NBC is happy to finally have the whole Jay and Jimmy saga behind them.
The Peacock was able to push Leno out the door without nearly the problems they have had in the past.
And it's a good thing they are able to get rid of Leno as quickly as they are.
In the ratings for the first quarter of the year, Leno was a solid number 1.
Wait! So they guy that the 5th place network is getting rid of, just had his best 1st quarter in 3 years?
For the first quarter of 2013, "Tonight" stretched its leads versus one year ago over CBS's "Late Show" in viewers 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.
"Tonight's" 17 percent advantage over "Late Show" is its biggest for a first quarter in three years.
Good thing NBC is getting rid of the guy. Otherwise they might move up in the ratings and God knows NBC doesn't want that to happen.
