SHARE Jay Leno's "Tonight" exit date revealed

LENO’S LAST: It’s official. Jay Leno’s last night hosting the “Tonight” show will be Feb. 6. Dateline.com reported the long-running late-night chatfest’s executive producer Debbie Vickers informed the show’s staff of that Friday — also adding the cast and crew on “Tonight” will be paid through the end of Leno’s contract, which expires in September.

Though NBC declined to officially comment on the report, it does not come as a huge surprise, since the network previously had said Leno would end his 22-year-run as “Tonight” host during the week leading up to the 2014 Winter Olympics, which begin on NBC Feb. 7.

Jimmy Fallon will replace Leno on “Tonight” on Feb. 24, the night after the Winter Games closing ceremony.
