Its a Reynolds…

NBC’s not-so-long national nightmare is over. The network confirmed Sunday they’ve asked Jay Leno, whose months-old show has sagged in the ratings, to move back to 11:35 p.m each night. NBC Universal Television Entertainment Chairman Jeff Gaspin told reporters Sunday that the network envisions Leno to bring the funny for a half-hour program before handing off to Conan O’Brien’s ‘Tonight Show’ at 12:05 a.m. No deal has been struck.

The news, delivered at the TV Critics’ Association (TCA) Press Tour in Pasadena, comes just days after Leno used his talk-show pulpit to skewer NBC on the day that various media reports emerged that his days at 10 p.m. may be done. Leno taunted his network by saying “I hear Fox is beautiful this time of year” and joking that the trust between him and the Peacock network is gone.
