How Was Jay Leno's First Episode Back At 'The Tonight Show?'

Tonight ShowIt's like he never left, isn't it?

Jay Leno returned to 'The Tonight Show' last night, and he pretty much settled back into the groove right away. Of course, there really wasn't much groove to "settle back into" since the 10PM 'Jay Leno Show' was 'Tonight 2.0,' a carbon copy of the 11:35 show with just a time change (oh, and no desk).

He still did his long monologue, he still bantered with Kevin, he still interviewed guests. It's not like he was going to drastically change anything. Jay was Jay and he did was he always does.

What didn't he do? Well, he didn't acknowledge Conan O'Brien at all. I guess that's no surprise since he didn't acknowledge Johnny Carson on his first show back in 1992. But you would think that he would have said something about Conan since it was the major TV story for the past few months, but he didn't. As the opening 'Wizard of Oz' takeoff showed, they really do want to make believe all of this was a dream. Good to see Betty White make a cameo though.

So let's get to the nitty gritty:

Lindsey_Vonn_cropped_head Was that a real moment between Bob Costas and Lindsey Vonn during the NBC coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics on Saturday night ... or just a typical cross promotion for the Peacock network? You be the judge.

The gold medal winning American downhill ski champion, one of the darlings of the Vancouver games, appeared with Costas. At the end of the interview, Bob reminded Lindsey that she's the biggest 'Law & Order' fan in the world. Lindsey didn't deny it. She said it was true and the video they showed of her visiting the set and gushing about the show looked very sincere.

Stephen Colbert to Lindsey Vonn: 'How Do You Tell If a Ski is a Boy?' (VIDEO)

The Colbert Report, Lindsey VonnStephen Colbert in a macrame bikini? That's an image that's going to take a while to wipe from our hard drive. We're really hoping gold medalist Lindsey Vonn doesn't put in a good word for him with Sports Illustrated, as he suggested on 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM).

On the other hand, Colbert does have a point about the difference in men's and women's skis. "How can you tell the gender of a ski? Do you look under the binding? And if the ski is a boy, wouldn't that drag down the mountain a little bit?"

Well, you know, it all depends on how big the ski is.

The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lindsey Vonn, 2010 OlympicsGold medal winners Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn appeared on 'Oprah Winfrey' (weekdays, syndicated) to talk about their victories at the 'XXI Winter Olympics.' Both brought home gold medals for the U.S., and each went through their own journeys to achieve it.

White had the gold locked up even without his signature move, but decided to go for it anyway, even though he'd suffered an injury with it previously. "In my mind, it wasn't really an option ... I don't quit too easily."

For Vonn, the reality is still sinking in. "I can't believe I have a gold medal. It's just surreal to me ... everything that I've worked for my whole life is finally coming true. I've dreamed about that moment since I was a little girl."
