BURBANK, Calif. � October 15, 2007 - NBC Digital Entertainment will begin streaming full episodes of NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on NBC.com. The announcement was made today by Vivi Zigler, Executive Vice President, NBC Digital Entertainment.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" will be the second late-night program from NBC to begin streaming on NBC.com -- crediting NBC as the first broadcast network to stream two late-night programs on a broadcast network website.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" has been the most watched late-night talk show for more than 12 seasons, with viewers tuning in each night to catch Jay's monologue, his signature comedy pieces such as "Headlines" and "Jaywalking," and his A-list guests from the worlds of politics and pop culture.

"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Media Studios. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.

"Late Night with Conan O'Brien" was the first broadcast network late-night entertainment program to stream on a broadcast network website. The streams of the nightly episodes become available the next day.
