Jay Leno Proclaims the ‘Extinction’ of NBC


NBC has had its fair share of problems in recent years with its ‘late night’ talk shows, especially with boisterous hosts and strong personalities. The debacle with Conan O’Brien only scratches the surface when discussing the issues that NBC has struggled with when referencing its late night talk shows, hosts, and mediocre ratings.

However, a Wednesday report in the New York Times confirmed that the network has promised Jimmy Fallon that he will succeed Jay Leno as the next host of the iconic late-night program. Needless to say, this has created quite the stir amongst Leno loyalists.

Though ViralRead has been told that Leno did not directly come out and address the Jimmy Fallon announcement in Wednesday’s taping, Leno did (once again) take a shot at NBC’s low ratings.

“According to several reports, scientists say they are getting closer and closer to being able to do Jurassic Park-style cloning of extinct species,” Leno joked with his audience. “Imagine that. Things that were once thought to be extinct could be brought back from the dead. So there’s hope for NBC. It could turn around.”

On Monday, he compared his NBC bosses to “snakes.” For starters, on Tuesday night’s show he took a rather large dig at the show’s ratings. Guests Wednesday included Vanessa Hudgens and Chris O’Dowd with musical guest Gary Clark Jr. I’m sure their agents are happy that their clients came out the other end unscathed.

    I'm convinced that Leno's biggest mistake was criticizing Obama. NBC, as well as the others, are run by rampant liberals.
