Hey, did you know that Jay Leno is back on TV?

The former Tonight Show host, who can't resist the siren's call of television, will be back on CNBC next Wednesday with Jay Leno's Garage, an hour-long series in which he indulges in his passion: cars.

The series has already existed as a webseries for years, but will be making its prime-time debut. As part of its roll out, the show's producers had the host wear creepy makeup and cruise around L.A. as an UberBlack driver, picking up unsuspecting passengers.

Leno eventually reveals his real identity to all his riders. One woman says, "I'm gonna call my parents now and they're gonna think I'm high." One of the gals in a trio he's taking to a Travi$ Scott concert excitedly calls her mom after the reveal, to which Leno tells her mom, "One day you're on top, next day you're driving chicks around to concerts."

Jay Leno's Garage premieres October 7 at 10 p.m. on CNBC.
