NBC Puts JAY LENO's Name in Lights as Glowing Tribute
NBC has given departing TONIGHT SHOW host Jay Leno a glowing tribute by putting his name in lights on the tallest building in the city of Los Angeles. The display, which reads 'THX JAY!' will be lit up through tonight, marking Leno's final night as host of the late night talker after 22 years.
Jimmy Fallon will take over the reins and move the show back to New York City beginning Monday, February 17th.
About the show:
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" features a nightly monologue (the longest in late night), news-making guests, and ongoing comedy segments, including "Headlines," "Jaywalking" and "Battle of Jaywalking All-Stars." The result is a unique and humorous look at the daily happenings in the news and in pop culture.
The program is also a proven barometer of political clout. In 2009, the show made history by being the first late-night show to host a sitting president when Jay Leno welcomed President Barack Obama as a guest.
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" is from Big Dog Productions in association with Universal Television. Debbie Vickers is the executive producer.
