    BEVERLY HILLS -- NBC wants Jay Leno to remain with the network after he exits from "The Tonight Show" in February, but there were no specifics from the network brass at this morning's "executive" session.

    "The Tonight Show" ratings have surged in recent weeks, a phenomenon that NBCU Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt attributed to "fans rallying around him," much as they did the last time he left the show.

    "I think we predicted that when we announced the final year, we would see a ratings boost as we did in Johnny Carson's final year and Jay's previous final year."

    (Cue to laughter in audience...)

    "I think the fans are going to rally for him in the next six months... It may appear it was almost a last-minute discussion a few months ago, but we've been having this discussion since the time I arrived, over the timing of the transition. Late night has declined ever year [across all networks]. It's the same story -- a percentage of 4 to 7percent decline every year, and we knew we had a platform coming up in the Olympics this coming year that we weren't going to have again for another four years. And we wanted to make it where the time period was really strong to give Jimmy Fallon the best chance of succeeding -- that's the reason for deciding to go with the coming year....

    "We'd love to [have Jay Leno] stay on at NBC in some capacity. He's got a lot of things to sort through, but nothing would make us happier to have him, a la Bob Hope, still be appearing on the network.. We're still talking. But about specific things? Nothing official to report, but we're hoping we can do that."

    Yep and for once Howard was right in his (misplaced) anger at Jay for not walking.

    Jay should do his damnedest to get to FOX and shove his success right up the asses of those at NBC who shit on him twice now.

    CeeLo Green is coming on the Stern show.
    Will Howard call him gay to his face?

    Jealous Stern the day after his Super Bowl commercial got NO buzz.....going after (with the gay club) others that got Super Bowl buzz.

    Americas smudge Crusty the Clown Stern is on a top rated NBC show that is viewed by all as a (Stern failure!) disappointment.

    Wiggy projecting?

    Jay looks like he's having a good time. Wiggy looks likes he's fighting desperately to hide his homosexuality. :coffee:

    The war on Jay like the war on Mel Gibson has been a colossal failure for rear admiral Wiggy Westmoreland.

    Whatever Jay did to get the Tonight Show job wouldn't crack the top 1000 things stern has done in his career.
