When Jay Leno steps away from The Tonight Show next year, fans of Jimmy Fallon – and Conan O'Brien – will surely be happy, but it could be automotive enthusiasts who benefit the most. According to a blog posting at The Wall Street Journal, without his late-night talk show, Leno would be able to focus more of his efforts on automotive-related content including the Jay Leno's Garage webisodes.
