Jay stuck to the same formula that kept him No. 1 for most of his 17 years as host and let loose with one-liners about the celebutards who’ve been a part of his opening monologues. He also poked fun at his next gig: “I’m going to be going to a secluded spot where no one can find me — NBC prime time,” Leno told the audience, according to news reports. “It’s a gamble. I’m betting NBC will still be around in three months, but that’s not a given.” I still say he should have gone to ABC at 11:30 PM. If his 10PM show on NBC doesn’t work, he’ll be damaged goods.
