'Tonight Show' Studio Overhaul for Fallon Halted


NBC has scaled back its plans to build Jimmy Fallon a new "Tonight Show" studio in New York. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has put a stop to the $25 million studio overhaul for "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" after months of preparation.

The plan was supposed to combine Studios 6B and 8G for a massive new "Tonight Show" studio. However, Fallon will now get a $5 million makeover of his current home, Studio 6B.

Reports of the New York move and massive makeover originally surfaced in March, even before NBC officially announced Fallon as Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" replacement.

"Saturday Night Live" executive producer Lorne Michaels, who also serves as executive producer on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," will move over to "The Tonight Show" with Fallon.

NBC officially named Fallon as Leno's successor in early April. "Congratulations Jimmy. I hope you're as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you're the old guy. If you need me, I’ll be at the garage," Leno said in a statement at the time of the announcement.

It's gonna be such a hot mess and I'm already cringing for everyone bound to be screwed over by another inevitable NBC fuckup.
