Jay Leno Says He Still Has Affiliate Support

Nov 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In an hourlong interview with B&C, NBC’s Jay Leno said he had called affiliates last week to check in with them and “Unless they are the greatest actors in the world, they seem to be hanging in there and say they are in it for the long haul.”

Leno said he called them to get feedback. Despite all the criticism of NBC’s slotting his show as a 10 p.m. weeknight strip, Leno said “I’m not having a bad time at 10 o’clock now. I look at this as a job, and now I’m faced with a challenge, and it’s a challenge I find difficult but interesting.”

  1. This show is actually doing about what we thought it might oppposite first run 10pm programs. There is upside…formatics could be improved and guests could be more strategically considered (seriously, Michael Moore on the first night of sweeps for a show that skews to MOR older adults??). Jay does a good job keeping it together for the hour…but it is going to take some format work to keep this show moving through the hour and not undermine the late newscasts more than it already has.
