Fallon To Replace Leno?

The New York Daily News is reporting that NBC is considering replacing Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon when Leno’s contract is up in 2014.

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.

Leno’s current $15 million a year deal expires in 2014, and came about after he “volunteered” to take a 50% pay cut earlier this year, a move that helped NBC slash “The Tonight Show’s” $100 million budget by about 20%.
