Jay Leno Signs Deal to Host The Tonight Show Again

Jay Leno Signs a Deal to Take The Tonight Show Back

UDPATE: NBC is now denying that a deal has been made.

As the NBC late night mayhem continues, the latest news is that Jay Leno has signed a deal that will give him his old job back. Now that Conan O'Brien has refused to move to the 12:05 a.m., NBC has apparently inked a deal moving Leno back to his old 11:35 p.m. to 12:35 a.m. time slot.

This means he's back to hosting The Tonight Show, and O'Brien supposedly will finish out his run next week. Now the big question is where O'Brien will go next. How do you feel about Leno re-claiming The Tonight Show? Will you tune in or boycott to support O'Brien?

Yes to CoCo!!!but, this is not about leno.. NBC what are you doing this to yourself!? you don't have FRIENDS anymore.. and I doubt Chuck or Heroes are gonna do the trick, PLEASE DON'T LOSE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL WATCHING YOUSince I found Conan on TV, I watch him and love him!, so when I saw that he's gonna be early I was so happy, Leno was good, but I liked better Conan and was the only late nite show I watch, and I even see the episodes of the Andy show that conan produced. So obviously, I'm gonna follow Conan and Co.

I never watched the Tonight Show when Leno was the Host and I won't turn in if he is the host Again. I think it is a shady move by Leno and he will lose a lot of respect. As for NBC if it wasn't for the office i would't ven it watch it anymore. They are the ones that created all this mess. I watched Late Night with Conan O'brien and i was so happy when he moved to the Tonight Show, I think Conan is Hilarious and if ever does a show at another network I will watch it for SURE!!

I vowed to never watch Jay again once he took over the 10 PM hour (rarely watched him anyway since I like Letterman better), but if he does this to Conan I hope a ton of people join me. Conan is hilarious. Give him a chance!

Conan is fantastic. I think this situation is rather tacky and will lose NBC a lot of their viewership. I will not watch the show with Leno and so far I think that is a clear consensus from most people. Luckily, Conan is very talented and will probably end up else where and I hope they appreciate his ability.

I can't believe this! What a low blow!! I'm so glad that I got to see a tapiing of the tonight show with Conan. Maybe the mug I bought will be a collectors edition now haha. Poor Conan, he's so much funnier and more fun. I hope he finds another venue!

If this is true, I will never watch The Tonight Show. Shame on Jeff Zucker and Jay Leno!

if this is really true, then i will have lost all respect for Jay. this is such a mean move... When Conan talked, he talked about his respect for the other late nite talk show hosts after him - and this being Jay's move - shows how much class - he doesn't have! boo to jay!
