jay leno 320 Jay Leno leaves primetime a little earlyThe end of “The Jay Leno Show” will come a little sooner than originally planned.

NBC has issued some updates to its schedule that push Leno out of primetime two days earlier than the network had earlier stated. Rather than having his last prime-time show on Thursday, Feb. 11, Leno will now exit the 10 o’clock hour on Tuesday, Feb. 9.

A repeat of “Law & Order: SVU” will fill the hour on Feb. 10, and a pair of “Office” reruns will air at 10 on Feb. 11. “SVU” will move to 10 p.m. Wednesdays for good following the Winter Olympics, while the Thursday spot will be taken over by the unscripted show “The Marriage Ref.”

The early end to Leno’s prime-time show will give him and his staff a little extra time to prepare to move to back to “The Tonight Show,” which he’ll resume hosting on March 1. Perhaps you’ve heard a little bit about that in the past couple weeks.
