Oprah Makes Surprise Appearance During Leno's Seinfeld Interview On Inaugural Episode (VIDEO)

Jay Leno's new 10 o'clock show premiered tonight on NBC, and his first guest was his old friend Jerry Seinfeld. Seinfeld, decked out in a tuxedo, professed himself honored to be the inaugural guest on Leno's new show, however he expressed surprise that Leno couldn't find a bigger celebrity to be the first guest.

Seinfeld said he heard that Leno had tried to get Oprah but failed. Leno confirmed this, and Seinfeld promptly told him that he could get Oprah. A television screen then lowered and the talk show queen herself appeared.
