article imageJay Leno's prime-time show canned

By KJ Mullins     Jan 10, 2010 in Entertainment
NBC has announced Jay Leno's prime-time show will end as the Winter Olympics begins on February 12. This comes as no surprise to those watching the ratings. While Leno's show was satisfactory for the network, it did not fill NBC's affiliates’ needs.
NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin confirmed on Sunday that Leno's show is ending in mid-February.
Gaspin hopes to have Leno back on the air at 11:35 p.m. and move both Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon's shows back a half hour. However, that goal is not on paper yet.
There will not be new series filling the 10 p.m. time slot left open by Leno's departure. Viewers will be given more Dateline and reality shows.
