Jay Leno Takes Over Tonight Show: TMZ

TMZ stakes it, and the world reverberates: Jay Leno is moving to 11:35 on weeknights on NBC. That makes Leno, by the ancient rules of television, the host of the Tonight Show, which has heretofore been Conan O'Brien's job. As O'Brien has refused to change his time slot, barring a coup of angry Cocoheads seizing the network this would appear to remove O'Brien from network television sooner rather than later, and for as long as NBC can manage it, which means we may miss Tom Hanks on Tuesday. On the plus side, NBC has shows lined up for Leno's current slot at 10 p.m.
