Here we go again.

There’s word that NBC brass are ruminating over Jay Leno’s future — which would involve finally giving their current late-late guy comic, Jimmy Fallon, the coveted job as the host of The Tonight Show.

The latest rumblings about Leno [whose contract expires in 2014] come from various talent agents who admit they have quietly been contacted by NBC officials hoping to find a new late-late host who will eventually take over Fallon’s 12:35 a.m. time slot. (Via)

If Louie taught us anything last season, it’s that Chloë Sevigny will make you perform sexual acts on her in public, never visit Boston, and that this kind of anonymous late night gossip is often just a ploy for people to get people paid more (or less) money. It also showed us #tonightshowlouie2014.

I’d watch that.
