Jimmy Fallon for Late Night Laughs

Rumors had been flying since last July that Jimmy Fallon was a front runner to take over Conan O’Brien‘s ‘Late Night,’ and now according to reports, the deal is sealed.

NBC will reportedly make the formal announcement about Jimmy around May 11 or 12, when the network presents the fall 2008 schedule to advertisers here in New York, sources tell Fox News.

Last December, Jimmy, 33, married movie producer Nancy Juvonen in the Caribbean.

Conan O’Brien will be taking over for Jay Leno, who will leave the “Tonight” show in May 2009 as part of a forced retirement.

Worst choice ever. Why pick a dumbo guy who can’t talk instead of oh so many women who can?

Hi.

I’m from Portugal so I’m really not familiarized with Jimmy Fallon’s career and/or work, except now his “late night” show is transmitted in Portugal, so I guess I can give an imparcial opinion about it and… I really don’t think the show is even remotely funny, Conan O’Brien is missed around here.

Generally I do not post on blogs, but I would like to say that this post really forced me to do so! I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.
