  • Paul Reiser disses NBC on NBC's 'The Tonight Show'

    Comedian Paul Reiser, who had a long-running hit on NBC with “Mad About You,” is not pleased about the network canceling his new show.

    (Wait–Paul Reiser had a new show on NBC?)

    The funnyman’s self-titled comedy lasted just two episodes before getting the axe from NBC honchos. On Monday night, Reiser laid into the network with his appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”—which the network had previously booked for him to, ahem, promote his new show.

    “NBC, to my knowledge, they don’t traditionally make bad decisions. Have you heard that? I don’t know what your experience is,” Reiser deadpanned to Leno, who suffered his own humiliation at the hands of NBC over the confusion of whether Conan O’Brien was replacing Leno on “The Tonight Show.”

    “It turns out they said we enjoy missing you more than actually having you,” Reiser joked. “But listen, I don’t take it personally. Listen, when you’re the last place network, you don’t want to jeopardize that. You’ve found your niche. Stay there. So I get it.”

    Zing!

    Reiser also freaked out fellow guest Christina Aguilera, whose new show, “The Voice,” premieres on NBC this week.

    “So now that you’ve scared the crap out of me…” she laughed.

    Reiser tried to allay her fears, but it was waaaaay too late.
