I am normally in bed long before the late night shows begin. If I am awake, I am not normally watching them. Unfortunately, I caught The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I was sickened by all his jokes about the Michael Jackson trial.

What is funny about child sexual abuse? Nothing. It is tragic either way you look at the man's guilt or innocence. I left after two jokes since I could see that this line of humor would continue through the entire monologue.

I think these late night shows that make jokes of celebrity life, current events, and other inconsequential events in our world, deliver a mediocre brand of humor.
