Jay Leno's monologue now on iTunes

jay lenoIf you can't stay up late enough to watch Leno (and you actually like him), iTunes is your new best friend. Starting today, NBC will offer clips from the previous night's episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. That means Jay's full monologue and comedy sketches (like JayWalking and Headlines) will be available for $1.99. You can also get a season pass-type-deal and get 20 of Leno's monologues a month for $9.99.

Danny Solis Did you ever live in Alamosa Co. with your Grandfather? I too think Leno is neat. Gets his foot in his mouth once in a while, only because the truth hurts, and everyone knows if you are going to tell the truth, you had better make people laugh.

A while back they used to play it on the radio the next morning. But hey Leno is a funny guy and you all should get over it.

Daily videos of people getting teeth extracted (and other less painful things than watching Leno) are also available at iTunes.

You can watch Japanese girls vomit on each other for free and it's hell of a lot more entertaining.

I'm just glad that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were available first. If Apple had released this crap before my heroes it would have broken my iHeart.

Someone might buy this, if iTunes ever creates a "discount bin" a la Wal-Mart.

Maybe NBC should have went with vending machines that sell Leno's monologue... on VHS tapes... in nursing homes...

Really though, even for Conan, $1.99 for the monologue? Really? Is it that hard to tell your VCR/DVR/PC to record NBC every night at that time?

I don't think Leno was a good choice, not because he isn't good or his show isn't - but Conan is the right demographic for the iTunes auidence, hence why you don't see MacGyver on there.

Leno doesn't get much praise on the Internet - but his demographic lies elsewhere.

Maybe its me, but i believe instead of Leno's monologues, they should have put Conan's up there. Conan is way funnier than Leno, plus Conan gets more buys on the iTunes music store. I mean, the Finland episode was on the top 100 for at least a month, I don't even think anybody has even bought a Leno video...

Or, for $49.99 you can get NONE of Leno's monologues per month...
