Jay Leno spent most of his Wednesday night monologue joking about Michael Jackson’s molestation charges. He joked, “Yesterday here in California, police raided Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in a criminal investigation. They didn’t say exactly what they were looking for. Well, there’s a switch, somebody keeping Michael dangling. Huh? That’s kind of different there.” He later joked, “Court TV is reporting that a 12-year-old boy has accused Michael Jackson of sexual abuse, but Michael has an alibi. He said at the time in question he was with a 13-year-old boy. He should be okay. Police said today they are searching Michael’s house, looking for anything unusual, you know, like a girl.” Leno then joked, “Well, as we are speaking, authorities are trying to get Michael to surrender. Hey, why don’t they try candy? Huh? Works for Michael. Hey, you don’t know. No, they said, if convicted, Michael could face up to eight years in prison. And let me tell you something, I don’t think he’s gonna like the pony rides at San Quentin, okay? It’s a little bit different.” And finally, Jay joked, “Well, CBS announced tonight they’re gonna pull the Michael Jackson special that was gonna air later this month. Next week, I think it was gonna — not going to air it. In place will be a new show, ‘CSI: Neverland Ranch’.”
