Looks like the rumors are true: Jay Leno said Wednesday that he will be leaving the "Tonight Show" after 22 years in the spring of 2014.
NBC announced that late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon will be the new "Tonight Show" host when Leno steps down.
Leno congratulated Fallon on getting the gig. "Congratulations Jimmy. I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy. If you need me, I'll be at the garage."
Fallon said, "I'm really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow."
NBC also announced that the "Tonight Show" will be moving back to its original home in New York City.
In 2009, Leno announced he was leaving late-night TV, passing the "Tonight Show" reins to Conan O'Brien. Leno went to prime time with "The Jay Leno Show," but after dismal ratings, returned to "Tonight" and O'Brien took a late-night job with TBS. TBS is part of Turner Broadcasting, along with HLN.
