The Tonight Show with Manny Pacquiao?

Well by now you know that Jay Leno is staying with NBC and moved to an earlier timeslot with Conan taking over the Tonight Show. We also know that Manny Pacquiao is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Now what would happen if the two collided? Well in this article I read in what would happened if Late Night and Pac-man joined forces.

Here's and insert of the week's lineup if Manny hosted the show
just imagine, each weeknight could feature Pacquiao in a different format.

On Mondays, Pacquiao could host "Boxing with the Stars," in which each week a Hollywood celebrity gets the tar beat out of him or her by an emerging male or female pugilist who wants national attention.

On Tuesdays, Pacquiao could host "Who Wants to be a Sports Millionaire," in which each week he asks sports trivia questions of eager fans who think they know everything there is to know about winning athletes, ranging from Max Baer to Jackie Robinson, from Olga Korbut to Jackie Joyner-Kersee.

On Wednesdays, Pacquiao could host "Whose Punchline is It, Anyway," in which each week rising young comics join old comedy pros live on stage to trade unrehearsed verbal jabs.

On Thursdays, Pacquiao could host "Olympic Sports Idol," in which aspiring athletes in every field of Olympic sports compete each week for audience votes with the winner joining the next Olympics team.

On Fridays, he could host "The Manny Pacquiao Show," a high-quality variety show, you know, the live show that NBC should have produced last week instead of the bomb it dropped with Rosie O'Donnell.

Why not? American television is ready for Manny Pacquiao... but this is a good article to generate ideas off of. It a good source of inspiration.
