'Jay Leno Show' Ending Earlier Than Scheduled


'Jay Leno Show' Ending Earlier Than Scheduled
NBC quietly changes the schedule, pulling back the last episode of the doomed talk show two days earlier to accommodate repeats.


NBC can't wait to get rid of its failed experiment, "The Jay Leno Show". Instead of ending it on Thursday, February 11 as previously scheduled, the variety show will pull down its curtain two days earlier on February 9.

In the updated programming schedule, NBC puts a repeat of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" on February 10 at 10/9c and two back-to-back repeat of "The Office" on February 11. NBC releases no statement regarding the reason of this change.

Jay Leno is due to return to "The Tonight Show" on March 1. Conan O'Brien previously was in the position for almost eight months, but the declining rating of "Jay Leno Show" has prompted the Peacock to push Jay back to 11.35 hour. Conan preferred to quit "Tonight" with $45 million in compensation.

Jay Leno has so far been blamed as the villain in the exit of Conan from late night talk show. However, he is slated to tell his side of story on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" this Thursday, January 28.
