Leno currently works on late night television. He became host of The Tonight Show in 1992, when Johnny Carson retired. In 2007, during the writer's strike, Leno sided with the writers, although he returned to his show after two months (without the writers besides himself) so that his staff would not be out of work. Despite leading the late-night ratings, he was forced out as host of the Tonight Show in 2009 to make way for Conan O'Brien. On March 1, 2010, he will become The Tonight Show host once again, because of poor ratings with both himself and Conan O'Brien.
He now stars in his own prime-time comedy show, The Jay Leno Show, which debuted September 14, 2009.
