Haven’t we been through this before?
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno will officially switch hands to Jimmy Fallon February 6, 2014, ending 22 years of Jay on as a late night host.
Well, 22 years minus ten months. But who’s counting?
The changeover will happen the night before the Sochi Winter Olympics start, also airing on NBC, which should give Jimmy a nice first week — unless, of course, the U.S. boycotts the Games, which President Obama has publicly said he doesn’t think we should do.
And what was his forum for such a statement?
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno!
We're thinking of it as Jay's contribution to Jimmy's getting off to a strong beginning and saving his having to follow three hours of The Biggest Loser reruns for two weeks.
Hope it works — for all our sakes!
