Has NBC Gone Nuts? Part Two J Bernard Jones December 9, 2008 Days of Our Lives, Heroes, Late Night With Conan OBrien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno 21 Comments Daytime Confidential's Sean posted this news before I could do so, but I was so flabbergasted by this new bit of Bizarro-World business that I had to post a follow-up. Hot on the heels of the news of NBC Universal president Jeff Zucker's revelation that the network is considering reducing its broadcast schedule by hours per week or reducing days comes the eyebrow raising news via The New York Times and other outlets that Jay Leno is staying with the network after Conan O'Brien takes over The Tonight Show in 2009. As Sean pointed out, Leno's new show — which will look almost exactly like The Tonight Show — will air every week night at 10PM starting next fall. Seriously. In order to figure out how this might impact Days of Our Lives, a bit of an examination of how NBC's potential prime time schedule might be affected by this move could point us in a clearer direction of its intentions toward the soap. In all honesty, the following is speculation but it is based on what Zucker himself said about these issues just yesterday.
