Tonight Show Rumors Confirmed

jimmy fallonNBC has released a statement confirming the long-suspected rumor that Jay
will be vacating the Tonight Show desk. Jimmy Fallon has
been confirmed as his replacement.

According to the NY Times, the change will occur in February following the conclusion of the Winter Olympics in Russia. NBC plans to use the games to promote Leno’s farewell and Fallon’s debut. The show will also be relocating from Los Angeles to New York — where it first began. Jay told the newspaper, “The main difference between this and the other time is I’m part of the process. The last time the decision was made without me. I came into work one day and — you’re out. There really aren’t any complications like there were the last time. This time it feels right.”
