Barbra returns to ‘Tonight Show’ after 50 years

Babs and Jimmy

DVR alert! Barbra Streisand — who famously was called an exciting new star by the new host of The Tonight Show (on Johnny Carson) more than 50 years ago — returns to the place it all started tonight. She’ll make a rare television appearance, singing a duet with current host Jimmy Fallon, tonight on the NBC series.

The pairing isn’t so extraordinary. Barbra’s new album, Partners — which we reviewed here — drops tomorrow. Why not duet with Fallon? After all, she does one with Elvis.

Chelsea Handler gives funny props to Dallas lesbians on Jay Leno this week

Uncle Barky posted Wednesday about Chelsea Handler’s appearance this week on the Jay Leno Show. However, clips online don’t seem to make it to the part where she talks about Dallas, lesbians and Republicans. Thankfully, Bark made a note of it .

Or you could just catch the whole episode on Hulu here and fast forward to the 27:00 minute mark. Better yet, watch her whole bit. She’s hilarious and even a bit too edgy for ole Jay. He can’t quite keep up with her and so I’m putting my vote in now for her to take over The Tonight Show.
