Jay Leno

NBC Quickly Wipes Away His Memory

2/7/2014 5:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0207-jay-leno-splash-sign-beforeNBC is already distancing themselves from Jay Leno ... by erasing his name off the side of the building where he shot "The Tonight Show."

The Peacock network sent a team of painters armed with rollers and a forklift to white-out Jay's billboard -- just ONE FRICKIN' DAY after he signed off for good.

Here's what's interesting ... Jimmy Fallon's moving the show to NYC, so the net's not really under a deadline to change the signage before Jimmy takes over the reigns. Guess they just wanted to let Jay know that this "goodbye" is permanent. 

Somewhere, Conan O'Brien is smiling.

Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld are the two greatest comedians who ever lived.

While Jimmy's hot, and deservedly-so.

The true test will be with the affiliates.

IF Jimmy can appeal on the same broad stage Jay did.

Or if it goes right over everyone's head out there in the sticks, woods and smaller communities.

If they don't like you they don't like and Jay comes back.

-to save the day yet again.

Of all the dudes Jay's hired and helped?

John Melendez ranks and rates way up there.

One of the savvy and gutsy and courageous and brightest dudes -

Ever to come out of the Stern show.

"Stuttering John" has s--s-s-ss-sss-ure come a long way.

Congratulations to Jay, John and the rest -

For these great runs one after another after another.
