It turns out YouTube really has the power to transform people into TV stars (we're joking, of course, Leno is a legend). CNBC decided the over 1 million subscribers Jay Leno has on his account is good enough to put the show on the tube. Yes people, he’s back. It was last weak when the entire auto media was getting all emotional as rumors claimed Leno is to return to the tube and now the network officially confirmed the information. The show was expected to be broadcasted on CNBC, considering the YouTube series were already hosted on, as well. The new television show is titled the same as Leno’s YouTube series and will debut in 2015. According to the network, the primetime series will feature everything from classics to supercars, and restoration projects to road tests. “This show will be about anything that rolls, explodes and makes noise,” Leno said in a statement. Over 105 million views on YouTube
We hope to highlight the passion and the stories behind the men and women who made the automobile the greatest invention of the 20th century,” the avid car-collector stated. As expected, the show is based on Leno’s Emmy Award-winning Web series, which has more than 105 million lifetime views.

Having Leno back on the tube will obviously make a lot of petrol heads quite happy, but the only thing we’re wondering is whether the show we’ll differ from the YouTube series. After all, why would anybody watch the same stuff again on TV, when they could just go online whenever they wish to. But we’re pretty sure Leno won’t let us down.
