Top 20 Celebrity Scandals of 2010
18 In January NBC
18. In January, NBC was hurting because "The Jay Leno Show" was getting poor ratings during primetime, so together with Jay, they concocted a plan to change his time slot. That meant pushing the Conan O'Brien-helmed "Tonight Show" back 30 minutes.
