Jimmy Fallon has become one of most talked-about celebrities of late, grabbing the 'most trending' and 'hot searches' spots of most internet search engines, as the American prepares to succeed the legendary Jay Leno as the host of 'The Tonight Show'.
Late night talk show hosts Jay Leno (L) and Jimmy Fallon pose backstage at the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, January 13, 2013.
There will be lot of NCB late-night viewers as Leno wraps his turn on the celebrated talk show. The Leno-hosted 'The Tonight Show' will air its last episode on 6 February, which will mark the much-awaited entry of Fallon.
Last night saw the final Friday edition of the show with big ratings. The deadline reported that the show scored a 3.9 in metered-market households, which was its best in 15 months. On 24 October 2012, when President Barack Obama was a guest, the rating was 4.0.
Meanwhile, Fallon, 39, has ended his stint at "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and has now become the new talk of the town. Google Trends tagged him as one of the 'hot searches' early on 2 February with more than 50,000 search entries on the name, at the time of writing this article.
As he now gets ready for a new venture, the Boston Globe reported that Fallon recalled begging his parents once to let him stay up late watching the show, when Johnny Carson used to be the host. "Because I knew it was on really late and I was getting away with something," he said.
"A lot of people are saying, 'Is this your dream job?' And my answer is it wasn't at all my dream job because I didn't know that this could be a job that you could dream about," Fallon was quoted as saying.
Now it remains to be seen how well Fallon will fare in the job he could not even dream of.
