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.

NBC doesn't own the studios anymore. The current owners are simply getting it ready for new tenants, which could be moving in immediately since Jay's departure was known well in advance. Conan's at Universal was just as quickly dismantled and painted over.
