Speaking candidly about the failed Jay Leno Show in primetime, Ross told us exclusively, “To be honest, the vibe on the ten o’clock show was nervous because it wasn’t a secret.. it was weird.. it was awkward. The 11:30 (p.m.) show.. it’s the same crew that’s been there with Jay at least since I’ve been there for eight years. They’re very happy to be back home. It was unfortunate how it went down, but everyone’s really happy to be there.”
