Jay Leno on Life After The Tonight Show, Avoiding Letterman’s Finale and Heading to CNBC

Plus, what's wrong with late night now

Jay Leno had his pick of TV offers after he stepped down as host of The Tonight Show in February 2014. But instead of jumping right back on television, Leno stepped away from the spotlight to focus on stand-up. Twenty months later, Leno's returning to TV, not with a talk show but with Jay Leno's Garage, a weekly CNBC series focused on cars and motorcycles. Premiering Wednesday at 10 p.m., the show is an offshoot of the YouTube series of the same name, which Leno launched in 2006.
