Leno bets on reboot of Groucho Marx game show

-

"star-crossed" is a brave and brutally honest take on her marriage to singersong­writer Ruston Kelly that now joins the long list of records detailing break ups. It's a story of courage and honesty and a stark contrast to the warm glow of "Golden Hour," with Musgraves showing a vulnerabil­ity and willingnes­s to grow artistical­ly that is often in short supply among artists at her level of popularity.

If leaving the storied role of “The Tonight Show” host mandates retirement, Jay Leno ignored the memo.

His passion for anything with wheels and an engine is on display in “Jay Leno’s Garage,” returning Sept. 22 on CNBC. And he’s got a new game show, a syndicated reboot of “You Bet Your Life,” debuting Monday (check local listings for times, stations).

“You Bet Your Life” first aired from 1950 to 1961 with famed comedian Groucho Marx, followed by a short-lived 1992 remake with Bill Cosby. In the new version, Leno shares host duties with Kevin Eubanks, the former “Tonight” band leader who’d gleefully rib the comedian when a joke fell flat.

“People seem to like that camaraderi­e, because we are friends and we know each other,” Leno said.
