The comedian continued, "I don't think there's any truth to the rumor. See it's all been my experience that NBC only cancels you when you are in first place. So we're fine."
On Thursday, NBC released a statement in response to reports that Leno's show would be pushed back to 11:30 PM and "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" would start at midnight.
The network said, "We have the best comedy team in the business. We remain committed to keeping Conan O'Brien on NBC. He is a valued part of our late-night line-up, as he has been for more than 16 years and is one of the most respected entertainers on television."
