Former ‘Tonight’ Producer Calls Leno Move ‘Depressing’

Jan 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Peter Lassally, longtime executive producer of “The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson,” said NBC’s decision to strip Jay Leno in primetime is “depressing,” http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/162378-Peter_Lassally_Saddened_by_NBC_s_Leno_Plan.php reports. According to the trade, the decision places less importance on the 11:35 p.m. time period to be inherited by Conan O’Brien, who Lassally notes should be “upset.” Lassally said, “To me that is sacred territory,” B&C adds.
