Jay Leno doesn’t move to NBC’s 10 p.m. slot until Sept. 14, but starting later this month, fans can find original mini-monologues from the former late-night host at that hour, embedded in the network’s promos for the program, reports Variety.

Promos for the weeknight strip are already airing at 10 p.m. sharp and by the end of the month they’ll include new topical material from the host himself.

"From the moment he left ‘The Tonight Show’ until the moment his new show starts, there won’t be a day where Jay doesn’t appear on NBC," NBC Universal TV Group chief marketing officer John Miller said.

  1. As of last night, Letterman has overtaken Conan in the ratings. Don’t be surprised if NBC fires Conan and brings back Jay (which they should). Conan is just not funny and his shticks are stupid.
