Jay Leno Axed on Prime Time

Written By David D'Angelo on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 | 1/12/2010

After performing poorly against the relatively drama dominated slot at 10:00pm, NCB had decided to move back Jay Leno and his "Jay Leno Show" out of Prime Time. Leno's show will be aired at 11:30pm.

This was decided only three months after NBC made a bold decision to move the show to prime time and test the waters on how the show will be received by viewers.

"Welcome to 'The Jay Leno Show.' As you know, we're not just a show anymore, we are now a collector's item," he said in opening the show Monday, January 11.

According to CNN, Jeff Gaspin, chairman of NBC Universal Television Entertainment, announced Sunday that the network was taking Leno, former host of "The Tonight Show" out of the prime-time slot because the show "didn't meet affiliates' needs" despite performing at acceptable levels for the network. The last show will air February 11 to make way for the 2010 Winter Olympics, which airs starting February 12.
