Poker After Dark

Due to some reshuffling at NBC, that network's late night poker show, Poker After Dark, could find itself airing even later than it does now or not airing at all.

Jay Leno's prime time show was officially cancelled by NBC on Sunday.  As a result, he will be moving back to the 11:35 pm hour.  The network hopes to keep Conan O'Brien, but will move his show back an hour.  They also wish to keep Jimmy Fallon on board.  But nothing has been reported in regard to Carson Daly's show or Poker After Dar.

Poker After Dark has enjoyed some degree of success on NBC's late night slate. In the U.S., the show had some early ratings success: during season one's second week, it attracted on average a larger audience among adults 18-34 than The Late Late Show did the same week, even though the latter is broadcast 90 minutes earlier

Poker After Dark airs six times a week, at 2:05 a.m. ET (1:05 CT) Tuesday through Saturday, and then at 1:00 a.m. ET (12:00 CT) on Sundays, though times vary according to the preferences of the affiliates.
