Still Not Funny, Just 90 Minutes Earlier

News Item: Jay Leno to host five-day-a-week show, at 10 p.m., on NBC.

I guess Leno's core audience is getting older and older, and won't want to stay up until 11:30 forever. But still- no more dramas at 10, ever? I don't get this decision, although it still makes more sense than giving Jimmy Fallon his own show.

Maybe this is the future of networks: less scripted shows and another hour of talk shows. Considering all the crap on NBC, this makes sense, though I won't be watching much.

Id be more likely to watch - Stewart and Colbert show it works at the 10 CST time slot, why not shoot for the 9 o'clock slot. I never understood putting so much money into a slot so late at night that you lose such a large audience share because people go to bed.
