Jay Leno Back To Hosting The Tonight Show at 11:35 Says TMZ
Jay Leno is reportedly back to hosting the Tonight Show on NBC at 11:35 to 12:35 according to sources at TMZ.
NBC must have negotiated a new deal as moving Leno to the later time slot breaches his contract but that now appears to be done.
This means Conan O'Brien is out.
The Jay Leno show was cancelled a few days ago and will go off the air in the 10pm time slot on February 12th.
Nikki Finke reports that O'Brien's people have not confirmed the one-hour move, but that NBC chief Jeff Zucker "is threatening to ice Conan," according to a Conan rep: "Zucker said, 'I'll keep you off the air for 3 1/2 years.'"
Conan O'Brien is still under contract with NBC at this time.
