Jimmy Fallon will be taking over “The Tonight Show” in Spring 2014 when Jay Leno leaves the show after more than 20 years as host. NBC made the announcement Wednesday.
As part of the transition, “The Tonight Show” will return to its original home in 30 Rock in New York.
NBC says programming plans for the 12:30 a.m. time period are in development and will be announced soon.
