Leno At Ten--Every Night?

I think this is a huge mistake. Most people wait up for the news at 11 P.M., so that makes ten o'clock prime time, IMO. I like Jay Leno, but in prime time, I expect to watch drama, and many people like comedy or police shows. I don't think this is going to work for NBC or Jay Leno's advantage. What's your opinion?

Re: Leno At Ten--Every Night?

well, they have tons of news magazine shows at 10pm,
so it's not a stretch to see a talk show host at that time.
assuming the format gets adjusted a bit with more A/V
and less talk, it should work. personally, I work construction
job hours, so I can't stay up late enough to watch Jay now.
think of it another way... FOX only has 2 hour primetime
then the news at 10pm, so all NBC is doing is shaving off
an hour of expensive primetime content in favor of Jay.
Not much different from all the cheap reality shows you
see now a days.

Re: Leno At Ten--Every Night?

I was pretty shocked when I moved to Ohio and discovered that grownups stayed up SO LATE to watch the news! : I have never, ever gotten used to 11 o'clock news. Growing up, sitcoms went until 9, and that's when the crime shows came on. The end of family viewing. The news came on at 10, and the late shows at 11.

I miss central time.

I think Jay Leno could make anything he does a success. I'm happy he will be on earlier because I have to get up at 5 am for work and now I might just make it up long enough to see him once in a while. We caught his act in Las Vegas last year and enjoyed that very much, too.

Re: Leno At Ten--Every Night?

I like Jay Leno a lot. I think this idea is worth a try, since there are very few series worth watching anyway.

I agree, the central time zone is the best! I grew up near Chicago and lived in Minneapolis, and it was so much better to get stuff an hour earlier.

Ironic,isn't it? The original LATE NIGHT...
On prime time. I think I smell Zeppelin fumes. Or a doughnut-holed hamburger.

Sadly I can't see that, wrong country apparently.

Youtube is my friend.#

Another awsome chatshow host is former Simpsonite Conan O'Brien.

Oh, no, Hugh, not him! Watch Craig Ferguson, if you can. Oh, you poor soul, to have to watch "you know who!" (I really dislike him!)
