Default Jay Leno Gets Primetime 10PM Spot on NBC

"He may be losing his late-night hour on NBC, but Jay Leno isn’t leaving the network. NBC today announced that The Tonight Show host Jay Leno will be moving into primetime with The Jay Leno Show."
Great. Now I'll sleep better knowing all is right with the world.
Jay Leno Gets Primetime 10PM Spot on NBC Your Entertainment Now

Quote:
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 9, 2008 – Jay Leno will host a new comedy/talk show on NBC five nights a week in primetime, beginning in the fall of 2009. The show will originate from Burbank, Calif., and will air Monday through Friday, 10-11 p.m./9-10 p.m. CT. The announcement was made today by Ben Silverman and Marc Graboff, Co-Chairmen, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. This show will be the first-ever entertainment program to be stripped across primetime on broadcast network television.
Quote:
Leno will sign off as host of The Tonight Show on May 29, 2009. His new show will showcase many of the features that have made Leno America’s late-night leader for more than a dozen years. Signature elements will include his opening monologue and well-known comedy segments “Headlines,” “Jaywalking” and “Battle of the Jaywalking All-Stars.”

As previously announced, Conan O’Brien will take over The Tonight Show
Don't mind me. I'm still P.O.'d they took Arseneo off for a couple of airheads. Leno and Letterman.

Even Without Writers, Leno Tops Letterman - TV Decoder Blog - NYTimes.com
He's just one of those entertainers who made a great guest, but didn't transition into a host of the caliber I would like.
I never used to miss Carson or Hall. I tried to give Jay a chance, but finally lost interest altogether. Letterman I can take in very small doses (once or twice a year). Conan the barbarian, I can't stand at all.

Conan comes on and I change the channel..

For me..I think it's a generational thing. I liked Carson and I will watch Leno.I just don't think Letterman is funny. Frankly...I spend far more time on the Discovery,History,C-SPAN and News channels...

I'm not a Leno fan. I never have been. He is a joke reader. He isn't a funny person to me. Conan can be funny but I almost never watch him. Same with Letterman. But Leno is a complete bore to me. Pat Sajak is funnier. I don't think any of them is as good as Carson.

Same here... I've also only watched a single episode of Friends, Jerry Seinfield, Sex and the City, Survivor and almost every other wildy popular TV show of the last ten years. In fact, the last TV show that I actually watched on a regular basis was Deadliest Catch and that was only the first season.
