Jay and Dave on BP's New CEO

Jul 29, 2010
Jay Leno: "President Obama's new message to the American people is 'things could be a lot worse.' We've gone from 'change you can believe in' to 'things could be a lot worse.' The sequel is never as good as the original."

Late-Night Comics on Financial Reform and More

Jul 23, 2010

Jay and Dave on the iPhone, Toyotas and More

Jul 22, 2010
Jay Leno: "According to a study by the Brookings institution, Washington, D.C., has the highest concentration of smart people in the United States.

Jul 19, 2010

Jay Leno: "We have some wonderful news. BP announced it successfully capped the oil leak. The oil leak has stopped. I am so glad they were able to nip this thing in the bud."

Jay Leno: "Before they capped it, BP had to test the integrity of the well, which I believe is the first time 'BP' and 'integrity' have ever been used in the same sentence."

Jimmy Fallon: "BP says it finally stopped the oil from leaking. And if we've learned anything in the last three months, it's that whatever BP says, BP says."

Jay Leno: "The White House announced today that the stimulus package saved 3 million jobs. But they said there's still more jobs that need to be saved President Obama's, Joe Biden's, Harry Reid's, Nancy Pelosi's…"

Jul 02, 2010
