Earlier this week, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon engaged in a charming little skit – a duet of "Tonight" from West Side Story, with novelty lyrics that reflected the growing media speculation (bordering on certainty) that Leno would soon be forced to give his spot to Fallon.
Tonight, Tonight, why do they say we fight?
I like you, you like me, we're okay!
Tonight, Tonight, who cares who hosts Tonight?
People just watch online the next day
The unstated irony of this little song is that, at least in West Side Story, one of those singers ends up dead. Now we know which one.
