Jay Leno's return to "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday didn't quite count as his third tour of duty, but it did feel like old times: The "How Bad Is It" jokes, the general sense that you've stumbled into the Friar's Club by accident, that Vegas tie-and-shirt combo!

Good to have you back, Jay.

Yes, he took over the "Tonight" monologue Tuesday, and ... it wasn't bad at all. A few good political one-offs, a walk down memory lane. The only thing missing was a plug, which is the real reason he was there. So I'll provide that for him instead: "Jay Leno's Garage" arrives on CNBC Wednesday at 10 p.m.

That's right, Jay's baaack ... and if you check back here a bit later, we'll weigh in on "Garage."
