We thought he was gone, didn't we? But it seems that Jay Leno, one of the most iconic figures in late night television, might not actually be disappearing after stepping down from the Tonight Show
in February, as there are rumors that Jay is very close to signing a deal
with CNBC to have his own show, devoted entirely to his one passion - cars.
This proves Leno's loyalty to the NBCUniversal brand, as he has been a member of the family for over two decades, which included him hosting The Tonight Show
for over ten years, and even his poorly received prime time talk show after he stepped down the first time. CNBC is best known for their business and financial programming, but are clearly looking to broaden their appeal with more original, captivating programming.
CNBC hasn't officially picked up the show, but apparently they are very close to green-lighting the series. There has been no talks for number of episodes, or if it will be broadcast nightly or weekly.
