According to the New York Post, Conan O’Brien is leaving ‘The Tonight Show’ after next week. If Jan. 22 is O’Brien’s final live broadcast, the show will have ended two weeks before NBC’s scheduled preemption for its 2010 Winter Olympics coverage. NBC has declined to comment.
A source told People magazine: “Conan does not currently plan on doing any more new shows after next week.”
TMZ is reporting that the show will be handed back over to Jay Leno: “Jay Leno has made a new deal with NBC, which gives him “The Tonight Show” from 11:35 – 12:35.”
