I just finished watching this and I'm convinced that Paul Reubens could have read the phone book and made it entertaining. I even forgot I was watching Jay Leno for a minute there. The best thing about the interview was his story about the record he made. It wasn't really funny per se, and it probably never even happened, but he is just such an engaging storyteller that he makes it work in ways few actors can. Such an underrated actor overall.
Also the second-best retro character performance this year only to Mark-Paul breaking out Zack Morris.

Forte only really works when the stars allign. The Spelling Bee Sketch, for example. His GOD AWFUL Bush act has really soured me on him. I don't necessarily want him to go, I just want him to stop doing Bush. Seth as head writer intrigues me quite a bit.
