Late-Night Hosts Weigh In on ‘Tonight’ Show Switcheroo
The unsurprising confirmation that Jimmy Fallon will take over the “Tonight Show” from current host Jay Leno next February gave all the late-night hosts something to talk about on their Wednesday shows.
Fallon played it cool, but definitely felt like crowing a little. Leno poked fun at David Letterman and NBC. Letterman, in turn, poked fun at Leno and NBC. Jimmy Kimmel mocked himself, while Conan O'Brien offered congratulations… sort of.
