Report: Leno’s Final Show Will Be Feb. 6

    This Nov. 5, 2012 photo released by NBC shows Jay Leno, host of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," on the set in Burbank, Calif. As Jay Leno lobs potshots at ratings-challenged NBC in his "Tonight Show" monologues, speculation is swirling the network is taking steps to replace the host with Jimmy Fallon next year and move the show from Burbank to New York.  NBC confirmed Wednesday, March 20, it's creating a new studio for Fallon in New York, where he hosts "Late Night." But the network did not comment on a report that the digs at its Rockefeller Plaza headquarters may become home to a transplanted, Fallon-hosted "Tonight Show."  (AP Photo/NBC, Paul Drinkwater)

    Mark your calendars: Jay Leno’s final Tonight Show will air on February 6, Deadline reported on Monday. Per the terms on his deal with NBC, his staff will be paid through September. The date isn’t a total surprise—Leno had been expected to wrap up before the Winter Olympics start on NBC—which will begin on February 7. Jimmy Fallon is expected to take over at the Tonight Show on February 24, followed by the new Late Night With Seth Meyers at 12:30 a.m. NBC entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt said the network is in talks with Leno about “various ideas” that Leno could do at the network after his 22-year stint at the Tonight Show ends.
