Adam Sandler tells Jay Leno to go to Fox

Posted on

NBC’s coming late-night shakeup affects three-fourths of the the network’s post-11:30 p.m. programming. (Enjoy stability while it lasts, Last Call with Carson Daly.) Saturday Night Live has to find a new Weekend Update anchor… because Seth Meyers is moving to host Late Night… because Jimmy Fallon is moving to host The Tonight Show… because Jay Leno is getting forced out, just three years after NBC reinstated him as Tonight‘s host. Phew!

So while everyone else at the network is movin’ on up, what should Jay’s next move be?

His pal Adam Sandler — who stopped by last night to talk Grown Ups 2 The Streets — has a few ideas. Namely: “Don’t you think he should just take it easy, enjoy, breathe… maybe go to Fox, do a show at 11:00?” he asked Tonight‘s audience, to cheers and applause. Leno laughed off the suggestion genially, as is his wont — but you’ve got to wonder if he might consider it seriously come 2014.
