Ad Nauseam: Jay Leno Plays Vehicular Manslaughter for Laughs

According to Movieline (via New York Mag), Jay Leno’s new prime time show, set to debut on NBC in September, hasn’t exactly been generating a lot of buzz. But since nothing says funny like a grisly hit-and-run, this promo, co-starring Fred Armisen of "Saturday Night Live," should turn things around.

Though I’m pretty sure Leno has never gotten as much as a chuckle from me, I understand where the humor is supposed to be here. Yet for some reason the laughter isn’t coming.

Somewhere, though, I imagine pedestrian-hater Robert Novak is yukking it up.
