NBC to Replace Ratings-Champ Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon

This always amuses me.

NBC is always after the "younger, hipper" demographic.

Let me let NBC in on a little secret: The younger, hipper demographic doesn't watch TV.

Even the not-so-young, not-so-hip demographic sort of avoids it.

I've seen bits of Jimmy Fallon here and there and I'll concede: He's an extremely affable guy and can be funny. I don't see any real problem, per se, with NBC thinking he could be their Tonight Show guy.

Except... Jay Leno is very competitive guy, and even though he's richer than Croesus and definitely could retire, and maybe wants to retire, I gotta think right now he is plotting a a move to compete with Fallon, just because NBC is being a dick, as usual.
