PICABO STREET appeared on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno on Friday. Street, on her family: "It's not like we're grungy hippies that don't shower and things like that. There's a lot of fallacies that can come along with that" (NBC, 2/27)....TNT's JIM LAMPLEY also appeared on the "Tonight Show." Lampley wore his CBS Olympic credentials, which CBS threatened to take away if he continued doing Olympic reports for the "Tonight Show." Lampley: "This is the credential that was threatened by a competing network. It may surprise you to know that a competing network has such enormous interest in you, Jay" (NBC, 2/27)....TARA LIPINSKI was on the "Late Show" Friday. DAVID LETTERMAN, on Lipinski's age, 15: "You can't even drive. ... Let me tell you something, you take your gold medal down to the DMV and see what happens. Nothing" ("Late Show," CBS, 2/27).
