Jay Leno Show Cancelled: NBC To Move Leno From 10 pm to 11:35?
NBC has announced that the Jay Leno show has been cancelled. The Jay Leno Show will go off the air as of Feb. 12, 2010. Rumors have swirled that the end of the Jay Leno Show at 10 pm will mark the end of the comedian's tenure with NBC. It's been widely reported that Leno may star in a half-hour show aired at 11:35 pm. TMZ is reporting that indeed a new version of the Jay Leno Show will air at 11:35 pm. The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien will move to 12:05 if NBC can come to an agreement with O'Brien.
NBC had originally hoped to give the Jay Leno Show a 52-week trial at the 10 pm slot, but low ratings and complaints from local affiliates forced the early cancellation of the Jay Leno Show.
