Deadline :: NBC insiders tell me The Tonight Show went through ”downsizing” today and that 20 staffers lost their jobs. Others tell me the number is more like 25, and producers were forced to take pay cuts or lose their jobs. The Tonight Show has been and still is a cash cow for NBC. So what happened to merit the downsizing?
