NEW YORK - "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is one of the few remaining successful programs that NBC has on its network. So why would its executives think about getting rid of him? NBC has confirmed that it is building a new studio for Jimmy Fallon at its New York headquarters but refuses to comment on reports that Fallon is due to replace Leno on a New York-based "Tonight" as early as next year. With Leno already taking potshots at network executives regularly in his monologue, the network risks repeating the nightmare of 2010, when Conan O'Brien failed at "Tonight" and NBC brought Leno back.

Well, NBC, replace in haste, repent at leisure.   You might have wanted to consider your options a little more carefully before you rushed ahead Friday and anointed Savannah Guthrie as Matt Lauer's new Today deskmate. Let's face it: The deposing of Ann Curry did not go well at all. Public sympathy for her was far greater than you had projected. Worse, many were casting Lauer, your morning monarch, as the heavy in all this, the egotistical divo who sabotaged his innocent coworker.

SHARON OSBOURNE told the New York Post that she is quitting as a judge on "America's Got Talent" at the end of this season because she is furious at NBC over firing her son, Jack, from the post-Olympics ridiculosity (yes, we made up a word) "Stars Earn Stripes," because he has multiple sclerosis. The producers of "Stars Earn Stripes" not only deny that Jack was fired because of his MS, but they also say he was never hired to appear on the show. In "Stars Earn Stripes," so-called "stars" will team with actual military personnel in military challenges to win money for armed-forces personnel.

She can fly!!!   NBC on Tuesday made the long-awaited announcement. We already knew Christopher Walken (who else?) was going to play Captain Hook. He's creepy, crotchety, and the man can sing and dance. But who'd play Peter in the network's Peter Pan Live! , to go on the air Dec. 4??? Here's who: Allison Williams , of Girls on HBO! This is notable in many notable ways. Allison is the daughter of NBC news anchor Brian Williams . Noted. She also can sing: She sometimes does on Girls . She beats out other stars reportedly considered, including (we hear)

*  "DECEPTION. " 10 p.m. Monday, NBC10. "REVENGE. " "Scandal. " And now "Deception. " I'm not sure who's naming TV shows these days - perhaps the same people who christen perfumes? - but if you're trying to distinguish NBC's new drama about Rich and Powerful People With Secrets from the ones that are already on ABC, the title "Deception" is probably not going to be much help. Which could be the point. Like the covers of paperbacks at the airport, a generic-sounding title may signal fans of a certain kind of prime-time soap that what's inside is meant for them.

* HEROES REBORN. 8 tonight, NBC10. * THE PLAYER. 10 tonight, NBC10. WESLEY SNIPES has stories about Philly, but good luck hearing them. "I got family in Philly," said the actor, at an NBC party at Spago in Beverly Hills last month. "We've got some Snipes in Philly. And the Roots boys are from Philly. "I've got some interesting stories I can't tell you, about my Philly experiences," said Snipes, laughing. Snipes, whose nearly 30-year film career was interrupted a few years ago by a stretch in prison for failing to file federal income-tax returns, is placing his bets on NBC's "The Player" to teach him things he doesn't already know about the entertainment business.

Some stories work in any language. It's not good news that stories about the horrific abuse of children figure among them. Game of Silence , a new drama about childhood friends reunited years after a prank gone wrong landed four of them in a nightmarish juvenile detention facility, arrives at 10 p.m. Tuesday on NBC looking like some other network dramas. There are secrets. There are lies. And there are conspiracies meant to be labyrinthine enough to stretch beyond a single season.

Boston-area viewers wishing to watch NBC News programs , The Voice , or other shows may be forced into a pay-TV package in a metro area in which Comcast is the dominant cable provider, the suit says.

Renee Chenault-Fattah, the longtime NBC10 news anchor, has parted ways with the station, six months after she was placed on leave following the federal indictment of her husband, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah. "Renee Chenault-Fattah no longer works at NBC10," the station said in an email Tuesday. "She remains a friend and valued colleague to all of us. We are truly grateful for her many years of service to the station and our viewers. " NBC10 would not say if Chenault-Fattah, who anchored the 4 and 6 p.m. broadcasts, had agreed to leave or was fired.

Comcast-owned NBC caught five NFL games on Thursday nights, splitting a 10-game package over the 2016 and 2017 seasons with CBS. The Thursday night games aired on CBS or NBC also will be simulcast on the NFL Network and a digital platform, which will dilute viewership on any individual media outlet. On those Thursday night games - which typically are among the lower-rated NFL matchups - the league will benefit from three revenue streams: cable, broadcast-TV and digital. Media reports said that NBC and CBS paid about $225 million each for the five games, or $450 million over two seasons.
