NBC announced today that The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has been extended for another five years. The news is not really a surprise, as reports have been circulating for some time that Fallon had already secured a new contract back in late 2020.

Jimmy Fallon hosts this seventh incarnation of the 'Tonight Show' on NBC. He has been the face of the storied franchise since 2014 when he took it over from Jay Leno. Airing weeknights at 11:35pm, the show features an opening monologue, comedy sketches, interviews with celebrities, and games that often include competitions between Fallon and his guests.
