The following are some of the trivia items that appear on Jay Leno's biographical trivia page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005143/bio:
  • Release of his book, "How to Be the Funniest Kid in the Whole Wide World (Or Just in Your Class)".
  • Release of his autobiography, "Leading with My Chin" by Jay with Bill Zehme.
  • Release of the book, "Eddie Krumble is the Clapper" by Dito Montiel.
  • Release of the book, "The Leno Wit: His Life and Humor" by Jay Walker.
  • Release of the book, "The Late Shift: Letterman, Leno and the Network Battle for the Night" by Bill Carter.
  • Release of his book, "If Roast Beef Could Fly".
However, if one attempts to edit the biographical trivia, one will find that there is supposed to be more to those items:
  • (2005) Release of his book, "How to Be the Funniest Kid in the Whole Wide World (Or Just in Your Class)".
  • (1996) Release of his autobiography, "Leading with My Chin" by Jay with 'Bill Zehme' (qv).           
  • (2007) Release of the book, "Eddie Krumble is the Clapper" by Dito Montiel.
  • (1997) Release of the book, "The Leno Wit: His Life and Humor" by Jay Walker.
  • (1993) Release of the book, "The Late Shift: Letterman, Leno and the Network Battle for the Night" by Bill Carter.
  • (2004) Release of his book, "If Roast Beef Could Fly".
As one can see, these items are supposed to have years at the start of each item, but none of those years are actually displaying to readers.

While the phrasing of these trivia items even with the years could be improved (for example, it's unclear what the Dito Montiel novel has to do with Leno from this item; apparently Leno is a character in it, but that's not mentioned here), I recommend that IMDb find a way to resolve the bug that is causing the years in parentheses at the start of the items not to display.

Good catch, thanks.  I was sure that we fixed this already once, however, a new ticket is open for the appropriate team now.
