It's Official: Jimmy Fallon to Replace Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show"

Posted: April 3rd, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
ItSubmit Comment
NBC has now confirmed that Jimmy Fallon will replace Jay Leno as the host of "The Tonight Show" in Spring of 2014. The move is a bit bizarre, considering that Leno dominates in his time slot with over 3.5 million viewers. He also remains consistently ahead of his competitors David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmell.

"We are purposefully making this change when Jay is #1, just as Jay replaced Johnny Carson when he was #1," said NBC. "Jimmy Fallon is a unique talent and this is his time. I'm thrilled he will become the sixth host of 'The Tonight Show' at exactly the right moment, in conjunction with our coverage of next year's Winter Olympic Games from Sochi, Russia."

Leno said: "Congratulations Jimmy. I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy. If you need me, I'll be at the garage." Fallon added: "I'm really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow."

Leno has hosted "The Tonight Show" since taking over for Johnny Carson in 1992. At one point, NBC attempted to replace Leno with Conan O'Brien, but O'Brien couldn't deliver the ratings that Leno had. Many believe that Fallon will also fail, which will result in NBC once again bringing Leno back.

Wherever conan is he is proly laughing uncontrolably while his eye twitches to and fro. I hope fallon has conan on his first show, and leno. Must see tv right there. It could be a live televised boxing match. Everyone will know when its over.

Conan will be skipping around the ring and screaming like a girl while leno just shakes his head fake laughing, while looking around nervously seeking out people who think he is funny.

Why would anyone watch Jay knowing what a huge phony he is?
This herd is getting thinned too slow for my liking

Ever since Kimmel moved to 1135 he has been depending more on 'man on the street' bits and other non-monologue related bits than jokes.
