Jay Leno Sounds Upset

http://www.deadline.com/hollywood/nbc-indicates-changes-coming-to-jay-leno-show-due-to-affiliate-issues/

On tonight's monologue, Jay Leno sounds upset, even going so far to say he has "trust" issues with NBC right now. Which indicates that Leno and his reps are fighting NBC's attempts to cancel The Jay Leno Show at 10 PM primetime Monday through Friday. That would violate his 5-year contract in which the network gave his show a 2-year iron-clad commitment. But NBC doesn't want to absorb the penalty — "it's just too big" — so their solution is to find a place for Jay in late night. But, wait — wouldn't Leno like NBC's idea to return him to the 11:35 PM time slot he called home from 1992-2009? Not so much if it's an abbreviated half-hour that's just a lead-in to Conan. That's right, TMZ is wrong: I'm telling you that Leno is not being offered The Tonight Show.
