After 22 years as the host, Jay Leno is doing the same thing that Johnny Carson did for him, he's handing over 'The Tonight Show' to the next guy in line. In this case, NBC is going with Jimmy Fallon. Leno's last show was last night.
This is actually the second time Leno has announced his stepping down from the job. But, the first was more of a controversy than anything completely official. This time, it's for real and final. Jay Leno won't be on late night tv every night any longer. Think Fallon will be able to aptly replace him? I mean, I like Jimmy Fallon decently I guess. But, I'm not sold. I've been a fan of Leno for years, and it kind of sucks that he has to leave before he is ready. Leno made it clear he was being fired and this 'choice' wasn't voluntary.
I think after 22 years of quality hostmanship, a man should be able to call a quits when he feels he is ready. But, I'm not dense. He himself even admitted the fact that he's 62 years of age, and there is a considerable "generation gap" that Jimmy Fallon will definitely be able to fill. Fallon is decades younger.
