With less than two months to go before the launch of Jay Leno's new prime time show, NBC is ramping up the publicity push. Today, that means the debut of The Jay Leno Show's website, which offers a taste of the new program's flavor -- if something utterly bland can be said to have a flavor, that is.
Yes, the scheduling may be revolutionary, but the jokes are anything but. People in Hollywood like drugs? Oh Jay, you're too much. Apparently none of that $2 million-plus a week that NBC will supposedly be saving by doing away with 10 p.m. dramas is getting pumped back into writing.
