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.

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.

After a slow period last year, TV ad sales for this summer's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro are going "extraordinarily well" and could break records, a top NBC Sports official said on Thursday. Comcast Corp.-owned NBCUniversal expects at least $1 billion in revenue and ad sales, which are eclipsing the pace of the London games in 2012, NBC Sports sales chief Seth Winter said in a conference call. NBC needs to get to $1.2 billion to break even, because that's what it agreed to pay for the games when it won the TV rights in 2011.

With on-demand streamers Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu capturing large audiences for general-interest entertainment, Comcast-owned NBCUniversal has ripped a page from cable's playbook with the niche comedy channel Seeso.com. NBCUniversal says its model of a specialized online channel with Seeso is like cable networks that cater to sports or music fans. If Seeso works, NBCUniversal expects to launch other pay-per-month streamed genre channels. "The consumer is telling us that this is a no-brainer," Evan Shapiro, NBCUniversal's executive vice president of digital enterprise, said Monday of Seeso, which he said he considered supplementary entertainment to Netflix as a "comedy channel for comedy nerds.

Never say Eva Longoria doesn't earn her paycheck. Longoria, who made her bones on Desperate Housewives, but who has largely stayed behind the scenes of late, puts herself front and center in Telenovela , a parody of the Spanish-language soap operas that gave us a sneak peek in December and that has its official premiere at 8:30 p.m. Monday on NBC. Telenovela is a behind-the-scenes Soapdish -ian comedy that goes way broad. Longoria is Ana Sofia, star of Las Leyes de Pasión , who speaks no Spanish.

Camera operators and broadcast technicians who went on strike two days before Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia last month have reached an agreement with NBC10 and Telemundo62, ratifying a new four-year contract Friday. "We're glad the strike is over and we're all looking forward to working together as one team again," Ric Harris, president and general manager of NBC10 and Telemundo62, said in a statement Friday. The 50 members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Engineers Local 98, had worked without a contract for more than a year before the walkout.

The strike by 65 NBC10 camera operators and broadcast technicians is heating up. NBC10 general manager Ric Harris told employees in an email on Wednesday that Philadelphia's No. 2 local news station is looking to hire replacement workers and that the positions of strikers had been posted on job sites. Harris also emailed that the company's final offer included a "no-layoff guarantee" for the contract that extends to 2018. On Thursday, union spokesman Frank Keel - accompanied by strikers who are members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 98 - held a news conference in City Hall on the same day that Comcast officials were to meet with city officials over the company's cable-TV franchise renewal.
