"Leno Has Lowest Rated Summer Ever"

Good news and bad news everybody.  Good news first – get my hopes up, Hollywood Reporter:

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” is pulling a smaller number in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic than when Conan O’Brien hosted the show last year.

In fact, this summer is the lowest-rated “Tonight” on record, though such feats have become increasingly common on broadcast across the board.

Oh, thank God.  America is finally coming to its senses.  I hate this asshat so much.  Hey have you heard about this?  Did you hear about this?  YOU’RE RUINING A PRECIOUS TELEVISION INSTITUTION AND GETTING WHAT YOU DESERVE YOU UNFUNNY, BACKSTABBING PISSPANTS.  HAHAHA.

Oh, wait.  I said there was bad news, too.  Well, after reading that Leno is having the worst summer in the history of “The Tonight Show,” the news would have to be pretty damn bad to bring me down.  You know, something crazy.  Like, despite these horrible ratings, he’s still beating Letterman or something. (*chuckles to self at the hilarity of the mere idea*)

Even with the reduced rating, Leno is back to beating his top rival, CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman,” by a healthy 22% in both metrics. (Ed. – total audience and 18-49 demo)

(*bangs head on wall for 45 minutes*)

Guh.  Look, I love America.  But this is the problem with democracy and a society based around freedom… even dipsh-ts get a say in things.   I’m not saying I’m fully advocating for a revolution where we install a single, tyrannical leader, but if this hypothetical tyrant was Team Coco, I’d at least go to one of his speeches.

Seriously, though.  This is depressing, and I need some cheering up.  Let’s see what I can do about that.
