Jay Leno is going out with a bang (again).
The Tonight Show host, who will pass the baton to Jimmy Fallon next month, has a star-studded lineup of guests for his final week including...
NBC headed into midseason last year with plenty of momentum — only to see its fortunes collapse as The Voice took a winter nap and new hit Revolution went on hiatus.
Lesson learned. Not taking this fall's solid ratings for granted, NBC will bring its new smash, The Blacklist, back in January before taking a break for the Olympics. And the Winter Games will provide a ratings boost as well as a broad platform on which to market the network's upcoming series.

Our top moments of the week:
Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Fallon
New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen teamed up with Jimmy Fallon to take on his home state's scandalous governor Chris Christie — in song, of course.
Seth Meyers, Time Magazine
When Seth Meyers takes over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 24, don't expect the same song and dance — literally.
Fallon's most popular Late Night sketches include the recurring "History of Rap," "History of Dance" and unconventional music covers segments, but Meyers wants to do something new. "I like that everyone before me has established this as a place to try things out," he told Time (as reported by Us Weekly). "It's 12:35 at night. You can do crazy stuff."
Was it really so hard finding good help in those days? When Robert, aka Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), is informed that his wife is once again bereft of a lady's maid, he overdramatically moans, "Are we living under a curse?"
There's no question a pall thicker than London fog hangs heavy over Downton Abbey in its fourth year as Masterpiece Classic's signature series (Sunday, 9/8c, on PBS; check tvguide.com listings). Not only has Lady Cora's bedchamber not been the same since her scheming servant O'Brien left — she slinks away in the opening scene, and boy, is she missed — but the family and staff are in sustained mourning over the untimely (and contrived) death, six months earlier, of heir Matthew Crawley, Lady Mary's husband, in last year's unhappy finale.
Martin Freeman, Sophie McShera
It's that time of year again, when a TV viewer's fancy turns to thoughts of love for Downton Abbey.
Now that the British period drama is back on Sundays on PBS, be prepared for Bates-and-Anna watercooler chatter, your pals quoting the Dowager Countess and of course parodies, which are this millennium's sincerest form of flattery.
13 reasons to be Downton's Dowager Countess when you grow up
We've seen tributes from P. Diddy, Sesame Street, The Simpsons and Jimmy Fallon, to name a few. With Downton in its fourth season, we're expecting a slew of...
Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon

In the promos for the last new episode of the year, Fallon is joined byKenan Thompson as the two hype up Timberlake. In one promo Thompson holds a scarf over his face pretending he's the "Sexy Back" singer while in another the two mumble their way through a duet of "Mirrors."
Michelle Dockery and Jimmy Fallon
