CNBC will air The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien when it starts in June, but will not be showing Late Night With Jimmy Fallon or any of the other late-night talk shows.
In email correspondence from CNBC, they say “of all the late night talk shows, we will only be airing The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien in 2009”.
With regards to whether or not we will see Late Night With Conan O’Brien’s final show in February, CNBC tell us “there are no plans to show Conan’s final Late Night on CNBC”.
Late Night With Conan O’Brien stopped airing on CNBC recently, and the weekend shows are now double bills of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno from 8pm.
CNBC say the decision to make these schedule changes to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Late Night With Conan O’Brien is “to allow for other core business and news programming to be accommodated earlier in the day” but that they’ll “continue to review viewer interest in our entertainment programming strands and consider them if we make further programme line-up changes later in the year”.
