Less than a year after Jay Leno retired from The Tonight Show, the comedian is returning to primetime TV, this time on CNBC. The series will likely be based on Leno’s Emmy Award-winning web show “Jay Leno’s Garage” and is set to premiere in 2015.

On the web series, Leno geeks out over everything automotive, from the best investments to read test. “This show will be about anything that rolls, explodes and makes noise,” Leno said in a statement. Maybe it’s all the explosions that draw 1 million subscribers to the “Jay Leno’s Garage” YouTube channel.
