“The Jay Leno Show” ends on Feb. 9; Conan repeats to continue until the Olympics

 NBC has firmed up its transition plans for Jay Leno.

Leno’s final original episode of his primetime “The Jay Leno Show” will air on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Peacock will fill the rest of the week with a “Law & Order: SVU” repeat on Wednesday, Feb. 10 at 10 p.m., and an hour repeat of “The Office” in the slot on Thursday, Feb. 11.

The Winter Olympics then start the following night, with the Opening Ceremony set for Friday, Feb. 11.

As previously announced, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” returns on Monday, March 1 — the night after the Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony.

Peacock also confirmed Monday that repeats of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” will continue to air in the 11:35 p.m. time period until the Winter Olympics begin.

Meanwhile, that must have been a helluva wrap party on the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” stage last Friday. O’Brien’s official web guru, Aaron Bleyaert, took a pic (below) of the leftover booze and beverages from the gathering. (Perhaps to be saved for a launch party down the road?)
