News Nuggets: Jimmy Fallon expected to replace Jay Leno on ‘Tonight Show’ by 2014

“The Tonight Show” will move back to New York City; Jimmy Fallon expected to replace host Jay Leno by fall 2014: “The changing of the guard on ‘Tonight’ is one of the biggest personnel decisions in television, and has always been fraught with intrigue and backroom maneuvering. Three years ago, an effort to replace Mr. Leno with Conan O’Brien ended in recriminations and an ultimate reversal; Mr. Leno was reinstated as host after only seven months. NBC endured weeks of negative press coverage. In the early 1990s, Mr. Leno and David Letterman engaged in a heated and often acrimonious competition to replace [Johnny] Carson.” New York Times
