Jay Leno is moving to CNBC after retiring from the "Tonight Show" and beginning in 2015 will host what is tentatively titled "Jay Leno's Garage" which will feature his impressive car collection, from classic automobiles to supercars and everything in between.

The primetime series is based on his Emmy Award-winning Internet series that has more than one million subscribers on YouTube with more than 105 million lifetime views, according to CNBC.

"This show will be about anything that rolls, explodes, and makes noise," Leno said in a statement. "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."

"Jay Leno's Garage" will be produced for CNBC in association with Big Dog Productions with Leno as the executive producer, according to CNBC. Leno hosted a one-hour CNBC special in August called "Jay Leno's Garage: The Ultimate Car Week," marking Leno's first return to television since "The Tonight Show."

"Jay will add tremendous star power and exceptional content to CNBC's primetime at the perfect time," CNBC president Mark Hoffman said in a company statement. "CNBC at night has real momentum and Jay's personality, tremendous fan base and his passion for the subject will contribute mightily to our burgeoning primetime. We're really excited Jay will continue his storied career with the NBC family and with us at CNBC."

The Los Angeles Times reported that "Jay Leno's Garage" has also appeared on NBC.com since 2009. Leno hosted the "Tonight Show" on the network for nearly 22 years before stepping down in February and moving over for Jimmy Fallon, noted the Times.
