Jay Leno Says Goodbye

Last night Jay Leno bid The Tonight Show farewell. Again. Here’s what he had to say.

I remember if I was good and ate all my meat and drank my milk at supper in the summer and on Friday nights I could stay up and watch “Carson”. Then Johnny retired and this new guy came along. Jay Leno. He had weird hair, but I thought he was funny, so I kept watching. Now, after 22 years of laughs, Jay said so long.

At the end of the show, through tears and a quivering voice, Jay thanked his audience calling us “incredibly loyal” and said “We wouldn’t be on the air without you people.” He added that hosting The Tonight Show has been “The greatest 22 years of my life.” Jay called himself “The luckiest guy in the world” saying he has gotten to meet presidents, astronauts, movie stars” and saying “it has just been incredible.” He also boasted about the talents of his producers, writers, sound guys and lighting people.

He’s a class act and is going out on top. I think the show is in good hands with Jimmy Fallon. The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon begins February 24.

Watch his tearful goodbye here.
