Pat Gray: Leno rips NBC




Jay Leno Rips NBC in Monologue

PAT: Jay Leno is so angry about what's going on at NBC, did you see his monologue last night? Here's just a little piece of it.

CALLER: Happy birthday to Katie Couric. It's Katie Couric's birthday. She left NBC for another network. I've got to give her a call, see how that's working out. As you may have heard, there's a rumor floating around we were cancelled. I heard it coming in this morning on the radio.

VOICE: I heard it, too.

LENO: So far nobody said anything to me. But you know, if we did get cancelled, give us time to maybe do some traveling.

VOICE: That would be wonderful.

LENO: In fact, I understand Fox is beautiful this time of year, beautiful this time of year. (Applause). I don't think, I don't think there's any truth to the rumor. See, it's always been my experience NBC only cancels you when you are in first place. So we're fine. (Laughter). We're actually okay. The justice department announced they will conduct an antitrust review of Comcast's proposal deal, you know, the merge with NBC. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Antitrust review, which is the relationship I have with NBC, antitrust. (Laughter). There's an antitrust, yeah, yeah, yeah.

PAT: I mean, that's an angry rant. You see how angry, NBC? Do you see it? Do you see? I mean, to air that kind of dirty laundry during the show on NBC, something's going radically wrong there. But the debacle at NBC is one of the worst in TV history. At the height of Jay Leno's popularity five years ago, he was number one. And he had been for, what, ten years? They announce he will be replaced with the weird, goofy, bizarre Conan O'Brien. Then to keep Leno once that replacement finally happens and he's still number one, they inexplicably give Leno a prime time talk show every night five nights a week. Everybody knew, you don't have to be in television to know that can't work. That's not going to work! Nobody wants to watch a talk show at 10:00 Eastern, 9:00 in the rest of the country, in prime time. You just, I mean, after the news and there's nothing else on, that's when you want a talk show. Winding down for the day, going to sleep at night. And then O'Brien has been abysmal, he's lost, I don't know, three million viewers or whatever. David Letterman who's been in third place for ten years is now beating Conan O'Brien by two million viewers a night. So now in an effort to fix this debacle, what's being discussed is that they will have Leno come in from 11:35 to 12:05 and he will do the monologue, maybe have a guest and then, and then Conan will do the Tonight Show, it will be a Jay Leno Show leading up to 12:05, that way apparently there's some kind of penalty NBC has to pay, I guess, to Conan O'Brien if they take him off any sooner than they already agreed to. At this point you just cut your losses. You just say, we really screwed up badly; Conan, bye bye, go do whatever you want. He's proven he can't win at that time of night. Let some other network take him, pay the penalty, gave him his money, move on, put Leno back on the Tonight Show, make everybody happy. But, you know, people don't like to admit their mistakes and I'm sure Zucker or whoever's responsibility at NBC won't take responsibility for that debacle, either, any more than Barack Obama has taken actual real responsibility for the problems of the country.

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) recently sent a fiery letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding she stop obstructing GOP efforts to investigate security measures taken before and on January 6, 2021.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Rep. Davis said the Capitol Police should release all communications concerning security from that day, but the police chief can’t do so without an "okay" from the House sergeant at arms — a Pelosi appointee. Americans deserve to know why the Capitol’s security posture was so bad that day, so we can be sure it won’t happen again, but unfortunately, Rep. Davis told Glenn, that may not occur until Republicans take the House majority back.

"Republicans condemn the violence that took place a year ago. That was unanimous," Davis said. "But here we are today still left wondering, what did the sergeant at arms of the House — the lead law enforcement official appointed directly by the speaker — what did he do in preparation leading up to January 6? There's been conflicting testimony, and all I've ever asked for, as the lead Republican on the respective oversight committee, is just to get the communications. We want to know what preparations were made, and the only person standing in the way of us getting the communications from her own appointee, who controls the House security operations, is Speaker Pelosi," he added.

"Unfortunately, the House is a very majority-driven institution. And remember, the Capitol Police chief cannot make a single security decision without going to Speaker Pelosi's appointed sergeant at arms. That's her own political appointee," Davis continued. "So, you know when I'm going to get this information? It's when I'm the chairman of the House Administration Committee when Republicans take over Congress in November of 2022."
