Jimmy Fallon Named the Next Host of the Tonight Show, Cheers!

I'm very excited that my friend Jimmy Fallon has been named the next host of the Tonight Show.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Closing Credits: Jimmy Fallon runs into the audience and finds me. ;-)

Jay Leno-Jimmy Fallon ‘Tonight Show’ Handoff Set for Post-Olympics:
NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke has calmed the waters in NBC latenight, brokering a deal for Jimmy Fallon to take the reins of “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno following NBC’s coverage of the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The specific timing of Fallon’s ascent was still unclear, but sources said he would take over on the heels of the Olympics coverage, which runs Feb. 7-23. A source said he’d be behind the “Tonight” desk by early March at the latest.

Jimmy was excited too:
