I'm sure by now you've heard that NBC has announced that Jerry Seinfeld will be the first guest on The Jay Leno Show. Personally I think the show's a horrible idea and I think the news that ABC and CBS will not allow their talent to appear on the show is not only more new worthy, but that it puts a big damper on the show. I would rather watch scripted Television than another variety show/talk show/whatever this is going to be show. But I thought I'd post the press release.
So what are your thoughts on the new show? And would you rather watch a good scripted show or this?
