Amid rumors about the fate of "The Jay Leno Show" and additional rumors that suggest Leno could be moving back to his old 11:35 p.m. time slot, which is currently occupied by "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," a spokesperson for NBC sets the record straight.
A rep for the Peacock Network tells ET, "We have the best comedy team in the business. We remain committed to keeping Conan O'Brien on NBC. He is a valued part of our late-night line-up, as he has been for more than 16 years and is one of the most respected entertainers on television.”
Earlier Thursday, an NBC spokesperson denied rumors that Leno's show had been cancelled, telling ET: "Jay Leno is one of the most compelling entertainers in the world today. As we have said all along, Jay's show has performed exactly as we anticipated on the network. It has, however, presented some issues for our affiliates. Both Jay and the show are committed to working closely with them to find ways to improve the performance."
