Jimmy Fallon To Replace Conan O’Brien
As has been speculated for weeks, NBC officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will take over as host of “Late Night” next year when Conan O’Brien sashays over to “The Tonight Show.”
Per NBC entertainment head honcho, Ben Silverman:
“He is a handpicked talent, part of the NBC family already.”
No definitive date has been set for when Fallon will take over, but the show will continue to tape in NYC. Jimmy, naturally, is thrilled:
“It’s a comedian’s dream to get his job, to work with writers and try to be funny every night.”
He joked, though, that it’s a tough gig, and that his wife is already preparing for the worst.
“She left me a note this morning saying, ‘Nice knowing you.’ ”
No other particulars were addressed in regard to Fallon’s contract, but, let’s face it: he’ll be making more than you or me. Well, at least me.
