According to Deadline.com, Jones will be hosting and executive producing the revival of the classic game show. Thus far, networks such as ABC, NBC, Fox and Netflix are showing interest in the project. Also, Jones will be a contestant on ABC’s revival of The $100,000 Pyramid, facing off against fellow comedienne Rosie O’Donnell. Heck, Jones even has a comedy special with Netflix already in the works.

You go girl.

Jones will soon be finding her way to the big screen also, with news spreading that she will have a role in the upcoming Coming to America sequel and a movie in which she will star alongside Kristen Bell.

So don’t feel too bad for Jones losing her late night job.

From the sound of it, she’s going to be just fine.
