First it was Katie Couric, then Ryan Seacrest, and now... Jay Leno?

The "Who'll Replace Larry King" sweepstakes rolls on.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting CNN is toying with the idea of giving the Tonight Show host a late-night talkfest when his NBC contract expires next year. Leno would then slide into King's 9 pm/ET timeslot when the Suspendered One eventually retires.

To be clear, King has not announced his retirement. He recently re-upped with CNN through 2010.

In a major late-night shuffle, Leno is handing the Tonight reigns over to Conan O'Brien sometime in 2009, with comic Jimmy Fallon assuming the 12:30 am/ET post. NBC has indicated it wants to hold onto Leno, but no plan has been announced. Fox and ABC have also expressed interest in bringing Leno on board. - J.R. Whalen
