Well, Duh: The Jay Leno Show Officially Cancelled

Thanks NBC for telling us what the whole country already knew!

As expected, the Peacock announced Sunday morning that The Jay Leno Show has been cancelled.

"I can confirm that starting Feb. 12, Jay Leno will no longer air at 10 p.m.," said NBC Universal TV chairman Jeff Gaspin. "My goal right now is to keep Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon as part of our late-night lineup. As much as I'd like to tell you we have a done deal, we know that's not true."

NBC has placed the blame of the cancellation on the "affiliates," but we all know the Peacock just can't quit Leno's chin!

In place of Leno, Gaspin expects to fill the 10 pm gap with "two hours of scripted, another reality hour and combination of expanded Dateline or repeats."

Hmmm.. that sounds pretty familiar!

No word on O'Brien's next move, but as we've reported, Conando could either accept the time slot change, move to another network OR take the Peacock's money and run.

Gaspin said that Leno, O'Brien and Fallon were "incredibly gracious and professional" when he broke the news of the late night shake-up…

But what about Last Call with Carson Daly??????

Dear God, won't someone think of Carson??????

(Ha!)

    I don't think Perez writes anymore for his site. These posts don't remind me of the earlier posts from a few years ago….



  2. 2

    Keep Conan, Fallon and Carson.
    make the Chin just go away.



  3. 3

    Good first step. Now they need to cancel his chin.



  4. 4

    They should cancel Carson Daily. I haven't been able to sit through one episode of his show. And I think he's been on for 10 years.



  5. 5

    Hmmm….wonder how he would put a bad joke about this one! loollzzz saw this guy 2x in real person…nothing really exciting bout him except his vintage collections cars loollzzz

    I say get rid of the chin! He's seen his hayday. It's time for some new talent. If NBC keeps Leno around I think it would be in Conan's best interest to move to FOX or another network. I'm sure they can recongnize actual talent. As for Jimmy Fallon, I love his show! He's an honest host. You can tell he loves what he does, and he's hilarious. They should cancel Leno for good and keep their current line-up.



  7. 7

    Why didn't they just keep things the way they were!!! Both of these shows were conquering the ratings! WTF! NBC is run by a bunch of IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  8. 8

    This is BS! ok, Jay, let it go already and retire. Go to some other oulet and quit hogging the time slot that already belongs to other vey funny hosts that we would rather see, as already proven by your CANCELLED show. Hello!?!?!?!



  9. 9

    Dump Fallon and keep Carson….



  10. 10

    Umm Who gives a damn about Carson Daly, he is boring and his guests are equally boring.

  14. 14

  15. 15

    BRING BACK SOUTHLAND!

    hope he's out on tv for good! he's fugly!



  17. 17

    Conado???
    How is that witty at all???



  18. 18

    yeah!!!!fuck jayleno tired of his old ass



  19. 19

    i don't get why leno left the tonight show if he was still doing the same thing under his own name … and now they want to keep him somewhere in the late night line up? he should have stayed where he was! or quit the thing all together!



  20. 20

    Seems as though people are getting smarter and smarter these days. No one wants to watch fake and old anymore.
    Finally, no more ripping off of Howard Stern.

    I wish they'd keep Carson Daly on to DVR because he has some great musical guests you wouldn't normally get to see.



  22. 22

    I think Jay should re-launch his movie career! He could totally play Reese Witherspoon's father in one of her romantic comedies.



  23. 23

    Why is NBC so obsessed with Leno? He is sooo BORING and UNFUNNY. His 9:00 show had failure written all over it. I watched 15 minutes of it one time and it was nothing but recycled stuff from his 10:30 show. Time for him to go back to standup.



  24. 24

    I predict Carson Daly will be selling Shamwow in his new time slot.



  25. 25

    i much prefer dateline to leno!!

    stone phillips n hoda?? lol



  26. 26

    Re: lemonbird – Funny!



  27. 27

    You know who watches his show? Old white people.. Babyboomer types! He needs to retire and go play with his toys.



  28. 28

    Leno leaves fat and rich. His latest attempts suck. He's a bore and Carson never was and never will be replaced.



  29. 29

    mikey's cancelled! back to harvard, mikey!



  30. 30

    I'm confused, has it been cancelled or is it being moved to a later time slot, sounds more like the latter to me.
    I think whatever brainiac thought this lineup up in the first place should be fired. And if Jay wanted to leave the network last year they should have let him, time for him to retire anyway, he's not funny in the slightest sense of the word.



  31. 31

    Of course he doesn't write for this blog. The last lines of this post, regarding Carson Daly, were written by Craig Ferguson. Just search for his video about all this drama.

    CARSON NEEDS TO GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE INTERESTING MUSICAL ACT ARE NOW BEING BOOKED ON JIMMY FALLON ANYWAY….HE IS THE WORST INTERVIEWER EVER…AT LEST JIMMY IS CUTE AND FUNNY!!…CARSON IS SO GOD AWEFUL SCARY TO LOOK AT….HIS EYES ARE BUGGING OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS AND HIS FOREHEAD KEEPS GROWING LONGER AND LONGER IN ANOTHER YEAR HE WILL HAVE A HERMAN MUNSTER HEAD!!! LIKE I SAID AGAIN AND AGAIN LENO TO HIM OLD TIME FOR THE OLDER GEN WHO WANT TO HANG ON TO THE JOHNNY MEMORIES….CONAN BACK IN NEW YORK IN HIS OLD TIME SLOT AND HE GETS PAID OUT HIS ORIGINAL TONIGHT SHOW CONTRACT JUST CAUSE NBC WHERE FUCKING ASSHOLES TO HIM PLUS ALL OF US GEN XERS LOVE HIM….NOW JIMMY CAN HAVE CARSONS TIME SO THE GEN XERS WILL STAY UP TO WATCH HIM CAUSE NO TRL FANS ARE UP WATCHING CARSON TRUST ME THEY ARE ALL OUT CREAMING THEIR CHONIES OVER MILEY OR THE JONAS



  33. 33

    Of course. Leno is one thing on NBC that consistently brings in the ratings. Seems some people don't like him, but he gets the best ratings out of all of these guys. He really has the power to stay or go anywhere he would like. And let's be honest, Conan's monologue is usually unfunny. His show was better before.



  34. 34

    Good !!! Stupid show anyway!!! He never should leave the tonight show….



  35. 35

    NBC putting Leno against ABC and CBS' lineup was suicide for Leno. What were they thinking? Now Conan has to pay for NBC's BS move? I say Leno wanted to move - it crapped, so asta la vista Leno and leave the others alone. Conan deserves to stay in the Johnny Carson Studio!



  36. 36

    Leno sucks.



  37. 37

    Hey! I have a fucking idea! (Should make NBC pay me millions for this.)

    Just let Leno go! He's old and gross, looks like he needs a good haircut and isn't funny.

    Keep Conan and that cute little Fallon.

    Wasn't Leno supposed to retire? Sheesh!

    Carson Daily has all the personality of a door knob, and reminds me of the grown up version of the douche-baggy jocks I hated in high school. I want to know, who actually watches Last Call? I've met Jimmy Fallon and he's a really nice, sincere guy, and I think Conan has been the only funny guy on late night ever. Conan is intelligent though, so maybe that scares the people used to Jay Leno's dumbed-down brand of humor. I shouldnt talk though, I usually just watch "Chelsea Lately"
