‘Jay Leno Show’ to bow on Sept. 14

Show to get a jump on the fall season

Jay Leno will get a one-week jump on the fall season in September.

NBC, which had hinted that Leno would launch a week before the season start, made it official on Tuesday: “The Jay Leno Show” will bow on Monday, Sept. 14, at 10 p.m.

Peacock execs said they’ll take advantage of the season bow of “Sunday Night Football” the previous night to help promote the show. The week of Sept. 14 will also include the summer finale of “America’s Got Talent” as well as the season launch of “The Biggest Loser,” both of which the net believes will give Leno a boost.

NBC may also schedule the premiere of its Thursday-night comedies that week, although a final decision hasn’t been made.

Leno signed off as host of “The Tonight Show” on Friday.
