NBC sets September premiere for 'The Jay Leno Show'
On Monday (June 1) night's premiere of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," the new host reassured viewers that they wouldn't need to wait too long for the return of his predecessor.
"He's going to be coming back on the air, I think in two days..." O'Brien joked of Jay Leno.
That wasn't exactly true, but NBC didn't even wait two days after O'Brien's first "Tonight Show" episode to announce the official date of Leno's return.
"The Jay Leno Show," Leno's new primetime Monday-through-Friday 10 p.m. series, will begin its run on September 14.
Although NBC's Tuesday press release was the first formal confirmation of Leno's premiere, the September 14 date had been rumored for some time.
It's unclear (or unofficial) if NBC will use the week of September 14 to launch its entire fall schedule, though it's doubtful the network would let the already tenuous Leno Experiment flounder without proper lead-ins.
Of "The Jay Leno Show," NBC boasts that it will be "the first-ever entertainment program to be stripped across primetime on broadcast network television and will showcase many of the features that have made Leno America's late-night leader for more than a dozen years."
