What happened? His ratings dropped or something?
He always had top rated late night show!
I think a combination of dropping ratings plus.. NBC Executives want their hand picked guy, Jimmy Fallon.
Although Leno is the most-watched late-night show host, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel has been making in-roads with the coveted 18-49 demographic. NBC brass doesn’t want Kimmel — who had been in the midnight time slot until recently moving up half an hour — to be firmly established before it gets a chance to move Fallon into Leno’s chair.
