For weeks after Jay Leno slipped the late night scene for an earlier time slot, I mourned. I tried watching ABC’s ‘Nightline’—found it dull as an old sock.
David Letterman isn’t funny anymore now that President George W. Bush is no longer in office. His Sarah Palin jokes lack their former verve. Maybe he could write a few adultery jokes and try those on for size since he’s got so much experience. Young woman/old man and all that.
Leno’s replacement on NBC comes up short even though he’s tall; Conan O’Brien is just trying too hard, I think.
Then I discovered George Lopez’s ‘Lopez Tonight’ on TBS. The evening I found it, one of my favorite stars Sandra Bullock guested, and from that moment, I tuned in despite the fact the host and guest were cracking jokes about Bullock becoming ‘more Latina.’
But Lopez’s show has a feature that no one’s really talked about and it defies political correctness. As a matter of fact it is completely politically incorrect and I hope he will continue in this vein and apply some of that famously correct diversity to future segments.
The feature: ‘Creepy Little White Girl.’
