Due to poor ratings for this show and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009), NBC wanted to move this show to 11:35 pm and shorten it to a half-hour, bumping "The Tonight Show" to 12:05 AM.

I Liked Leno on The Tonight Show but the new show is LAME.
Jay's monologue seems to have suffered in the transition from "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to this new show. The jokes aren't as funny and there are a lot more duds. Did he lose a lot of writers? Also, it seems like he doesn't have enough material to fill five hours per week anymore, and he can't get the guests he used to get. I've been a fan of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" since the very beginning when he took over from Johnny Carson, but this new show seems so padded and unfunny that I finally dropped it from my recording schedule a few days ago.
It wouldn't be so bad if he just did one hour per week, because then he'd have enough good material to fill the hour.
