Although the rumor mill has been running ramped for weeks now that Fallon was replacing Leno. NBC made those rumors a fact today. I have more on this latest bit of nightly talk show buzz and I will share it with you in one moment. First though I want to tell you all about our Caption This photo contest. It is super easy all you have to do is take a look at the above pic of Jay and Jimmy and caption it by leaving your witty remarks int he below comments section. Then next Tuesday, yes I know I am a day late this week, when a hot new topic and picture are posted be sure to come back here to see if your name was announced as the big winner! It is super easy, loads of fun and lets be real who doesn’t have something to say about this situation and these two hilarious men.

The powers that be at NBC released the below statement today.

“Jay Leno is an entertainment icon, making millions of people laugh every weeknight for more than 20 years. His long reign as the highest-rated late-night host is a testament to his work ethic and dedication to his viewers and to NBC. We are purposefully making this change when Jay is no. 1, just as Jay replaced Johnny Carson when he was no. 1. Jimmy Fallon is a unique talent and this is his time,” he continued. “I’m thrilled he will become the sixth host of The Tonight Show at exactly the right moment, in conjunction with our coverage of next year’s Winter Olympic Games from Sochi, Russia.”

There seems to be no hard feelings about the changing of guard so to speak. Jay sent this message out to Jimmy once the news broke.

“Congratulations Jimmy. 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.

Jimmy also commented on his new gig: “”I’m really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow.”

When Fallon takes over in 2014 ‘The Tonight Show” will be headed back to The Big Apple where it originated.
