Press Tour Wednesday was devoted to NBC and their cable nets SyFy, Bravo, and USA. Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi dazzled during a Quickfire lunch, and the hilarious cast of Community (aka My New Favorite Show of The Fall) could not have been funnier. Two words: Joel McHale. An incredibly tan – and newly fit – Jay Leno capped the day off with more laughs. The most memorable moments, below:

I was like “Ryan is literally this [holds hands close together] size, look at the difference!” Joel McHale on Community co-star Donald Glover confusing him with Ryan Seacrest.

None of my Voltron jokes ever land with this guy. Dan Harmon, executive producer of Community joking about Chevy Chase being out of the pop culture loop.

I never read Alice in Wonderland. Fairy tales bore me and they always have. Harry Dean Stanton on whether he was familiar with the material in SyFy’s “Alice.”

She would not like their shoes, their nurse clogs. She would definitely take them to Barney’s.Michelle Trachtenberg on what her Gossip Girl character Georgina Sparks would think of the nurses on Mercy.

I’m rich now.Jay Leno (The Jay Leno Show) joking on how he’s become more confident than he used to be.
