This fall NBC scheduled Jay Leno’s new talk show five nights a week in primetime, getting rid of dramas at that hour. But Leno’s ratings took a nosedive almost immediately, hurting the lead in to the local news on many NBC affiliates. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=122372384
There are rumblings that NBC’s experiment with Jay Leno in prime time may be nearing an end. It appears Leno may get a 30-minute show at 11:35 p.m. EST, pushing back Conan O’Brien’s Tonight and Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night.
