Analysis:Despite ousterplans,Leno leads ratings
NEW YORK — Jay Leno and the“Tonight”show is one of the few remain-ing successful programs that NBC has onits network. So why would its executivesthink about getting rid of him?NBC has con-ﬁrmed that it is build-ing a new studio forJimmy Fallon at itsNew York headquar-ters but refuses tocomment on reportsthat Fallon is due toreplace Leno on aNew York-based“Tonight”show asearly as next year.With Leno already taking potshots atnetwork executives regularly in hismonologue,the network risks repeatingthe nightmare of 2010,when ConanO’Brien failed at “Tonight”and NBCbrought Leno back.“They seem to be making the samemistakes over and over again with a newregime,”said Christine Becker,an associ-ate professor at Notre Dame Universityand author of the News For TV Majorsblog. “You kind of wonder what’s in thewater at NBC that is making them makethat decision.”On its face,such a move would seemlike a proactive strategy from NBC’s newcorporate owners at Comcast Corp.,known for its decisive decision-making.Leno,62,and his longtime rival DavidLetterman,65,are approaching the end of their long late-night reigns. Fallon,38and with his own late-night show gettingcritical acclaim,represents the next gen-eration. So does Jimmy Kimmel,45,atABC,and that network made the strategicchess move in January to give him thesame time slot as Leno and Letterman.
