TMZ is reporting, via unnamed sources, the predicted inevitable: "Jay Leno has made a new deal with NBC, which gives him 'The Tonight Show' from 11:35 - 12:35." And as Conan said earlier this week, he's not willing to move to a later spot. Shows taking Leno's 10 p.m. spot will be Law & Order, Parenthood, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Marriage Ref (a Jerry Seinfeld show) and Dateline NBC, Monday through Friday, respectively, according to The Wrap. Expect more coverage and details in future TV Junkie posts. UPDATE: Unnamed sources tell The Hollywood Reporter TMZ is wrong.
