'Leno' goes to archives
EmptyCBS' and NBC's late-night shows will continue to air repeats this week as WGA and studio negotiators are returning to the bargaining table.
NBC is digging deep into the "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" vault with five vintage episodes featuring the first headliner appearances of five of today's biggest stars. "Leno" will rerun a 1992 episode with Tom Hanks, a 1993 segment with Julia Roberts, a 2000 appearance by Matt Damon, and 1995 episodes featuring Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp.
As they are running out of recent episodes to repeat with the strike going on, late-night show producers have been looking for ways to explore their archives.
