Fallon Set to Replace Leno

It's the newest edition of the late-night-host musical chairs! According to an insider, Jimmy Fallon has closed a deal to take over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, whose contract expires in September 2014 though it's unclear when the switch would occur. The two hosts have been mockingly addressing the issue with jokes and even an on-air duet, but NBC has not confirmed the switch. Seth Meyers, head writer for Saturday Night Live, is considered a favorite to replace Fallon.
