Jay Leno: NBC only cancels No. 1 ranked shows
The day word got out that NBC may throw in the towel on Program To Margin campaign that involved yanking the No. 1 rated late night talk show host Jay Leno from "The Tonight Show" and slapping him into a cheap Monday-Friday 10 p.m. talk show, Leno addressed the news head on in his primetime show's opening monologue:
AS YOU MAY HAVE HEARD, THERE IS A RUMOR FLOATING AROUND THAT WE WERE CANCELED. I HEARD IT COMING IN THIS MORNING ON THE RADIO. SO FAR NO ONE HAS SAID ANYTHING TO ME. BUT KEV, IF WE DID GET CANCELED IT WILL GIVE US TIME TO DO SOME TRAVELING. I UNDERSTAND THAT FOX IS BEAUTIFUL THIS TIME OF YEAR.
I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY TRUTH TO THE RUMORS. SEE, IT'S ALWAYS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT NBC ONLY CANCELS YOU WHEN YOU'RE IN FIRST PLACE. SO WE ARE FINE. WE ARE OK.
