I've never been a big fan of Lay Leno. Not on the Tonight Show, not on the Jay Leno Show, not at all. I'm saying that so you can judge the comment I'm about to make because it may just reflect my own bias.
Anyway, the opening of both Leno's Tonight Show as well as his current show, where the first couple of rows of the audience sort of rush the stage and shake his hand, high-five him, etc... It just seems really fake to me. I know that it is fake in the sense that the powers that be tell them to do that. All TV is fake in that sense. This just feels fake though. Even more than just your usual TV fake.
Does that make any sense at all?
