Not only is NBC planning a new host for The Tonight Show, but a new home, too – though neither will be particularly unfamiliar to viewers of late night.
Despite his present high ratings, when the show's long-running host Jay Leno's contract expires in the fall of 2014, he will be succeeded by current Late Night host Jimmy Fallon, 38, reports Thursday's The New York Times.
Furthermore, according to the paper, once the shift takes place, the program will move back to New York – the original home to the show, starting in 1954, with Steve Allen, and then, Jack Paar, as host, until 1972, when Johnny Carson (who took over in 1962) moved the show west, where it has remained ever since.

Justin Bieber might get teary-eyed if he tunes in to late night TV on Monday.
His ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, 20, cracked a joke on air about making the pop star cry.
"Last time you were here, you were with a Justin Bieber," David Letterman said to Gomez, who was a guest on Monday night's episode of the Late Show with David Letterman. "That's not going on now."
Said the starlet with a big smile, "No, I'm single. I'm so good."

If Steven Spielberg's Lincoln ever heads to Broadway as a musical, it will have no trouble finding its leading man.
In a comical bit of Oscars mischief, Hugh Jackman showed up to The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday dressed as the 16th president and proceeded to sing the opening line of the Gettysburg Address – to prove that he, and not Daniel Day-Lewis, deserves the Oscar for Best Actor.
"The truth is, I wanted to sway a few last-minute Oscar voters. I'll be honest. I mean, really, can Daniel Day-Lewis do this?" Jackman said before breaking into song.

And the late-night war of words continues!
Following the back and forth bashing between Jimmy Kimmel, 45, and Jay Leno, 62, in 2010, Kimmel is at it again, now telling Playboy in its March issue (on newsstands Friday), "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don’t believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel, who three years ago called Leno a "tattle-tale" for talking about him to Oprah Winfrey, goes on to say, "Strangely, I don't even like talking about him anymore. The only time I think about him is when I'm asked."

It was a late-night love fest in Brooklyn on Wednesday, as Jimmy Kimmel – broadcasting from New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy – realized a childhood dream of interviewing his hero, David Letterman, for the very first time.
"I'm more excited that he's here tonight than I'm able to explain," the ABC host, 44, said in introducing his CBS counterpart, whose career in late night stretches back to 1982.
Letterman, 65, who did two shows without an audience this week, returned the compliment, lauding Kimmel for being gracious despite their de facto rivalry.

David Letterman had better not set foot in Gotham City.
SPOILER ALERT: READ NO FURTHER if you plan to see The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment of director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy – or if you have friends or family who intend to see The Dark Knight Rises, or if you do not want so much as a hint about the end of The Dark Knight Rises!
Okay, now that nobody is left reading ...

Whether she knew it or not, Jennifer Lawrence has been preparing for her Hunger Games role since she was a little girl.
The actress, who stars in the weekend smash film adaptation of the dystopian teen trilogy about a televised battle to the death, told David Letterman on Late Show this week that her two older brothers roughhoused with her growing up.
"I've got scars all over my body," she said. "The best part – they would fight each other over who could fight me."

Michelle Obama made a surprising confession Monday night about her dog, Bo.
"He is my son," the First Lady told David Letterman. "I have two girls – and a boy."
Obama has always said she considers herself the Mom-in-Chief, and in true mom form, she had nothing but praise for her furry kid. "Bo is wonderful," she said. "He is the smartest dog on the planet."
