Jay Leno gets the top spot in today's Morning Brief
Thursday's edition of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" capped Leno's 22 years hosting the show as he bid farewell to his audience.
It ranked among the sadder days in TV history when we finally said goodbye to Tina Fey's '30 Rock' after seven wonderful years, but our despair may already have been lifted. The former 'SNL' writer and '30 Rock' lead will return to NBC along with '30 Rock' co-showrunner Robert Carlock and writer-producer Colleen McGuinness for a brand-new female-centric workplace comedy, but how involved will Fey actually be?
This past weekend during 'SNL's' heartwarming season finale, cast and crew bid adieu to both Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, while less in focus was the fate of fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis has kept mum on the prospect of his 'SNL' future, but has cast member Jay Pharoah accidentally spilled the beans?
Late last night we heard rumors that former '30 Rock' star Alec Baldwin had entered negotiations with NBC for a late-night talk show of his own, potentially filling the slot currently occupied by 'The Voice' host Carson Daly's own series 'Last Call.' Now, NBC has reportedly renewed 'Last Call' with Carson Daly for a 13th season, but does it put to bed any future with Alec Baldwin?
See? Everything gets better when the storm is over. In spite of all the many weather-related cancellations, earlier we learned that Louis C.K. would indeed go on to host 'SNL' this weekend with musical guest Fun., but what of future hosts? It seems the next two weeks are set as well, with returning host Anne Hathaway, and first-timer Jeremy Renner! So what musical guests will accompany them?
Tell us what you think about NBC's Olympic coverage.
