My Opinion: Jay Leno Pushed Kevin Eubanks off ‘The Tonight Show’
Written by The Dishmaster, Posted in Uncategorized
Something’s fishy. If you watch Eubanks make his departure announcement below, you might notice what I notice. First, Leno says “this is something we talked about,” and not “this is something you came to me about.” Second, when Leno asks Eubanks why he’s leaving, he uncomfortably looks down at his desk and starts shuffling papers. Lastly, the hug between them at the end looks mighty fake. It’s possible that Eubanks abandoned Leno, which is what could be the source of the tension, but I’m guessing otherwise. I think Leno wanted to change course after all the late night insanity, and Eubanks was the easiest target.
