NBC confirmed that Jimmy Fallon of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, will be replacing Jay Leno as the host of the Tonight Show. Fallon will be taking over when Leno's reign of terror ends in Spring 2014. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2013/04/...on-taking-over-the-tonight-show-from-jay-leno So no more Big Chinned cheezy jokes. Instead we get an actual host. Sounds like a good payoff to me. Update: Confirmed: Leno will take over again by spring 2015.
