Buzz In: What Should NBC Do With the Jay Leno Show?

Yesterday the rumors were flying about the fate of The Jay Leno Show. By now we all know that the show hasn't exactly proved to be ratings gold for NBC, but what will the network do about it? At first, we heard that the show had been canceled, and later there was word that NBC was going to give Jay his 11:30 time slot back and pull the plug on Conan O'Brien. NBC later admitted that they are toying with the idea, but nothing has been set in stone yet.

Now, I can't imagine that NBC would just up and fire Conan, and what would happen to The Tonight Show? NBC has reportedly vowed to find ways to improve Jay's show to help it perform better, but there isn't a clear plan of how they plan to accomplish this goal. I'm assuming we'll have a better answer from the execs at this weekend's TCA, but what do you think — what should NBC do with The Jay Leno Show?

Doglvr again ! Thinking of My Name is Earl and the "KARMA" concept. This is Karma, Jay Leno took the job David Letterman wanted and now Letterman's viewers are millions and Jay is almost without a job. This is Karma

they definitely need to cancel Jay, let him pursue other projects on his own. Leave Conan's show alone.

I read someone's comment about Craig Ferguson. I thought of that too about luring Craig to NBC but Letterman is Craig's boss ! They are too much alike in their witty-genius sense of humor. I could never make up my mind. I am a real fan of Letterman since the 1970s when he was on in the mornings. Again, let Jay go fix his car. How selfish can someone be to have one entire week at the same time for the same show.. boring. Please bring back "My Name Is Earl' too much Karma to be fixed. And "Without a Trace' could be on NBc too. They are many people out there that have not been found :) Also this would open the time of ALL THE LAW AND ORDER SERIES TO BE ON NBC AT 10 PM. While NBC is canceling Jay Leno, please cancel all of the reality shows too !!! Who cares about what normal star crazed people are doing. My niece receiced her BS degree is theater. Aren't there nice looking people graduating from theater or jounalism college. And wnat about 'Dateline' with Chris Hanson. Those stories were true and interesting. FIRE JAY NOW, he is rich enough. Or let him go on on VH1 or cable station. I am tired of his voice, stupid phony laughter, and introduction... keep Conon and Fallon. They are young with new ideas. But I still watch Letterman and then I 'catch Craig"

I think NBS should CANCEL Jay Leno. Let Conon and Fallon stay on the same time (even though I watch Letterman and Craig F) Then that one hour of NBC time would open the time slot for more all the 'Law and Order' series. Please bring back 'My Name Is Earl' too and bring back 'Without a Trace' on NBC ! Please keep 'The Office and 30 Rock.. they are the few good TV shows NBS offers along with Law and Order ! Bye Bye Jay, I do not even spend $$$ on him in Vegas and I live here

This is so wrong. CoCo is SO much better than Jay. How could NBC even think of moving Conan?

Jay Leno thinks he is funnier than he is. They have the worst band in late night and some of the worst writers. But on a completely selfish level, I kind of wish Conan were back at 12:35 so I can go back to watching Dave and then Conan just like the good old days. Give Jimmy Fallon the Tonight Show... seriously, it couldn't hurt.

Cancel Leno, then fire Jeff Zucker. Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally. No one who is that bad at their job should get to keep it.

I didn't think Leno was funny on "The Tonight Show," but his new show at 10 pm has brought him to a whole new, unwatchable level. I'm a big fan of Conan, and despite the network's "statement of support," I think NBC has shown him a tremendous amount of disrespect.

"What should NBC do with The Jay Leno Show?" They should apologize.

They totally need togive Leno the ax. He's not failing because of his time slot he's failing because he's not funny. I used to watch Letterman faithfully because I enjoyed his style of comedy much more than Leno. What they should do is get rid of Leno leave Conan where he is and then lure Craig Ferguson away from CBS to follow Conan. If they want to keep Jimmy Fallon give him that time slot that Carson Daly had (has)?

They can do whatever with Leno (I don't think he's funny, personally) but let Conan stay where he is! The new show is great and we finally have Andy back!

Conan is Awesome!! I enjoy his humor! So i'll say Cancel Leno!

I think that Conan and Leno are both light years ahead of Jimmy Fallon in terms of being funny. I think they should go back to the old model and put Conan back at 12:35 and Leno at 11:35.

I completely agree with all of the posts -- I don't know anyone who watches the Jay Leno show, they should just cancel it. Let Conan stay where he is.

Conan is awesome! Jay better not take over for him, or I'll be so mad. It's like NBC is trying to fail on purpose...
