Jay Leno, the man with the highest ratings in late night TV, is about to be out of a job!
The long-time Tonight Show host will step down in February and allow Jimmy Fallon to take over at 11:35. But unlike the Conan O’Brien debacle of 4 years ago, this time, Jay will be gone from the NBC show for good.
So where does a workaholic like Jay go from here??
The offers for a new gig are ALREADY pouring in from networks who want Jay to come bat for their team! And some of these suitors are pretty surprising!
For starters, we hear Jay is being tapped for a show on CNN! The cable news channel is now being run by Jeff Zucker, the man who orchestrated the first ouster of the late night king from the Tonight Show in 2009 when he was President of NBC!
Would Jay really want to go work for the guy who almost ruined his career??
Sources say the two met for a meeting in Burbank recently to discuss potential projects!
