Jimmy Fallon Soon To Host The "Tonight Show"
Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Apr 3, 2013 - 3:42:41 PM

LOS ANGELES—Rumors were officially confirmed by NBC on Wednesday, April 3 announcing that Jay Leno would be leaving the "Tonight Show" and Jimmy Fallon would be taking over as host in spring of 2014.


In addition to the change in host, the show will move from Burbank, California to New York City and about 200 jobs associated with the show will be moved as well. The "Tonight Show" took place in Burbank since 1972 when Johnny Carson moved it there.

Leno hosted the show for 22 years and decided to step down despite a contract with NBC that extend through 2014. The 62-year-old congratulated Fallon in a statement saying, “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, 38, currently hosts the New York City based NBC show, "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon." Lorne Michaels, creator and producer of "Saturday Night Live," will take over as producer of the "Tonight Show." Fallon's replacement on "Late Night" has not been announced as of yet.

This is the second time NBC has brought on another host to replace Leno as Conan O'Brien took his place for a span of about seven months. In a 2004 contract, it was announced that O'Brien would leave the "Late Night" show to host the "Tonight Show."

NBC gave Leno a primetime show to prevent him for moving to another network, however, both Leno's and O'Brien's shows proved to have lower ratings than expected. Thus, O'Brien was offered to change his airtime to 12:05 a.m. to move Leno in to the 11:35 p.m. slot for a 30-minute show. O'Brien refused and reached a deal with NBC that allowed him to exit the show the next day.

O'Brien's brief role on the "Tonight Show" was not mentioned in the network's recent announcement as it stated Leno hosted the show since 1992.
