NBC gumbo: Olympics/Young/Conan; Marriage Ref; Leno to Tonight, prime-time takes flight

The Olympics are over, but not without an oddity and an odd intrusion Sunday night. Plus, now comes the new NBC, with Jay Leno reclaiming The Tonight Show while leaving five big holes to fill in the Peacock's prime-time schedule. Meanwhile, stations such as Fort Worth-based NBC5 are more than eager to re-roll the dice with late night newscasts that can't help but be better served without Leno as an appetizer.
