VIDEO: Paul Reiser Discusses His Canceled NBC Sitcom with Jay Leno
So, this is awkward. Paul Reiser already was scheduled to promote The Paul Reiser Show on Monday's Tonight Show with Jay Leno when he got word last week that his show was being pulled after two episodes. He showed up to chat with Jay anyway, commenting on the uncomfortable situation ("I said, 'Well, that's weird. What do you think, Jay? Should I come on and just say hi?'") and throwing barbs at NBC ("When you are the last-place network, you don't want to jeopardize that. You found your niche, stay there.").
To make this video more fun, turn it into a test: Try sitting through Paul Reiser telling Christina Aguilera that all of NBC's promo money went to her show The Voice, and not his, without squirming.
