Kanye West On Jay Leno Last Night

I really liked Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" and watched it regularly over the years, especially his opening monologues. So I was very interested in his new 10 PM show that debuted last night. I am disappointed to have to say that I thought most of it fell surprisingly flat. Notably, the sit down interview with Jerry Seinfeld (and Oprah Winfrey via satellite), felt like an extended wait for punch lines that never came.

But there was one great moment during this first episode. It came when Jay briefly talked Kanye West about his disruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV video music awards the other night. At one point, featured in the clip embedded below, Jay asks Kanye what his mother, whom Kanye had praised publicly for years and who died tragically in 2007, would have thought about his behavior that night.
