Mariah Carey’s Cleavage Inspires Jay Leno’s First Decent Joke in Months

We probably should've given up on The Jay Leno Show weeks ago, but what can we say? Apparently, we're gluttons for punishment. Anyway, until Mariah Carey appeared on the program last night, it had been weeks since anything even remotely interesting happened on the show. However, from the moment Mariah walked onstage last night — and almost fell flat on her face — our eyes were glued to the TV. Mariah was nowhere near as unhinged as she famously was on TRL back around the release of Glitter, but she did take the opportunity to give Jay a seductive shimmy as she applied perfume to her cleavage. Jay must've been moved, for it inspired him to ad-lib his best joke since moving to the 10 p.m. time slot: "It's times like this I wish I had the desk."
