It was only because Jason was leaving the show. I even read that the new leader part of the show was written in at the last minute.
It makes sense. Fans weren't going to buy Rocky as the leader when Jason left. The hilarious thing is, the episode after Tommy was made the new leader, it was Jason that led the morph call still.
