You Bet Your Life was hilarious with Groucho. If you ever have a chance, check them out on YouTube. Groucho's innuendos, lack of PCness and his demeanor on that show made it a fun show to watch.

Now this Jay Leno thing.... meh.

Why remake a classic?

WRONG, again, @Kentarogaijin 11:13am. “Pathé!”, the French film company doesn’t have the rights to Leno’s reboot. It’s being distributed by FOX and has been sold in 85% of North American markets. - Pretty impressive.

Leno would probably observe that “*someone’s frequent, irrepressible tic’ may cause them to not complete a full thought, or sentence. A medical evaluation may be a good course of action.*” -

Not sure though about international markets. Probably wouldn’t do well in China. Perhaps most Chinese people might think “You Bet Your Life” is a reality-show for people speaking out against “the Party”?

Groucho: "You've been married for 11 years and have 9 children. How do you explain that?"

Contestant: "Well Groucho, I love my wife."

Groucho: "I love my cigar too, but I take it out once in a while."

I'm not sure if the above exchange really happened on You Bet Your Life, but I want to think it happened. One thing for sure, Groucho was one of the funniest men who ever walked the earth.

Man, I loved Groucho and his brothers! That show was fabulous I am sure I can skip the remake. Forty or fifty years too late. Wrong generation.

If that is the official Library of Congress logo in the background, I hope they didn't pay much for it.
