Jay Leno Plays Vehicular Manslaughter for Laughs

8:01 AM PDT on August 21, 2009

According to Movieline (via New York Mag),
Jay Leno's new prime time show, set to debut on NBC in September,
hasn't exactly been generating a lot of buzz. But since nothing says
funny like a grisly hit-and-run, this promo, co-starring Fred Armisen
of "Saturday Night Live," should turn things around.

I'm pretty sure Leno has never gotten as much as a chuckle from me, I
understand where the humor is supposed to be here. Yet for some reason the laughter isn't coming.

Somewhere, though, I imagine pedestrian-hater Robert Novak is yukking it up.
