'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' Gets the Green Light
NBC announced that comedian Jimmy Fallon will replace Conan O’Brien as host of the Late Show next year.
“It’s going to be a grind, it’s going to be hard, but I’m going to go at it full force,” Fallon told reporters on a conference call. “The fact that I’m stepping into David Letterman and Conan O’Brien‘s shoes is very exciting.”
When asked how much his new job would pay, Fallon joked, “I keep asking Lorne and he’s telling me not to worry about. They’re paying me enough. I just want to live comfortably in Dubai.”
Fallon, 33, was a regular on Saturday Night Live for six seasons and was co-host of its “Weekend Update” segment.
The premiere date for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has not been announced yet.
