SO wanted Omarosa to be proven wrong about ANYTHING!
