Jay-Leno-September-15

As expected, Jay Leno's final episode of The Tonight Show will air prior to the 2014 Winter Olympics. Deadline reports that Leno's final episode will air Thursday, February 6, 2013, the day before the Olympics start. Jimmy Fallon will take over the show after the Olympics conclude. Since the show is moving to New York, many longtime members of the crew will lose their jobs, Fortunately, the terms of Leno's exit deal stipulates that they will all paid through September when his contract with NBC ends.

    Fallon has great bits, but he needs to work on his monologue and interviewing skills. Just practice in front of a mirror or something. He may be over-extending himself in the bits. Otherwise, Letterman will eat him alive, even with the 2-month-old repeats he sometimes airs.

    I will believe that Leno is retired when he’s dead.

    Not before. Never before.

    Until that moment, he could come back to crush Fallon’s hosting gig at any time.

    On his final Tonight Show, they will show Jay’s greatest comedy bits.

    Not sure what they’ll do with the other 56 minutes.
