NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

According the news media NBC wants to make Jay Leno retire in 2014 and appoint Jimmy Fallon as the new host of the Tonight show. Unlike the bungled Conan O'Brien transition in 2009, Fallon won't have to relocate 3,000 away to Burbank since a Fallon hosted Tonight Show will be in NYC at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, which is the same location as Fallon's current Late Night show.

I don't think Leno's too happy about NBC's decision either since he compared NBC's executives to "snakes" in a his Monday monologue.

IMO, I suspect NBC thinks they can save money by moving the Tonight snow to NYC and keep Jimmy Fallon on a lower salary.
