After yesterday's report that Jimmy Fallon would take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno early next year, both hosts took the stage on their respective shows last night and delivered their opening monologues. One joked about the news; the other did not. It's probably not that hard to figure out who's who.

Years after 'The Tonight Show' debacle between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien has fallen off our radars, recent rumblings have all-but-confirmed that 'Late Night' host and 'SNL' alum Jimmy Fallon will take the 'Tonight Show' mantle from Leno in 2014. Now, recent reports have surfaced that Fallon will not only replace Jay Leno next year, but that 'The Tonight Show' will return to its original home in New York City as well! Find out if the rumors are true inside!
Even though it took place several years ago, we all remember the big late-night showdowns that saw Jay Leno stepping down from the throne of 'The Tonight Show,' only to develop his own series immediately before Conan O'Brien's hosting turn, which ultimately saw the whole thing implode and returned Leno where he started. Now, new rumors suggest that Leno will finally step down in 2014 to be replaced by his 'Late Night' successor Jimmy Fallon, but is there any truth to the new late-night war on the horizon?
Sigh, was there ever a time in our lives where the various hosts of late night TV weren't in one feud or another? If there was, it probably wasn't while 'The Tonight Show's Jay Leno was around. Following recent comments from David Letterman describing late night rival Leno as "insecure," Jimmy Kimmel has launched an attack of his own on Leno in a new interview, describing the controversial host as having "sold out." Hear more about the bitter rivalry inside!
For as much as we've enjoyed Conan O'Brien's role as the host of his own TBS show 'Conan,' Jimmy Fallon's increasingly strong work on 'Late Night,' and even Jay Leno's seemingly peaceful return to 'The Tonight Show,' a new storm on the late-night front might be brewing. Some sources are saying that NBC executives have quietly begun searching for Fallon's replacement, in which case Fallon would take over for Leno as host of 'The Tonight Show' in the next few years. Is there any truth to the rumor?
This is a win-win situation. Emma Stone’s so impossibly charming that we’d happily post every talk-show appearance she’s ever made. How are you not won over by this personable beauty? But as an added bonus, she brings a new clip from ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ See what I said? Win win.
Last night, Conan O'Brien visited 'The Late Show With David Letterman' - his first appearance on that show in over 13 years and his first late-night appearance since being fired as host of 'The Tonight Show.' Naturally with their combined dislike of Jay Leno, you could see where the interview would be going...
Is Jimmy Kimmel the new king of late night? Judging by last Thursday's ratings coup, Kimmel may soon be worthy of the crown.
Mel Gibson appeared on the Tonight Show to talk about his new film 'Get the Gringo' with Jay Leno. What followed was a mixture of your standard movie star promotional chatter and something deeply, horribly uncomfortable.
