Awesome news for former SNL-er Jimmy Fallon -- and his fans -- as the funny man has just been named the new host of NBC's Late Night, after current host Conan O'Brien takes over Jay Leno's spot in June 2009.
"Jimmy is more than just a likable guy and a great comedian, he is genuinely interested in what people have to say," Ben Silverman, co-chair of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios said at a press conference in NYC.
Jimmy is having a fab few months, he recently got married and now has this new, high-profile gig to look forward to. Good for him -- he deserves it and he's so freakin' funny. Definitely worth staying up late for.
