The 9 PM season premiere episode, “Made in America,” celebrates cars built in America, by Americans, using all American parts. Jay heads to President George W. Bush’s ranch to ask all about his famous Ford pickup, then he challenges Wanda Sykes to a race for the ages…in a minivan, takes a ride with Mike and Molly star Billy Gardell, and gets his feathers ruffled by comedian Gabriel Iglesias’ Smokey and the Bandit Trans-Am. And, throughout, he celebrates the hard work, ingenuity, and diversity of the American spirit.
In the 10 PM season premiere episode, Jay Leno answers the age-old question: is bigger really better? He heads to Las Vegas to cruise around with larger-than-life comedian Brad Garrett, goes on an adventure in J.B. Smoove’s boat-sized Lincoln, works up an appetite in a giant hot dog car, heads out on a training mission with the Marines and their enormous V-22 Osprey, and even finds that driving a VW bug is exciting if it’s 40% bigger. And, through it all… he’ll find out if size does really matter.
