“Hosted by legendary comedian and ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno, ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ covers all things automotive including classic cars, super cars, road tests, investments and the inner workings of the car collectors’ market,” CNBC says in its announcement. “The show has helped put CNBC on pace to deliver its 8th consecutive quarter of year-over-year ratings growth in prime time.”
