Dueling 'Tonight' show hosts? Hmmm

(Courtesy: NBC)

It'll never happen, right?

Well, it did last night.  New Age Tonight show host Jimmy Fallon pretended to pull a hammy during the opening monologue, and dethroned (for no good reason, in my semi-humble opinion) host Jay Leno "tagged in" to continue his own "hammy" monologue as only Leno can do it.

How was it?  Leno was on fire.  Let's just say I haven't heard welcomed rapid-fire comic patter like this since Rodney Dangerfield died.

On politics: "If Democrat Bernie Sanders wins, he'll be the first socialist elected president since 2008."

On the economy:  "The economy is so bad that parents in Beverly Hills are being forced to raise their own children."

Aw Jay, I missed you, man.  Now if Stephen Colbert could just fake, I don't know, a self-induced coma or something, maybe we could get David Letterman back for a couple of weeks.
