On Friday Molly Shannon appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Screening on NBC it was obviously a good chance to plug Kath and Kim which premieres this week in the US.
Shannon appeared on two segments of the chat show, and the plug was slipped in with a clip just before the finished. It totalled about 90 seconds.
But wait till you hear what she had to say….
“I have a new TV show starring with the lovely Selma Blair. It’s created by a super, super talented writer Michelle Nader, she is a female force of talent.”
For shame Molly ….it is adapted by Michelle Nader who was did the early work on the US translation before moving on.
As Nader has even stated herself, “I’m not doing that show.”
To be so quick to overlook the show’s Australian roots (not to mention its true creators) is disappointing given NBC ads have plugged it as “Australia’s #1 show” and the critics are all over the local comparisons.
“I’m just so proud to be associated with this comedy it also stars John Michael Higgins, Mikey Day and it’s just a wonderful comedy,” said Molly Shannon.
The Leno episode airs on Monday on the Comedy Channel.
