Jay Leno, Arsenio Hall
Well that didn't take long!
Less than three weeks after leaving The Tonight Show, Jay Leno returned to late-night to help make a special announcement.
Fall TV 2014 Scorecard: Which shows are returning? Which aren't?
On Wednesday's episode of The Arsenio Hall Show, Leno sneaked up from behind Hall and gave the first of two big surprises. The second, via an inconspicuous-looking letter, was Leno's reveal that The Arsenio Hall Show has been renewed for a second season.
CBS Television Distribution sent out a release shortly thereafter making the renewal official. "Since 9/9/13, I've been waking up without...

Can American Idol continue its winning revamp? The reality competition series has already introduced Harry Connick Jr. to the new judging panel, guitar-accompanied auditions, The Chamber, abbreviated Hollywood rounds and even a viewer-decided semifinalist vote. As Idol enters Rush Week -- airing Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (8/7c, Fox) -- more changes are on the way to revitalize the teenaged show.
Jay Leno went out (again) on a high note.
The host's final Tonight Show Thursday drew 14.6 million viewers and a 3.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the show's biggest audience since Jerry Seinfeld visited the night of the sitcom's ...

Money can't buy happiness, but according to Miley Cyrus it can keep Justin Bieber out of trouble.
"You've got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don't get in trouble, and party at your house. Buy a house, and add a club to it," Cyrus advised the singer, who was recently charged with a DUI and assault, on Thursday's episode of TheTonight Show.
As he prepares to step down once again, Jay Leno is finally speaking out about when he first lost The Tonight Show to Conan O'Brien in 2009.

NBC has learned its lesson.
Last season, after a strong fall powered by The Voice and Revolution, NBC not only kept the shows off the air until March 2013, but chose not to launch any midseason series in January, cuing up a huge collapse.
"Essentially the momentum from last fall fell away. This year things are different," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday at the network's Television Critics Association winter previews. "Of course, we've got the Olympics for 18 nights, but I also think we've also gotten smarter about how we've scheduled January and February. We didn't take The Blacklist off the air in January. ... Last Monday's episode ... saw a 60 percent jump in the demo."

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.
