Glozell is about to Ginger Snap!

I don't get the Tonight Show writers...They are always by themselves. It seems like they would take advantage of all of the creative minds and ideas of the writers just walking around striking everyday. The writers should also go to the comedy clubs every week.. on different Comic nights...Black night, White night , Collage night, Spanish, Middle Eastern... Always know what is fresh and what people think is funny. The writers are mostly the same gender, race ...etc. if you don't want to hire a different spice...at least go look at it. Jay has a built in audience that watch the show because they use to watch the Tonight Show with their parents and grandparents. But now they have had a chance to see other shows. When the Tonight Show comes back...not all of the viewers will follow.

You have to have some new stuff. Try anything! Do the show backwards..band...interview...monologe. Even if it's stinks people/media will talk about it and tune in to see what else is going on.

Kevin Eubanks can start the monologue and Jay sit in Kevin's seat and laugh and interrupt Kevin...people will tune in.

The Tonight Show loves old people. ..add a twist. don't just have Betty White...use all of the remaining Golden Girls...
Marjorie Johnson(Cookie Lady) have the audience look under there chair and find...ONE COOKIE! and tell the audience to go wild like they were on Oprah or something. Impress Ed Asner...have Ed try to figure out who is the real Snoop Dogg... or guess which is an ipod...will the real(whatever) please stand up. Something along those lines so you incorporate the very very old with something new. Anything...when this strike is over people are going to look at the Tonight Show and think...are they still in reruns. We have seen the same bits...you have to change/add something.

In 2009 when/if Jay leaves...it will be a good thing. Jay will go to another network...and hopefully not take some of the same OLD writers with the same OLD ideas... What are you going to do Jay"Let's scare Betty White on ABC? In that case Jay, you should just start your own network. The AARP Show with Jay Leno...in conjunction with TV Land...sponsored by Prune Juice and Depends.
------------------

Tonight Show Producers... while this strike thing is going on...Do you have Bloopers you can show? Anything you edited out 15 years ago that was controversial then but not now...you tell why it was edited out and why...

Do you have clips of auditions?: Kevin Eubanks, John Melendez, Ross the Intern?
Clips when Jay's parents were on the show...

How the Tonight Show comes together"Secrets of the Tonight Show"...how you book guest...what time Jay arrives...what is planed ahead of time...

What really happened? Once the pages told me I was going to enjoy the Buffalo on the animal segment but I didn't see them...what happened? Tell about the monkey that got loose in the studio and didn't get caught until after a few days...do you have footage?

What happens when a guest doesn't show up...or is late?

Fight fire with fire! Fight David with David...Do you have the Tonight Show tapes when David Letterman guest hosted the show.( I don't know if he ever did)

People would love to feel like they are in the know...then when the show starts up again people will feel closer to the show...not just Jay. The things you didn't want to show before...look it over it might not be so bad and show it now.

During this time think about cleaning house...stagnate= death. If people are not coming up with some new stuff let them keep marching in circles.

If the head ain't right...

GLOZELL"S GHETTO GRIPE!
Why are the Strikers picketing against Carson Daly?...If there is anyone to prove you need writers...it's him. The writing is fine..he is stiff and uninteresting...but cute. So if Carson Daly wants to do his show with out writers...let him...

--------------- Well I guess I will go to the strike...I don't want to go today... I really don't...So it will be late if I post again today. Thanks!
---------------------

I went to strike
Joe= = How are you today GloZell?
GloZell == Just fine..(Dr. Jekyll or is it Mr. Hyde today?)

( okay maybe I'm still a little salty about yesterday but I will get over it Joe was nice)

A few people came up to me and said me getting in trouble was funny. Funny? I didn't sleep last night. No one knows what the big deal was...I still don't.(whatever)

Maurice stopped by. His check isn't enough from the restaurant he works at.(Taco Bell)( This is a bad picture of us) Some strikers think that the writers should take whatever deal that is on the table. Some don't understand this strike and if a great deal doesn't come out of this...no trust in the WGA and the President of WAG has to go.

Film makers that I have met say that this strike doesn't affect them. Writers should get a big cut up front and not worry about residuals.

Ian Edwards and I go way back. We were both performing at the Comedy Union and The Comedy Store on Sunset...he performs every week still. What I do know is that Jay is a person that has to work. This strike must be driving him nuts...I think he has some form of A.D.D. Jay has probably knitted twelve car covers by now.Over all most people think this strike will be over by January if not...Jay will probably go back to work...strike or no strike.

Jay cares about his writers...but he cares about his staff also...right?

Some people had Anti-Carson Daly Signs. (Funny) This Jeff Zuker(Jay-Z) guy must be big. One of the strikers said that if Jeff sells NBC to Sony they do not have to honor the 40 Million Dollar contract with Conan then they can keep Jay. ( I don't care what they do...bah humbug!) John Stewart is a better fit for the host of the Tonight Show than Conan. (I'm just saying)

Today was International Rally Day. Writers all across the world are supporting the strike. Good turn out. After the rally hear come Maurice...Maurice thought he looked good behind the podium. Marice is also...a...Model Promoter...(okay) Service Employees International Union support the WGA Strike. They drove by in big trucks playing music. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GLOZELL'S GHETTO COINCIDENCE!

Oprah has Stedman Graham...who is a tall light skin brother...
Star Jones Reynolds husband is a tall light skin brother...

Terry McMillan...was married to a tall light skin brother...-Hmmm the woman are all shorter strong educated dark skin sisters...I wonder what else the brothers have in common...Oh... they all have mustaches...maybe they should change to beards?

As an editor I can tell you that it would take some time (like 2 to 3 weeks) to edit together a "best of" or "bloopers" show - but it is a GREAT idea and they should have started on it the first day of the strike! Doing the show backwards is also a great idea!!! It sure would get people talking. They can do a "backwards week", I think it could be really funny!


Cookies under the audience chairs??? Also brilliant! Where do you come up with this stuff GloZell?!!

They did a prime time special on Johnny Carson - I'd love to see that again. I did always love when Jay would talk about his mom...was she ever on the show? He hardly talks about her anymore...

GloZell said...

Fightn' mad Mary,
It means a lot that you like my ideas because you are in the biz and I am not. So I wasn't sure what is doable or not.

That's what I don't get. The producers had to have known that the strike was coming and all they had was reruns...

I heard about the possabilty of a strike weeks before it happened.

I think his parents or at least his mom was on the show once...His parents have both passed away...

I think people would just love to know everything about Jay and the Tonight Show in a cool funny way.

Not all of my ideals are good but if you have 15 people a bit of a bad idea can form something else...right.

I have to say...I am not impressed with these people as much anymore...

All of the late night have the same fomula...monologe...interview...band...it dosn't have to be the same all of the time. Just a little change...people will oooh and ahhh.

Thanks Fightin'mad Mary...

let me know if you have any ideas for where I should turn my focus on...I am building a bridge and getting over the Tonight Show with Jay Leno...

Your ideas are great. I especially like changing up the format, and using the strike to be more creative.

'Cause these reruns from the 1990s SUCK! I don't even watch the monologues because who wants to hear about Bill Clinton and Monica? Or Anita Hill? lol TOO OLD!

I guess they are trying to be creative in showing the first appearances of Julia, Tom Hanks and the likes, but WHO CARES? Not entertaining.

And boy was it bad last night. The Tonight Show has DEFINITELY impoved. It was actually painful to watch Jay during the rerun last night....not funny and awkward. And Kevin had hair and wore suits! LOL You did get to see more of the band before though. I liked that.

I like your ideas of mixing the old with the new. In general, they need someone like you to help come up with fresh jokes and ideas!!

I remember watching one show where Jay teared up talking about his dad. It's those types of moments I'd like to see more of.

Keep your head up! Don't get discouraged, lady!

GloZell said...

Melinda,
You are the best...I think... to myself...now I don't want these people to think that I'm trying to take over or something...maybe they thought of these ideas and know they can't work or something...I just can't believe that a team of 15 writers...plus whoever is on the creative team... can't come up with a new idea IN 15 YEARS! What do they get paid to do?

I think Jay must be way too nice and just let people ride because they are so and so's kid or I knew this person for so long and they have a house and kids or something...so if you don't want to fire people...just add more...or get a group of diverse people and throw ideas around...if I only watched BET I would only know BET...(I don't watch BET it was just an example)

Most of the writers of the Tonight Show don't even watch the Show! That should be manditory!...if you don't want to watch the show...You need to go!

A writer from the Tonight Show told me that...What? So you just scrible some joke on paper..turn it in and go home?...

I can't believe that...I wouldn't want that person working for me... How can you improve?

I wanted to know these writers and see how everything is done...I am not impressed anymore.

I was wondering how long you were going to watch the reruns...you are better that I...

Kevin with hair...that's good! The band is great but everyone from Jay on Down has gotten lazy...the band plays the same songs...I bet there is only five or less writers that are good...

The security...Police...I want to meet this Jeff Zuker Guy...

He must be in New York...He has to be way to busy to just show up to the show... I see so many little things that could help.

When you walk into the lobby...have pictures of the guest on the wall...or all of the old host...candid shots so people can say...Hey remeber that show...

I hope the new place has EXIT doors on the second floor. If a fire or a crazy person did something at the Tonight Show...Oh well...no exits upstairs...do they not know what day and time it is...

I don't get it...Jay holding on to people...fighting for people... not going to work for the writers

and these writers can't get you to the point that NBC wants to keep you because you don't capture the younger audience...He could but...he dosn't have help...

Jay helps everyone!...and he still can't keep his job...a shame... what is the point Jay...

The only gift that Jay can use is new ideas...that's the only thing his millions can't buy...child I can go on and on.

Just makes me mad...Jay should just go back to work...his writers have been on strike for years...

Shoot I've been givin ideas for free...take them...and they can't say hi?...I got to get up and get a ticket...I have done my time...I have earned something?...

Okay I am sure you stopped reading seven paragraphs ago..

GloZell said...

And another thing Melinda...
Melinda are you there...Ha ha

If the writers would watch the show...they would see how to improve the show...they don't watch because they are board...I see three writers mostly Beth...Kevin and this one writers with a long beard and they stay until after the monologue...but the rest...I was shocked to find out there were so many writers...

A writer from the Tonight Show told me that they haven't seen the Tonight Show in YEARS! And Jay just paying them...

Even with a dog you can't just give it food and water...you have to love it and play be around it or it will die or just be depressed...And that is just what has happened...no love...no new audience...no Jay after 2009AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Okay...I think I'm done now... ... yep, I'm done. WAKE UP!

Thanks Melinda

Wow, I didn't know a lot of the writers didn't watch the show. That's a trip!! I think they are all on cruise-control, just riding things out. How would you know how well the joke played on air without watching the show?

I do not get it, though. Jay may not have the youngest audience, but he DOES have the highest ratings!!

Conan won't get the big ratings across the board, I know that much. And one reason the younger folks like Conan is because of his less than mainstream musical guests (plus he's on later and can get raunchier). But Jay's show wants bigger names it seems.

There are ways to grab a younger audience with Jay, but I think they just want him OUT for some reason. Maybe they'd have to pay Conan less?

A few fresh ideas and segment changes could change things up for the better. And no, a NEW DESK isn't gonna cut it!! LOL!!
