News: Jimmy Fallon to succeed Conan on "Late Night"

Variety is reporting this afternoon that Jimmy Fallon will most likely be announced as successor to Conan O'Brien when Conan takes over for Jay Leno on the "Tonight Show" next year.

NBC was planning on making the announcement to advertisers next month at a gathering at 30 Rock, but the news was reported on a Fox News web report, making it likely the Peacock network will have to make the announcement much sooner.

Insiders also say that Conan will likely take off about six months between his final "Late Night" and first "Tonight Show."
