    Jimmy Fallon will take over for Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show in 2014 --we know, the scenario is familiar. Hi, Conan O'Brien! Fallon's house band The Roots -Philly, yo!- have confirmed that they will head to the new gig with their boss.

    Drummer Questlove told FUSE TV, "The Tonight Show is coming to us; we're not going to The Tonight Show. The Tonight Show is coming to New York. Basically, it's going to be the same show. That's a year from now; anything can happen. Right now, we're just very concerned and just concentrating on still doing our thing at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. We're honored to receive the baton and pass down tradition."

    Will you watch The Tonight Show when Fallon takes over?
