Laugh Track....The Dating Game
NBC’s Jay Leno: “Martha Stewart has announced she has joined Match.com … (and) so far, 1,000 men have asked to connect with Martha Stewart on Match.com, a thousand men, which sounds like a lot until you realize 2,000 men have tried to contact Jason Collins since he came out” (“The Tonight Show,” NBC, 5/2).
CBS’ David Letterman noted Martha Stewart has signed up on Match.com “and she said she would like to meet a wealthy guy in his 50’s to 70’s and I thought, ‘Well, what about a New York Yankee? Call one of those guys?’”
Letterman noted that Collins has announced “that he was gay and it’s the first active major league player (to do so) and it is prompted a wide variety of reaction from around the world.” The broadcast then aired a taped message about the reaction Collins’ announcement has elicited. Announcer: “Former President Bill Clinton said, ‘Jason’s announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community.’ NBA Commissioner David Stern said, ‘We are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue.’ And Martha Stewart said, ‘That's one more guy who won't sleep with me.’ This has been ‘Reactions to the Jason Collins Announcement’” (“Late Show,” CBS, 5/2).
