Leno Hints He May Switch Networks In 2009
Jay Leno may jump to another network after his scheduled departure from the Tonight show in 2009. According to L.A. Weekly columnist Nikki Finke, who has been monitoring Leno's monologues lately, Leno has been hammering NBC for its low ratings. On Tuesday night, Leno, taking note of Fred Thompson's decision to leave Law & Order and suddenly vaulting into third place among GOP candidates, remarked: "He leaves NBC and his ratings automatically go up. ... I hope that works for me."
