Jimmy Fallon To Replace Jay Leno On ‘The Tonight Show’?

Jimmy Fallon To Replace Jay Leno On 'The Tonight Show'?

Is Jimmy Fallon going to be replacing Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” for the 2013-14 season? If so, it wouldn’t be because he [Leno] really wants to step down. Of course, we all remember how Leno did Conan O’Brien when he tried to step down the first time back in 2010. A short while later after his show tanked in the ratings, he insisted that he take the reins back over from Conan.

Now, it appears that Jay might be replaced against his own will. Reportedly, Jimmy Fallon will be announced as the new host of the show in the summer. A source close to the situation said that the network wanted to bring Jimmy Fallon in to combat Jimmy Kimmel’s move to the 11:35PM time slot.

A source said, “The more time Jimmy Kimmel is in that slot, the more the young audience goes that way, the harder it is for [Fallon] to keep that audience.”

Another source revealed, “Kimmel has done extremely well. Jay wins overall, but on any given night, it’s neck-and-neck in 18-49. I understand where they might have fear and also feel that they own the solution [in Fallon].”

    I liked each one of them better prior to the last election for President. They were both so one-sided that my husband and I just quit watching them. I used to really like Leno but now he seems stale and old fashioned. Jimmy Kimmel is fresh and interesting but he is too late @ night for us to watch. Why can’t they keep politics out of their routines? We are 62 &64 and we used to try to watch Leno when we could. Now we just get more sleep.
