Jay Leno was no math for 10pm

Jay's walking off prime time. Confirming days of rumors, the chairman of NBC  announced that starting Feb. 12, The Jay Leno Show will no longer air at 10 p.m. but that the network hoped to keep Leno for an 11:35 p.m. show, Conan O'Brien for 12:05 p.m. and then Jimmy Fallon after that.  "It's not a done deal yet."  The Jay Leno Show "did not meet affiliate needs" but that through it all, Leno and O'Brien have been "incredibly gracious and professional.  I just can't believe that NBC was not ready to give Jay more time ..but now Letterman can quit the public feeling sorry for himself.  lets just be glad that the whole debacle gave us Jimmy Fallon.
