Deadline provided an update on the upcoming "You Bet Your Life." The major news, if you can call it major --- Leno's former "Tonight Show" bandleader, Kevin Eubanks, will serve as the George Fennaman to Leno's Groucho.

Can't wait for Kevin to play a guitar riff every time Jay says a punch line.

...or the forced Yuk Yuks after every Leno quip.

Looks like our local Fox Affiliate (KFQX) will be airing Jay Leno's YBYL.  They are airing a contestant search commercial (which also mentions they will pay your travel if selected).

The show info and audition page is found at:

Man, the website really makes it look like the game will be buried under exactly the kind of comedy bits he was doing on the Tonight show for all those years.  I mean, I know the game was always secondary to the laughs, but this looks like it will be a much different program than any of the earlier versions.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

  WSTR in Cincinnati will air Leno YBYL in the fall. I think I will pass.
 
   Are there any other stations announcing (other then KFQX) they're carrying it?

In NYC, FOX station WYNY (Ch. 5) has started airing promos for this. Maybe they will pair it up with 25WOL. I'm willing to give Jay a chance. Maybe he'll surprise me - in a good way.

Underrated comment.

I liked Jay Leno on The Tonight Show i do miss watching him on tv. He might do good on this i would rather see him have another talk show with his segments.

Not a station list, but it's cleared over 95% of the TV markets:

The article mentions Stephen Brown. Didn't he produce a failed pilot of Pyramid years ago?

He produced the Donny Osmond revival. I remember he frequented ATGS and would answer questions about the show, usually the bizarre Winnerís Circle judging.
