General Electric Co. owned NBC network had notified non-writing staff at Daly’s show that they would possibly be laid off by the end of the week unless the show returned on air. "He wanted to go back to support his staffers," an NBC spokeswoman told Reuters.
Staff members of the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O'Brien received the same ominous news.
NBC has mentioned that there are no plans for other shows to return to production, and it’s likely that we’ll be watching reruns of the same shows over and over for a while. Let’s hope O'Brien and the others will come back on board soon… or we’ll have to resort to watching night-time infomercials, which would really... suck.
