    I assume when Jay leaves, Jimmy will bring his own guys in to write. What happens to John?

    JOhn is still at the Tonight Show? I thought they canned him when they brought Jay back after the Conan disaster.

    I don't believe for one second Jay is going anywhere, he'll end up on some network. I was thinking Fox, but now that Arsenio is coming back, who knows. Whether he takes John with him again is anyone's guess, though.

    I'm not defending John or that movie (which I've never seen), but most of those reviews were written by Stern sycophants, to be fair to John. I just read one that called him a traitor for leaving THSS show and riding Stern's coat tails, and made no mention of the movie at all. It still averages 3/5 with all the one stars, which is only one star below Private Parts. :dontknow:

    You mean people actually write reviews on Amazon for books and movies they have never seen in order to be douchebags? You have to be kidding me

    Any movie with Jeffrey Ross as a lead, not good.

    Excerpt from the first review- very well written:

    The pain starts with opening titles no more impressive than the introduction to grandma's vacation video and extends to: Thomas calling his genitalia a "vagining rod," an unintentionally hilarious sequence where Thomas defends the local stutterer from bullies, an embarrassing cameo from Mark Cuban, the use of what looks like "Tonight Show" offices to sub for apartment and hotel hallways, and an extended straining-on-toilet diarrhea gag that accurately sums up both John Melendez's talents and the film's vast ambitions.

    In fact, "Many" is packed with unimaginative, juvenile humor. "Many" is pointlessly crude; Melendez has no actual perceivable wit, so he uses fecal jokes and sexual come-ons to cover the script's dead spots. It's a curious choice because the screenplay eventually attempts to provoke sympathy, leaving the weird vulgarity up there with other unexplained touches like: the brief use of animation to embellish Thomas's fantasy world, why Melendez thought anyone would want to watch a film where he's cast as an object of sexual desire, and why his character wears a strange, unexplained frizzy wig.

    Unless Jay decides to continue working and brings John along, he is pretty much screwed.

    John's talent was ballbusting guerilla interviews, stirring up shit, and throwing collegues under the bus, which was a huge asset to 90s era Stern. I liked him on the show but John always struck me as an underhanded schemer who had a talent for coming up with ways to make money and get ahead in show business (ie his comedy tour in which Artie, Dipaolo, Levy did all the work and John collected a huge amout of the profits).

    Nevertheless John leaving for the tonight show was the right move. He's been making a "tonight show" salary for about a decade now which is far more than what he would have been paid at the Stern show. That and the fact that he wouldn't fit in the show nowadays. There is no more shit stirring with the main talent and the extent of interviews involve wolfie going to comi-con

    Arsenio's new show is being distrubuted for syndication. I think Fox is the best place for him to go. I still can't believe that Comedy Central pays Jon Stewart $25-$30 million a year!!

    I know, I'm with you. I remember listening to that show when Gary Garver called in for the last time, and he just didn't seem to understand why Howard didn't want him associated with THSS anymore (when really it was because Howard wanted Hollywood acceptance and Garver was fucking that up for him with his Stuttering John-esque interviews). I really felt bad for the guy, I just hope he realized what was going on after that.
