Leno (Finally) Says Goodbye to “Late Night”

It’s a big boo-hoo and buh-bye to Jay Leno as he takes his final bow as host of “The Tonight Show” or “The Late Show That Would Not Die!” Gaaaaahhhh. His guests on tonight’s show include legendary comic actor Billy Crystal—who was his first guest when he took over for Johnny Carson in 1992—and country music star Garth Brooks.

Film Review

The Last Station

Period biopic mixes the lusty with the literary

Late in life (in his 70s), widely famed Russian novelist Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy (known to his friends as “Leo Baby”) turned his attentions away from fiction and dabbled in the creation of a number of utopian communes. These live/work communes were based on Tolstoy’s own particular philosophy—one that espoused nonviolence, the abolition of private property, a strict vegetarian diet and an adherence to the principals of celibacy. (Yeah, sorry, Leo Baby, but you lost me on that last one.) Though the Tolstoyan Movement didn’t last very long, it allegedly influenced the thinking of such latter spiritual leaders as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Late night edition

In last week’s column, I casually mentioned that “The Jay Leno Show” would kill network television. Fortunately, NBC plunged a stake into its heart before it could do any more damage. Now what? Will the post-prime-time airwaves become a desolate hellscape in which men battle one another in a winner-take-all competition for pop cultural supremacy? Likelihood: probable.
