‘Tonight Show’ Headed Back To New York City With Jimmy Fallon

Well, the rumors are almost a done deal, Jimmy Fallon is said to be taking over the Tonight Show reigns after Jay Leno leaves his late night post and is bringing it back to its original home in New York, reports New York Times.

Though the deal isn’t complete just yet, the Times reports that NBC has settled on Fallon as the Tonight Show successor and is moving the show to NYC where it first began with Steve Allen as host in 1954.

The network is reportedly also considering returning to a 90-minute format for the show and have already begun quietly building a new set for Fallon in 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

NBC hasn’t announced when the switch would take place, but according to executives, it’s expected to take place in January 2014.
