TV: The Jay Leno Show (NBC, M-F 10)

For weeks now, Jay Leno has been telling everyone who'd listen that The Jay Leno Show was not going to be a copy of The Tonight Show. Based on the first two nights, he's been lying his little brains out.

Opening monologue, cheesy banter with bandleader Kevin Eubanks unfunny comedy bits, softball interviews, more unfunny comedy bits, musical guests -- the only thing missing from The Tonight Show is the desk.

If you were a fan of Leno before, you'll certainly love this, since it's exactly the sort of innocuous bland pablum he's been dishing out for the last seventeen years. If you don't care for Leno, this isn't going to change your mind.
