Jay Leno Leaves the Tonight Show, Fallon to Follow up
Jay Leno will be leaving the "Tonight" show after 22 years of top ratings. Jimmy Fallon, 39, will be taking his place, leaving his "Late Night" chair to Seth Meyers of "Saturday Night Live." Leno, 63, will appear for the last time on the "Tonight" show on Thursday night with Billy Crystal, who was his first guest in 1992. Music artist Garth Brooks will also be featured. The behind-the-desk changeover of the 60-year-old "Tonight" show will be marked not only by generational changes, but also by cultural changes, as the show will be moved from Los Angeles to New York.
