Talk-show Tango Oct. 24-28: Barack Obama on Tonight Show with Jay Leno

In television on 10/22/2011 at 10:39 am

U.S. President Barack Obama will make his second appearance on Tuesday, Oct. 25 on The Tonight Show since becoming president. And why not? Obama is having a pretty impressive year. Too bad about the host. Sigh. A person as erudite and fast on his feet as Obama is really wasted on Jay Leno, who will pull out some embarrassing low humour to be sure. Ah well.
