TV Junkie: Kanye Helps Leno; 'Vampire' (Alleged) Boobies

Jay Leno's first show brought in 50% more viewers than his last "Tonight Show". Jerry Seinfeld was a huge draw but the scene-stealer (again!) was Kanye West who submitted himself to a grilling from Leno. West had long-been scheduled to appear on the show, how fortuitous that he made a spectacle of himself at the VMAs last night. Did you see "The Jay Leno Show"? What'd you think? Time magazine columnist, James Poniewozik, twittered that it was the "Ten-ight Show" in reference to the virtual duplication and we're more than inclined to agree with him.
Speaking of the VMAs, did you see our video from the MTV VMAs? Please check it out to see us chat with Sean Paul, Buzz Aldrin, Melody Thornton, etc.
Last Friday we talked about the teenagification of the vampire genre and whaddaya know, The CW's "Vampire Diaries" opened to record viewership. Despite the success, four of the series' actresses and a CW cameraman were cited after allegedly flashing drivers on a major freeway in Atlanta. Kayla Ewell, who plays Vicki, said that the incident has been blown out of proportion, and that, "In all honesty, the size of my breasts aren’t necessarily something people would be interested in." Publicity stunt or is it just the joy of being 27(?!) and under?
