Jay Leno confronted rumors of his show getting canceled or moved back to the 11:30 spot with, of course, meta-network jokes tonight. Last we heard was that NBC is committed to keeping the late-night host, but that might mean pushing Conan O'Brien, who just moved to Los Angeles to take Leno's spot, out of the way--translation: move to a later spot or completely off the station. TMZ alleges that NBC has given O'Brien a choice in the matter.
