TAKE YOUR PIC DEPT.
HOSTS OF PROBLEMS DEPT.
It’s not a great time to be the longtime host of an NBC show! In the last week, it’s come to light that in addition to swapping out Jay Leno for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, NBC is also possibly looking to replace Matt Lauer with Anderson Cooper on The Today Show. We know that unemployment is a big problem in this country — but in this case, we’re cool with it.
MAKING THE HOST OF A BAD SITUATION DEPT.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the MAD blog, we offer up the cover of issue #180 (January 1976) to commemorate the 36th anniversary of the release of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. The iconic poster has been parodied many times over the years, including by MAD — most recently in our 20 Dumbest People, Events and Things of 2010 issue to depict the Tonight Show rivalry between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien.
