Probably sooner than you’d like. Cuz you’ll be sharing meals at OUR house– at a festive table, festooned with regret, and filled with your fellow NBC rejects! (You can hear all about our bitter tale of “no” here, in the pilot episode of our post-NBC web series talk show- “Bitter Party of Five.”)
Ya see… we GET you, Jay. We know how you feel. We know how you feel, too, Pope Benny. (Sure, sure, Benny…. we know you “resigned.” But then… so did Nixon.)
Come join us, you two. Come over to the dark side! Getting an ex-host of The Tonight Show or an ex-Pope as guests on our web series would be a HUGE feather in our cap. Sound crazy? Deluded? Sure.
“Ooh, I get bitter with a little help from my friends…”
I know there is great division in our land. A storm of partisanship where enemies wage war against each other based merely on a person’s taste in late night talk shows. My own fatherPete Birdsong, for example, is a P.C.-using, Republican-voting, Catholic model-railroader living way further inland than L.A., and he LOVES the Leno. Can’t get enough. And me? Well, let’s just say my Dad and I agree to NOT discuss politics or late night talk show hosts. But whether you’re in camp Letterman or Leno, PC or Mac, GOP or tree-hugging commie… everyone goes “ouch” when they’re no longer invited to the party. So, Jay? Benedict? Pull up a chair and let’s all feast on “Peacock under glass.” Served with bitter herbs.
P.S. Want to see a particular celebrity as a guest on Bitter Party of Five? Then tweet them and tell them so! (You can follow us on Twitter too, but we have no idea where we’re going. You should also go to our YouTube channel and SUBSCRIBE! And of course, like us on FaceBook.
Now go on…. Go on, get out of here! You have a lotta shit to do. Get a-tweetin’!
