Season Seventeen

Season Sixteen of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno premiered on September 17, 2007. The season was interrupted prematurely in November 2007 due to the WGA strike. Not only did the writers walk out, but Jay Leno refused to cross the picket line.

As a result, network executives briefly entertained the possibility of bringing the show back with guest hosts before the strike was resolved. However, this route was not pursued. Instead, "classic" episodes featuring the first appearances of celebrities like Tom Hanks and special on-location weeks were aired.

After two months of reruns and slipping ratings, NBC announced that The Tonight Show would be returning without writers on January 2nd.
