NBC's Late Night with... Jimmy Fallon!?

In two years, Conan O'Brien will be making the jump to 11:35 to replace Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show. And that's a good thing. We like Conan - his skits are consistently funny and he does a good job of establishing a rapport with his guests, including the ones the publicity machine forcefeeds him. Sure, maybe he runs the occasional joke into the ground - see last year's President of Finland business for an example - but, for the most part, he's the best thing going on late-night television. Handily.

His move, of course, means that NBC has to replace him. Fortunately, they don't seem to be planning on ceding the spot to Carson Daly, the man whose show comes on after Conan's. Smart move, NBC.

But unfortunately, according to published reports, the do have a replacement in mind who is probably about as bad:

Ugh. Somebody give them Demetri Martin's number or something.
