There are only a couple of weeks left of 2012. The holiday season is in full swing. Students are home from school. People at work are slowly checking out. Everyone’s blood is 40% egg nog. We’re coming up on the shortest day of the year. People are looking forward to a few days with friends and family, and come New Year’s Eve we will sip champagne while reflecting on where our lives have led us and where we hope they might go next. So, with all of that in mind, WHO WANTS TO TALK ABOUT WHAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE GOING ON WITH JAY LENO, HUH? From the New York Daily News:

There’s word that NBC brass are ruminating over Jay Leno’s future — which would involve finally giving their current late-late guy comic, Jimmy Fallon, the coveted job as the host of “The Tonight Show.” The latest rumblings about Leno come from various talent agents who admit they have quietly been contacted by NBC officials hoping to find a new late-late host who will eventually take over Fallon’s 12:35 a.m. time slot.

Dope conversation. The switchboards are lighting up. Everyone is like: “Christmas is canceled this year, there is too much going on!” Did you hear that Fitness magazine awarded Katie Holmes the coveted “Best Revenge Body” Award for 2012? It’s like you can’t let your guard down for a second. EVERYTHING IS REALLY HAPPENING! Personally, I think it is a bit hubristic to assume there will even BE late night talk shows in 2014. Unless what they’re talking about is a late night PSA about how to survive in WaterWorld delivered straight to your Samsung Galaxy. Hosted by Jimmy Fallon? Sure. The kids are going to love it. Eat it up, kids. What a way to go out, guys. Has this year been great or what? Let’s give it up on more time for 2012.

  1. Jay Leno only wears denim underwear. #LenoRumors

  2. Fitness magazine got it all wrong. Nolan Ross has the best Revenge body:

  3. Jay Leno: “Hey Kevin, Didja hear the news? Apparently, NBC is interested in Jimmy Fallon taking over the hosting duties for the “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno. I guess they’re tired of hearing the affiliates call the 11:35-12:35 time slot ‘Passed his Prime-Time.’”

    Kevin Eubanks: “Ha! Ha! You right, Jay. You right.”

    Jay Leno: “Wait a minute. That poorly scripted joke was about me! I’ve gained self-awareness. Terrible, terrible self-awareness! THE HORROR! THE BEAUTIFUL HORROR!!!”

    Kevin Eubanks: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Leno Burbank wgah’nagl fhtagn! *eyes start to bleed*”

  4. When I think about the NBC brass getting together to talk about Leno, I imagine one of them making a joke about Leno hiding in the supply closet, and then they all laugh, and then one of them goes to check. And then they all laugh again.

  5. NBC had their chance to get it right back with Conan. Moving Jimmy up is a thing they COULD do, sure. I wouldn’t be against it. But at this point my late night spirits have been thoroughly crushed and not coming back anytime soon. #ConanCantStop #JimmysCool #ItsAlwaysSomethingIsntIt

  6. Fuck Leno and Fallon. I want Late Night With Louie for Christmas.

    • I want Jack Dahl (It’s Doll) to mediate the 2016 presidential debates. “You. Show me ‘President.’ Go. 3-2-1. Now. Let’s go.”

  7. I wonder if it’s got to the point where nobody would want to host the Tonight show anymore because Leno ruined it for everybody twice!

    but 3rd times a charm!?!?
