Some (entertainment reporter, probably from EW) goon exclaimed that NBC’s announcement that Jay Leno will be given a prime-time show is unprecedented. Steve Allen and Jack Paar had prime-time series. Where did he learn his trade??

I had wondered for a very long time why NBC didn’t make this kind of programming move for some of the very reasons now being cited. The only flaw is that Jay Leno stopped being funny a long time ago. The announcement did not clarify what will happen to existing drama series. It would be bitterly disappointing if L&O were dropped; this year and the last have been as consistently great as the first two.
