I caught it and enjoyed it. You have to take it for what it was. It was a party to celebrate the 10th aniversiry. It was funny and provided some good backgroung on the show. Don't think Good Eats think Jay Leno. I got a chance to talk to AB about it on Thursday at his book signing in Chicago. Apparently it was very hard to do, and they had to do it twice in order to sell enough seats to pay for it and they still lost a boat load of money on it.

Watched it last night via the magic of Tivo. I enjoyed it for what it was. But then I'm a bit mental.

My kids laughed.

That house was HUGE! They did it twice!? To a packed house?!
Just to pay for it? IT didn't seem like it would be that much. The production value was about $76.50. ;-)

Ah well, it's still one of the best shows out there.

I dunno - at least Leno isn't scripted word for word. The anniversary show felt totally unnatural.

I hate bashing anything that AB is involved in, but this just didnt do it for me. But it was still a big moment, and they still deserve credit for 10 years of great tv.

I don't know to me it seemed very much in line with his personality. If I were to script a show for him, that is exactly what I would put in the script. Hi is a bit nutty.
