The dust has been settling (as have the ratings) for NBCs 5-nights-a-week experiment in savings money show, JAY LENO. It appears that, with curious viewers no longer surprised, the remains of the people watching are those that are comfortable with Jay's TONIGHT SHOW-like format. I am of the latter! I think its great that the 11 pm hour now has a comedy alternative! And its great to have only one guest to (sometimes) fast forward through. I am optimistic that ratings won't plummet TOO much more, and that the overall experience will have been a positive one for NBC. Because, I for one, am being entertained!
