In a profile in this morning’s USA Today, Jay Leno declares “I am definitely done next year — with NBC.” This is certainly news to us, since, as TV Barn points out, Leno was supposedly still in discussions to possibly remain with the network in some other capacity after Conan O’Brien inherits The Tonight Show in 2009. We’d hate to have seen the look on Ben Silverman’s beautiful tanned face today when he found out that all the strippers, unicorns, and chocolate-covered Ferraris he’s sent to Leno’s office have been a waste.
