Jimmy Fallon to Replace Conan O'Brien

Conan O’Brien will be replaced by Jimmy Fallon, if NBC has their way.

“We know him from SNL and saw what he can do on-camera and off-camera, and I think he’d be terrific,” says NBC late-night chief Rick Ludwin. I think he’s be terrific, and he’s at the top of our short list.”

Conan has less than two years left in his contact, making way for Fallon in 2009.

    Quiet Observer Says:

    They aren’t replacing him. He’s moving to Jay Leno’s spot and they need someone to fill the late-late night slot. I don’t know how Jimmy Fallon will do, but I never really found him funny doing the news on SNL.

    Conan for the win Says:


    I know people are saying Conan will take over for Leno but there are talks that Leno might stay and they might buy out Conan.

    They better not take Conan off the air. He’s the only funny one. What the hell is wrong with these people?

    It sounds better when it’s Late Night With Conan O’Brien. And if they don’t take off Jay Leno then Conan should stay with Late Night.

    Do not Replace Conan! Unless Conan replaces Leno. I don’t mind Fallon, but I think he would get on my nerves very fast.

    Fallon’s to goofy.

    Jennifer H. in Calgary Says:

    What a ridiculous idea – they want to replace someone as talented and funny as Conan?? And with… Jimmy Fallon? Are we living in some kind of alternate universe where Jimmy Fallon is considered talented or funny?
