As I have said before on this blog, it’s amazing to me given the way that Jay Leno has worked to rebuild the Tonight Show’s ratings that NBC wants to make a change. Now, it turns out, via The Hollywood Reporter, that Jay Leno has a plethora of folks courting him including CNN. Given that CNN’s news ratings are floundering and their non-news shows ratings are not, this would make good sense if Jeff Zucker can make it happen.
