Analyst says Leno may be out...because of Jimmy Kimmel

Posted: Updated:

 Well it's official, Jay Leno will be out as the host of "The Tonight Show" as of next year.

 NBC says Leno will step aside for Jimmy Fallon in the spring of 2014.

 Which means it will be Jimmy Fallon versus our own Jimmy Kimmel.

 And Kim Masters of "The Hollywood Reporter" says Kimmel's performance since moving to 10:35 in January...may be why NBC made the change. "Jimmy Kimmel is a much younger host. he came out of the box doing very well. ...I think NBC felt like it was time to put somebody younger in the tonight show chair. "

 Nationally, Jimmy Kimmel is beating David Letterman and is closing in on Jay Leno...who remains #1 in late night.
