Listening to Cash Peters the other night on Five Live (you can listen again here), an interesting angle was discussed on NBC looking to retain Jay Leno. Once Conan O’Brien takes over the Tonight Show, if Jay Leno isn’t with NBC there’s nothing to stop him starting a show opposite Tonight on ABC or FOX.
Jimmy Fallon (mentioned in an article a few weeks ago) is again mentioned as a possible host. There’s some interesting news about whether Tonight may return to New York, and the mention of Saturday Night Live backs up what had already been discussed, considering Lorne Michaels involvement.
Jimmy Fallon has made various appearances on Late Night, the Tonight Show and had a part in The Secret Policeman’s Ball in 2006.
