It’s time to revive the #ZuckerCNNShows machine. Jeff Zucker’s attempts to inject “an attitude and a take” into CNN by way of “more shows and less newscasts” has led him to knock on the door of none other than Jay Leno. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the outgoing Tonight Show host is being courted by Zucker, the same man who once gave his late-night program, briefly, to Conan O’Brien. How funny would a White Santa symposium led by Jay Leno be? Don’t answer that.
