'The Tonight Show' with Jay Leno ... The Sequel

1/12/2010 9:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay LenoJay Leno will get his one-hour show back, and it will be called "The Tonight Show".... sources tell TMZ.

We're told NBC honchos still have to sit down with Jay's rep and put the finishing touches on a new deal, but NBC has signed off on the plan if Conan O'Brien leaves ... and Conan has made it clear that he's leaving the network, and not on good terms.

O'Brien took several cheap shots at Leno in his blistering letter, denigrating Leno's show as a "comedy program."

Sources tell TMZ Jay and Conan have not spoken with each other since NBC announced the switch.

It's looking increasingly like Conan may be making a deal with Fox for a late night show from 11:00 PM to midnight.

"It's looking increasingly like Conan may be making a deal with Fox for a late night show from 11:00 PM to midnight."

Corroboration, please — or is this just the idle conjecture that it seems?

I would follow C. Watch too much news already. Don't need to see the same thing I saw 4 hours ago. Or will see again in the morning. Conan FTMFW!

Jay is the lil guy on the playground that no one is playing with and he has told the teacher. Now the counselor is involved and is making the other kids play with him. Pretty sad.

Conan bombed as the Tonight Show host. Jay's 'Tonight Show' was a success. Conan will bomb over at Fox or wherever he lands.

I think it's for the best for all players.
I like Jay and Conan and wish them both well.

Conan couldn't draw traditional Tonight Show viewers.
Letterman beat him handily in that demographic. Leno
will once again get that demographic for the Tonight Show.

Conan did great on Late Night but didn't do well
on Tonight. He'll have the freedom on Fox to do what
he did on Late Night.

Everybody wins here except Conan's pride is hurt but
he'll get over that,

Jay needs to retire! No one thinks he is funny. Well, for the exception of a few old farts who like his 15 yr old jokes. Stale!

"O'Brien only appeals to low-brow, crass simpletons."
Oh I'm sorry we can't all be pompous douche bags like yourself. Jay Leno needs to retire to FL where all the old people still find him funny!

Wrong again Lisa, u idiot. Leno has fans of all ages; besides, o'brien ain't no 'spring chicken' as your grammy would say, when she's smoking a corn pipe & swigging from a jug of moonshine.
