NYT: Leno To 11:35PM; Conan To 12:05AM; Fallon To 1:05AM
The New York Times‘s Media Decoder column is reporting that after the Olympics end February 28, Jay Leno will move from his 10PM time slot to the 11:35PM slot he occupied when he hosted “The “Tonight Show”, Conan O’Brien would move his show to 12:05AM, and Jimmy Fallon would begin at 1:05AM.
Pressed by affiliates and shrinking ratings, NBC has a plan in the works to radically alter its late-night television lineup, restoring Jay Leno to his old spot at 11:35 each weeknight, while pushing the man who replaced him, Conan O’Brien, to a starting time of 12:05 a.m.
NBC executives held extensive discussions with both Mr. Leno and Mr. O’Brien Thursday about the future of the network’s late-night lineup.
Officially, NBC says no final decisions have been made.Click here for reuse options!
