Leno To Stay At NBC!!!!

| Filed under: TV NewsJay Leno

27lenospan__opt.jpg

They've just thrown a HUGE curve ball into the game!

Many people were expecting Jay Leno to leave NBC once his contract at the Tonight Show was up and he was unceremoniously dumped to make room for Conan O'Brien, the long-running program's new host.

Insiders predicted that the other networks would offer Leno, still a ratings draw after all these years, way too much money and he'd easily be wooed over to a competing net.

Well, everyone was WRONG!

According to the very reputable New York Times, NBC is going to announce that Leno is staying at the peacock network and they are giving him a nightly show at 10 P.M.

He's basically going to do the same show he's been doing - only earlier.

In other words, he just got a promotion!!!!!!!!

And he probably is getting paid quite handsomely for it.

No broadcast network has ever before offered this type of nightly show during prime time.

Conan and Letterman must be PISSED!!!

The move is a win-win situation for NBC, who is currently fourth in the ratings - behind ABC, Fox and CBS. Not only do they keep Leno and keep a competitor from getting him, but since they're sucking so hard in the ratings, they have nothing to lose by giving up their 10 P.M. time slot. In fact, they have a lot to gain!

The cost-cutting network, who has recently been laying off hundreds of employees, may be able to greatly reduce costs of developing and producing other prime-time shows by having Leno on at 10.

And, Jay is bound to bring in viewers AND advertising. AND he will help all the NBC affiliates boost their nightly news ratings.

Genius move!

    Re: Hot Monkey Love HATES GORILLAS!! – makes sense…took things too far w/ the king, knowing the tribe would be loyal, try to pick it apart from the inside out……too bad for him, we are as sharp as our leader………..the end :)
    .
    .
    prologue: to bad for him, at this point, he's too simple to go back under the radar….reminds me of a little twit at basketball the other day that went around following my daughter for an hour waaaay invading her personal space….unbefuckingbievable….even sat down half on my lap to sit next to her….i was just biting my tongue thinking that kid will never have a social clue……poor thing……then i thought…….lucky me to have such normal kids….woohoo

    This is the smartest move NBC has made in years! I think it has a good shot of being successful. A lot of people have to get up early for work and can't stay up to watch Leno or Letterman. It could bring in a whole new audience. I love Jay…can't stand Letterman or Conan.



  49. 49

    does that mean conan stays in NY? or does he still move to cali?

  53. 53

    I don't even know why Leno is so popular- he sucks. He's not even funny. Conan is awesome.



  54. 54

    Great move NBC!

  64. 64

    It's lose lose for NBC. Leno sucks, only dumbasses watch his shtick (just like brit or granny-maddie fans do).
    He still has 3-5 years on his contract, NBC would have to "buy" him out and in this econ, no way.
    In the end, WE all lose, having to watch this tired no-talent spew the same old shit day after day(just like brit or granny-maddie fans do). What a shame.

    NBC certainly has pinned all their aspirations on Jay Leno pulling them out of their financial "hole"…I hope it works out for them. If it doesn't, a lot more hard working people are going to find themselves without a job and wondering where their next meal is coming from, not to mention the fear of losing their house.

    Jay Leno is a remarkable talent, but he may be overrated and turn out to be a letdown at 10:00 P.M. I hope NBC really gave this decision some serious thought.



  75. 75

    I'm not sure what this means….is Conan going to be on after Leno? I don't believe it anyway, could just be gossip.

    NBC IS PATHETIC !! ITS NOT BAD ENUFF THAT THEY HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY IN THE BOTTOM OF THE RATINGS GAME FOR YEARS W/ SHITEOUS SHOWS (EXCEPT LAW & ORDER), BUT NOW THEY ARE ADDING A TALK SHOW IN ITS PRIME TIME SCHEDULE ??!! HOW ABOUT COMING UP W. GOOD SHOWS FOR A CHANGE ?! INSTEAD THEY TAKE THE EASY, LAME WAY…TALK ABOUT "DESPERATE" HOUSEWIVES !!!!

  83. 83

    Really?? Have they thought this through?? I just don't think Leno will beat out in a primetime tv setting. Maybe on Fridays when there is NOTHING good on anyway, but really that's bc no one is home watching tv anyway. I just dont see this- last ditch desperation move by NBC to keep him- working out. Leno screwed them when he decided not to retire anymore, they should have let him go wherever he wanted after that, let someone else deal with his indecisiveness.
    I am curious to see what Conan does with Lenos timeslot, as much as I love Conan, part of me just doesnt think he plays well to the over 50 crowd who watch Leno nightly, I worry his bits will be watered down to suit an audience who already know they dont like him and werent planning to tune in anyway… which will just cause his younger viewers to think he's a 'sell out'.

    Part of me thinks this story just isnt true, I really just dont think NBC studio heads are that dumb to give up the coveted 10pm slot 5 days a week. They are gonna have to trim a couple of their 'after 10pm' dramas from the schedule to do that, and thats a BIG RISK to lose one of their law & orders to take on a comedy/variety/talk hour which may not work in primetime, ie Rosie Live.

    I CANNOT STAND JAY LENO!! I have never meant one person who thinks he's funny. College students love Conan- his humor is fresh and quirky and hilarious. Leno is old and lame and the only person I've seen watch him is my granny when she can't fall asleep.

    GET RID OF HIM. Conan deserves to be Late Night King.



  87. 87

    Jimmy Kimmel is the only funny one!



  88. 88

    this is bullshit. i LOVE conan

    Kitty, I just noticed that you mentioned Jimmy Kimmel.
    I love Jimmy Kimmel
    Wasn't it hilarious, that exchange between Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel, when she made that video "I'm f..king Matt Damon", and Kimmel responded with "I'm f..king Ben Affleck".
    I watched it on youTube so many times !
