Jay Leno jokes about being canceled by NBC

According to the TVMoJoe blog, Jay Leno will be joking on his show tonight about the situation that's got all of America abuzz (or at least all of its TV columnists and critics). Here's a sample of his monologue, released by NBC:

"Happy birthday to Katie Couric, it's her birthday today. She left NBC for another network. I have to give her call to see how that is working out."

"As you may have heard, there is a rumor floating around that we were canceled. I heard it coming in this morning on the radio. So far no one has said anything to me. But Kev, if we did get canceled it will give us time to do some traveling. I understand that FOX is beautiful this time of year."

"I don’t think there is any truth to the rumors. See, it’s always been my experience that NBC only cancels you when you're in first place. So we are fine. We are OK."

    No Leno you are far from OK. You are done. And I for one couldn't be happier.

    What Justin said - please, please, PLEASE let that be the case. I don't think moving him to 11.30 will make his show any more appealing. What it _will_ do IMO is make Conan bitter, hosting a mutilated version of Tonight Show. Fallon and that-dude-no-one-cares-about after him can't be happy about the bump either.

    tl:dr - Leno stays - everyone looses. Please fuck off.
