LOS ANGELES - NBC executives are really starting to worry as the ratings for The Jay Leno Show continue to drop.
Last week TV Guideline Magazine critic Wallace Foofulecki noted that the Leno Show had been beaten by The Condiment Channel.
And now TV Guideline is reporting that on Monday, the Jay Leno Show finished last behind CBS, ABC, and a cable station rerun of the children's educational show, Going Pee Pee Time Is Anytime.
When Jay was told that his show got beat by a children's show about going potty, Mr. Pumpkin Head became enraged. He said that there was no way in the world that a show about little kids pissing could get more viewers than his amazingly amazing show.
Jay was shown the official figures and he took the paper and tore it into 32 pieces. He screamed out that people can make numbers say anything, especially untrue things which are nothing but lies disguised as the so-called truth.
He then ran to his studio office and locked the door. An NBC custodian stated that he could hear Jay crying and saying that he didn't care what America thought and that he was still very funny.
He pounded his desk with his fist and asked how in the world could a bunch of kids going wee-wee beat out his show, which has 17 semi-well paid, quasi-funny writers and the second best band on television.
A reliable source, who wishes to remain anonymous and is dating Sofie Cuddlewrap, who is the personal assistant to NBC Vice-President of Program Time Placing Burke F. Toppertip, stated that NBC will probably be replacing Jay Leno with Rev. Al Sharpton sometime in December.
But for the meantime so that The Jay Leno Show does not continue to place fourth in its time slop they will probably be moving it from it's 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central slot to 3 a.m. Eastern, 2 a.m. Central.
The NBC executives believe that in that time slot The Jay Leno Show should have no problem beating out ABC's reruns of The Flying Nun, CBS's reruns of WKRP In Cincinnati, and ESPN's baseball series, Extra Inning Regular Season Baseball Games of The 50's.
