The Jay Leno Show is not so funny

Switching channels between shows, while working on a Website, I happened to surf through The Jay Leno Show. I am not sure what I expected, since I quit watching the Tonight Show long time ago. I thought that maybe freed from the TS format, he may bring something fresh to television, or, God forbid, even something insightful. It just shows you how delusional I can be sometimes. The stand-up "comedian" Tom Somebody-Or-Other (I instantly blocked his name) was trying to be funny with verbal jabs about his friend who wanted a Pit Bull for a family pet. He thought it was funny to say that his friend is an idiot because the Pit Bull is going to eat his children and, then, compared having a Pit Bull as a pet to having a python snake, since, according to him, all they both want is kill you.

Nice public service, Mr. Leno. Also, thanks, Mr. Leno, your "guest" just made my choice to NOT ever watch your show a cinch.

It's one thing to appear to be a moron. It's a totally different deal to open your mouth and prove it.

If anybody has ever found a more gratifying family pet than an American Pit Bull Terrier I am yet to hear about it.

"I think Pit Bulls get a bad rap.
They are affectionate, smart, loyal, keep you safe.
Treat them right. Don't lie to them

thank you for saying so eloquently what i felt last night. my anger towards the idiot's comments prompted me to write this to the jay leno show, "i had really been enjoying the new show- until just now. the "comedian" jay had on tonight made blatantly erroneous comments about pit bulls. jokes based on ignorance and discrimination are not funny. i am disappointed that jay would have such an ignoramus on his show." i hope lots of other people wrote in as well. i speak up every chance i get because the pit bull mix i recently rescued, stevie, cannot. when did it become ok to publicly hate on the most sweet, gentle, kind, and loyal breed? stevie has opened my eyes to all of the animosity that is unfairly unleashed on pit bulls. i will continue to use my voice to extol the many virtues of pit bulls everywhere. hopefully together, all of us who love pit bulls can drown out the negativity of losers like the leno joker.
