Jay Leno’s bad luck streak continues after news surfaced on Friday that his “Garage” reality show is on the chopping block at CNBC after eight years following reports of him crashing his motorcycle and breaking multiple bones.

A CNBC source shared that the 72-year-old’s reality show “Jay Leno’s Garage” has been canceled, bringing to an end the TV host’s 30-year run of having a program on one of NBCUniversal’s TV channels, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The reality show first debuted in 2014 and was initially a series only seen on the NBC website. Later, the series was picked up by CNBC and it has been part of the network’s primetime lineup since 2015.

The reported cancellation of “Jay Leno’s Garage” comes amid a change of the primetime schedule at the network with reruns of reality shows “Shark Tank” and “Undercover Boss,” along with original business documentaries, being its focus.

Leno’s history with NBC spans several decades. He previously became the host of “The Tonight Show” in 1992 following legendary host Johnny Carson, who walked away from the show after 30 years.

In 2009, he started a primetime program called “The Jay Leno Show,” which he helmed until once again taking over the 11:30 p.m. spot on “The Tonight Show.” In 2014, he finally walked away from the job and handed it over to Jimmy Fallon.

Leno then became the host of his “Garage” reality show, where he interviewed celebrities like Elon Musk, rapper Post Malone, President Joe Biden, and more as he showed off his enormous car collection.

In November 2022, the comedian made headlines after he suffered third-degree burns in an accident in his garage, as previously reported. On Friday, Leno cracked a joke about crashing his bike earlier this month.

“I was riding my motorcycle up in Lake Tahoe and I came around the corner and bam, I crashed into Jeremy Renner’s snowplow,” Leno tweeted.
