I guess Jay Leno had more power than I thought: Jay Leno’s future on NBC up in the air
Don’t let the title fool you. The speculation is that they will either put him back on the Tonight Show, or move Conan and Jimmy Fallon to later. I’ve never been a huge Leno fan (not that I didn’t like him, just couldn’t get into the show with him) but I can understand why they would want to keep him around. The bright spot is if they did cancel or move him to a new time, it would give NBC a chance to put more programming back in those spots, and to keep what happened to Southland from happening again. At least that is my opinion.
