I really can’t figure this one out — Jay Leno beats David Letterman …yet CBS hangs onto Letterman and NBC runs out Leno’s contract. Would you not want to hang onto the winner? I assume CBS hangs onto Letterman because he continues to bring in piles of money for them — but would you not think that the number 1 guy, Leno, would bring in even more for NBC? Getting rid of Leno can’t be a business decision — is it a grudge? someone doesn’t like him? I hope Fox Broadcast picks him up since he has a giant audience (he wins!)
Below is from FTVLive.com:
“While NBC can’t push Jay Leno out the door quick enough, CBS is hanging onto the guy that Leno beats on a regular basis.
CBS has extended David Letterman’s contract until 2015…”
