"The Jay Leno Show," currently airing on NBC weeknights at 10 p.m., will go on hiatus Feb. 1 and return to its old 11:30 p.m. timeslot after NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics ends, TMZ is reporting, citing unnamed "sources."
According to the Web site, the fate of "The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien," currently in the 11:30 slot, is not clear.
Earlier today, the network denied a report that Leno’s show had been canceled, and issued that same denial when asked for comment on the time change by TMZ.
NBC did not respond to a request for comment on the timeslot change from the Star-Ledger.
