They better not cancel what's left of my Law & Orders!

: Jay Leno is staying at NBC, will be in prime-time
: NEW YORK (AP) -- Jay Leno is staying at NBC, and he's moving to prime time. The network announced on the "Today" show Tuesday that Leno will host a show on weeknights at 10 p.m. Eastern, after he leaves the "Tonight" show. The network had announced earlier that Conan O'Brien would move to the "Tonight" show and succeed Leno.
: The deal not only prevents Leno from moving to another network and competing with O'Brien, it also has the potential to be a big cost savings for NBC.
: Dramas at 10 p.m. Eastern used to be a mainstay of network schedules, but they have been fading - particularly on NBC. One reason is digital video recorders; more people are watching shows they taped earlier than the live 10 p.m. shows.
: The deal was first reported Tuesday in The New York Times.
: NBC is owned by General Electric Co.
