Fallon Will Get 'Late Night' Start Online


Jimmy Fallon’s road to residency in Conan O’Brien’s Late Night seat will begin online, said producer Lorne Michaels. Tomorrow, NBC will likely announce the end dates for O’Brien to end his Late Night run (possibly in February), allowing him to head west and take over for Jay Leno, who is expected to leave The Tonight Show in June. To prep for Late Night, Michaels will have Fallon tape 5 to 10 minute videos which will air at the regular 12:30 spot, ” so people will begin to look for Jimmy at that time.” The video segments will begin showing online prior to the start of his official start as host, which will begin sometime in the spring.
