Jay Leno cracks jokes about his future at NBC on his show

Getprev Jay Leno told his audience during the taping of his show today that he knows NBC has not canceled his show.

How does he know this?

"I don't think there is any truth to the rumors. See, it's always been my experience that NBC only cancels you when you're in first place. So we are fine. We are OK."

Leno said he heard of his imminent cancellation on the radio this morning and then looked at the bright side of things.

"But Kev, if we did get canceled it will give us time to do some traveling. I understand that Fox is beautiful this time of year."

The transcript was provided by NBC.

Jay Leno may regain 'Tonight Show' perch

If the head honchos at NBC have any brain matter left, they'll move Conan the Barbarian to 10 pm and give the Tonight Show back to Jay.

I miss Leno at 11:30 p.m. Conan isn't funny. Leno is.

Not a Conan fan. I've been watching Letterman since Conan took over. If Jay went back to the Tonight Show, I would gladly switch back.

Always thought Conan O'Brien was a poor choice as a replacement for Leno. Craig Ferguson would have been my choice.

If Leno's back on the Tonight Show, I'll start watching it again.

Who are you people? Jay Leno is about as funny as a plank of wood, with all the charm of a used car dealer. NBC ought to get rid of him completely and let Conan continue to develop his version of the Tonight Show, which so far has been the best late night program since Carson retired.

I have always liked Conan better and think he has not gotten a fair shake (can you recall any other replacement who has had to then compete with the person he replaced for audience share on the same network?) with Leno essentially doing his same old schtik.

Support Conan all the way!
