Jay Leno will be coming back to television with a bang! He returns to late night next month with his brand new show called The Jay Leno Show, and things are falling into place!
Not only has Jay scored Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kanye West, but now Jerry Seinfeld is scheduled to be Jay Leno’s first in-studio guest!
And although Jay’s debut lineup of guests is as A-list as they come, he said last week at the NBC portion of the Television Critics Association panel that his new program won’t be based on guest interviews and musical performances.
Jay said his new show will feature a racing segment that will feature stars like Tom Cruise who have already shown interest. He said, “We’re going to do something called the Green Car Challenge. All celebrities talk about being green, but we want to see who’s green and fast and we’re working with a major manufacturer now.They’re building us some really, really high powered electric cars that are as fast as any race cars and we will take the celebrity, we will put them in the car and have them do a lap on the track and see who is the fastest.”
Jay’s new show premieres Monday September 14th on NBC.
