Jay Leno Plays Safe

December 16, 2008

Howard started off the show mocking Jay Leno, who recently said in an interview that he thought Howard was no longer relevant. Howard laughed that he was surprised to hear Jay accuse him of being irrelevant when he continues to “borrow” the show’s material. Robin referenced the time Jay asked Hugh Grant about patronizing a prostitute as the one time Jay had ever pushed the envelope on his own, but Howard dismissed the incident, as Jay’s move was more safe than edgy.
