Jimmy FallonI hate to say I told you so, but I did. Tell you so. Who else has the balls, the brains, the brilliance (and the hair) to even consider replacing Conan O’Brien? The official announcement won’t be public til May 12, but it’s been confirmed this week that SNL alum Jimmy Fallon has been secured as the successor to Conan O’Brien’s Late Night show on NBC.

O’Brien will be moving to the 11:35 p.m. Tonight Show job following Leno’s retirement in 2009. Finally. Can you retire from comedy if you were never really funny to begin with? Although, something will hit the fan if Headlines goes into retirement too.

Celebrate below with “O’Brien” by M.Ward and Conor Oberst from their legendary Austin City Limts set.
