There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

The Tonight Show chair is still moist from 22 years of Jay Leno's sweet-ass ass sweat, but you might be surprised to learn how quickly other late night hosts embraced the changing of the guards!
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, for one, hopes they're rivals for decades to come!

TBS' Conan O'Brien, who is likely still bitter over only being allowed to host The Tonight Show for about seven-and-a-quarter cumulative hours, was nothing but class!

As for Craig Ferguson?
Well, he couldn't resist taking one last crack at the NBC's whole Leno/O'Brien debacle!
Referencing the network's issues with a pink-eyed Bob Costas in Sochi, he joked:
"I'm surprised NBC let him back. Usually when they replace a host, they stick with their decision."
Good luck, Jimmy F.! We can't wait to see what becomes of these new rivalries!
