-- -- any -- men with with that without appear in this business.
He is what -- Frazier now playing a vital role in in revitalizing keeping Fox News on top.
Television producer extraordinaire has seen all this up close and personal.
And if you talk about the next generation of late night stars he's seen it all understands the right way to make the transition and the wrong way.
Woody welcome to the microphone -- that's about senator tremor had my friend my wife forgive me you don't she really likes you and yeah I think -- they are done there so when he first off.
I mean we have a situation you which I think is rare.
In the morning's The Today Show was dropped -- -- problems there number two.
At late night they're number one.
Leno's been virtually number one of the 21 years do you think his total disrespect.
To talk about -- taking his place in 2014.
Why don't they are so we'll disrespect I think.
They have to understand it's the way it's being handled.
I understand that Fallon is contacted.
And told him that he has nothing to do with what's really going on and he's very happy where is and he respects.
So I think that this way it's being handled by the network for for example of that remember -- the network.
That goofed up The Today Show situation room in how they how they handled the her leaving.
And so there's just -- it's the people at the top I think.
That are mishandling.
Everything I don't think it's.
So woody at the top I remember the did a movie -- late shift right -- They had Johnny Carson stepping aside Letterman wanted to Atlanta got it and all the -- it to -- behind the scenes.
Anything but smooth.
And then they moved Letterman Leno out drop on the 1030 move -- and that's obviously switch you can.
Right put it in perspective I thought these -- the brightest minds around when you get to that level in network television.
-- you know me in on.
The -- yeah you're right after a US got OK okay I am now a -- it's it's.
I think -- sick and they listen to research today they go more by research so they're obviously saying.
Even though Leno has the most audience his demos is eighteen to 34 demos.
And whereas Jimmy has very high -- house.
And meaning better demos in the eighteen to -- -- So that then that's where they look at it and that they don't understand.
That they're human beings and they don't treat him that way that it's it's a tough business.
If you don't mind me saying so.
What are you great qualities is the way you treat him.
The way you talk to -- do you believe it's the executive producer's job to almost lock in at the key.
Four in leno's his case balance one case -- in the last case sure absolutely is that not happening.
Then they're gonna have a hard time to slimy he's gonna go -- blue jays are gonna go easy.
Why woody and the people around him -- gonna support him I would.
You know and I like Jimmy Fallon to -- -- support -- if I was doing his show.
Jimmy is without a doubt.
They're coming late night star there's no doubt in my mind you know he started terribly -- along the line.
He figured out what to do he got -- is late night jitters -- from an audience.
And he has that touch that Carson did have now I don't know if he's from -- knowledge just like Carson.
But he has that approach ability.
Jay does -- greatest jokes.
But -- is not a good interviewer.
And and you know he just as I mean -- and Jalen as the hardest working guy in show business.
People don't know that when he leaves the show they take the short 5 o'clock they leave the show they go eat and then he says through this writers and -- 1011121.
O'clock until they have.
The first 1520 minutes of that show put together for the next -- that's where he spends all of his time.

Here is Jay Leno after this news started to emerge this week cut seventy.

About the -- all the snakes out of Ireland then they came -- United States and became NBC executives at the fact.
And that's gonna continue.
Here it goes after hearing goes after NBC on their ratings cut sixty.

Could now be brought back from the dead so.
There's hope for NBC could turn around.
Behind the scenes and know comedies coming behind the scenes -- goes on.

To lay off.
The without a doubt his did they may -- they were and they may not I don't -- go to.
I would if I was you know you know Roger -- would.
But -- -- they've gone after and they said lay off and each time he does that.
They're digging their heels in in how to screw him.
When he leaves.
There's no doubt.
