“The Jay Leno Show” will premiere on Monday, Sept. 14 with Jerry Seinfeld serving as Leno’s first primetime celebrity guest.
Seinfeld will join previous announced musical guests Jay Z, Kanye West and Rihanna on the opening week of Leno’s 10 p.m. comedy show.
The press release announcing the booking notes that Seinfeld is friends with Leno, but it adds that the comic has many many things to promote, including a pair of end-of-the-year concerts in Las Vegas, a multi-episode guest arc on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and the upcoming NBC series “The Marriage Ref.”
As you may have heard, “The Jay Leno Show” will be the first entertainment program to be stripped across primetime on broadcast network television. It will feature many of Jay Leno’s most beloved bits from late-night TV. And if you have to ask which features those are, you’re probably not the target demo for “The Jay Leno Show.”
