A slimmed down, confident looking Jay Leno returned for his second stint as host of The Tonight Show Monday, and RadarOnline.com has you covered on his big comeback.
The show began with a Wizard of Oz-inspired dream sequence in which Leno said, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home,” setting up the scene for current pop culture icon Betty White to peer in and say, “Wow, NBC really did cut your budget — look at this ratty-assed barn.”
Leno held back on bashing NBC — for the most part — as he did joke that the network was going downhill quicker than one of his guests, Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn.
Leno has stacked his first week back with an impressive roster of guests, including Olympic gold medal snowboarder Shaun White and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin on Tuesday; Chelsea Handler, Avril Lavigne and the cast of Jersey Shore on Wednesday; and Matthew McConaughey slated for Thursday, among others.
The Tonight Show airs weeknights on NBC at 11:35/10:35c.
