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.

A word of advice, Jimmy. Don't unpack.

Praise Zombie Bejesus! Are we finally rid of Leno for real this time?

Prediction from March 2014: "NBC to reinstate Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show."

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

I haven't watched a single minute of late night talk shows in three years, not since I cancelled cable and stopped watching Conan. The whole Tonight Show snafu soured me on the concept! Leno is an ass and should have told NBC to shove it, but selfishly he wanted his show back. Now I just follow Conan on Facebook and watch the funny clips he posts on his website.

I gave up on The Tonight Show when they replaced Conan and I never liked Fallon.

Life goes on.

What was Leno upset about? He's made a frickin' bundle doing...well not having to do all that much, far as I can tell.

I'll be completely shocked if this goes off exactly as planned without one or more snafus (like or Leno not wanting to vacate the Tonight Show, Fallon getting replaced by Conan or something equally unthinkable right now).

Stupid. Jay Leno is one of the bright spots for NBC. Until they get a better lineup, why chance bringing Fallon out? Is Fallon forcing their hand (could he be headed somewhere else)? I don't think he's as well suited as Leno.

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

Jay Leno was in Homicide: Life on the Street, so he's automatically better than Jimmy Fallon. On the other hand, Jimmy Fallon has The Roots, so he's automatically better than Jay Leno. It's a paradox.

Re: NBC: Jimmy Fallon to replace Jay Leno in 2014

One, I loved a twitter response to this news I read that said, "Fallon to replace Leno in 14, hope Jimmy likes TBS."

Two, I have seen several people talking about there being more of a behind the scenes story evolving. That it is Lorne Michaels is the one going out for the kill on Leno. Lorne was a big supporter of Conan in the back offices of NBC, and was very unhappy about the whole tonight show incident and how Conan was treated. Now that executives at NBC/U have changed, Leno has lost a lot of his supporters, and Michaels is out for payback and has been punching for the dumping of Leno.
