The rumors around NBC's late night lineup never end.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "well-placed" sources have confirmed that Jimmy Fallon has closed a deal as Jay Leno's successor on THE TONIGHT SHOW, which will take effect early next year.

The source also confirmed the New York Times' report that the network has begun implementing a plan to bring TONIGHT back to its original home, New York City from Burbank, CA. THE TONIGHT SHOW originally aired in 1954 with Steve Allen serving as host.

Since the back-and-forth on who may be hosting TONIGHT began earlier this year, just as many rumors and reports have arisen as to who will be taking Fallon's slot on LATE NIGHT. According to reporter, if NBC execs have it their way, it'll be SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's Seth Meyers.

"It will be Seth unless something goes awry [in the dealmaking,]" a source tells the publication.

For the original report, head on over to The Hollywood Reporter.

Though Leno remains competitve in the ratings, Jimmy Kimmel has been beating him in the all-important 18-49 demographic. "Kimmel has done extremely well," says a network source, adding, "Jay wins overall, but on any given night, it's neck-and-neck in 18-49. I understand where they might have fear and also feel that they own the solution [in Fallon.]"
