NBC has made it official. “The Jay Leno Show” in primetime will end as the Winter Olympics begin February 12th.
NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin told critics in Los Angeles that NBC wants Leno to move back to following late local news. However, talks are continuing on whether Leno will agree to that deal and move Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon back a half hour each.
No word yet on what NBC will run in the 10-11 pm ET/PT slot Monday-Friday once the Olympics wrap up.
