Update: All the late night shows had jokes
Leno was actually kinda funny
Fallon talked about it and had a quick joke
NBC officially announced on Wednesday what has been rumored for a while now...Jimmy Fallon will officially take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno sometime in 2014
"I'm really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow," Fallon said in the press release.
"Congratulations, Jimmy. I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy," Leno said. "If you need me, I'll be at the garage."
Leno still has #1 ratings but NBC wants him to go out on top like Johnny Carson did when Leno took over...they also want Jimmy to start to appeal to the coveted 18-34 demo which is more in Jimmy's wheelhouse than Jay's.
Jimmy and Jay did a pretty great song together earlier this week once the rumors came out
Jimmy will be going up against Letterman (of course) AND Jimmy Kimmel on ABC. Kimmel sent Fallon a 'congratulations' tweet...
congratulations to my dear, sweet @jimmyfallon - a formidable rival and an incredible lover— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 3, 2013
Kimmel also HATES Leno.
