(Newser) – Jerry Seinfeld will be the lone guest on Jay Leno’s maiden primetime outing, the LA Times reports. That’s fitting, considering Leno has said he consulted Seinfeld when contemplating NBC’s offer for the 10pm show.

Leno has said he’d like to have just one or occasionally two guests per show, to go along with musical acts—the first episode features Kayne West, Jay Z, and Rihanna—and regular correspondents like DL Hughley and Brian Williams.
