Leno made the below comments regarding today’s announcements at the end of tonight’s monologue. The full monologue follows:
NBC and Conan O’Brien made an announcement earlier today. As many of you know Conan is leaving the network. His final show airs tomorrow night. I have chosen to stay on the Titanic. I don’t believe the iceberg is that big, the biggest ship, this ship will never sink and Kev… When it does, Kev, as it’s sinking, you will play for us… You’ll be here for us so. Apparently, we’ll be back on The Tonight Show March 1st after the Olympics, so that’s pretty much where we are.
