After much heavy promotion by NBC the new Jay Leno show has arrived, making its debut right now to TV audiences on the east coast.
So far at 37 minutes into it the Twitterverse isn’t being kind to Leno’s new gig, to put it mildly.
WHDH owner Ed Ansin caused a brouhaha in April 2009 when his station announced they won’t air the new Jay Leno show. At the time Ansin told the Boston Globe he thinks Leno won’t be effective in prime time. NBC threatened to strip WHDH of their affiliation if they proceeded to move Leno to 11pm. Ten days later NBC announced Leno will air on WHDH after all, leading some to speculate Ansin caved in to NBC or that NBC offered him some kind of deal in order to stave off all the negative publicity generated by the rebel NBC affiliate.
