No new $25 million Tonight Show studio for Jimmy Fallon

The Tonight Show With Jimmy FallonIt would seem the planned brand new $25 million studio at 30 Rock for The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon will not be happening after all.

The Hollywood Reporter says “NBC spent seven months working on plans that called for the combining of Studios 6B and 8G and turning them into a megastudio for Fallon as well as a showy theater for NBCUniversal to screen movies. Including a balcony, the facility would have fit an audience of 400” but “recently was scrapped, says an insider, and now when Fallon becomes host of Tonight, he’ll have to settle for a mere $5 million renovation of Studio 6B, where he currently hosts Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”.

Works will begin this summer and for six months Late Night With Jimmy Fallon will move to Studio 6A until the new look Studio 6B is ready for The Tonight Show.
