The big late night rumor is now a fact: The Tonight Show is making its way back to New York. TV Newser reports that Jimmy Fallon is going to take over for Jay Leno next year, and NBC will be letting everyone know with special promotions during the 2014 Olympic games.
As part of that change, the Tonight Show is moving from California to here. A new studio in 30 Rock is currently being built for Fallon, in the same space that Tonight Show host Steve Allen once used.
Jimmy Kimmel, Fallon’s soon-to-be competitor in the 11:35 pm slot, saluted Fallon. “Congratulations to my dear, sweet
@jimmyfallon – a formidable rival and an incredible lover,” tweeted Kimmel. Hahaha! Two guys loving each other is so silly and weird!
