Picture - Jay Leno at Saturday Night Live

Jay Leno - Beloved U.S. TV personality Jay Leno gave a tearful sign off as the host of The Tonight Show after 22 years on Thursday (06Feb14). The end of an era marked the second time Leno had quit the show since taking over hosting duties from iconic U.S. TV host Johnny Carson in 1992 - in 2009, he announced he was ending his run, and Conan O'Brien stepped in as his replacement. Poor ratings and politics led to Leno's return in 2010. Former Saturday Night Live regular Jimmy Fallon will take over as the host of The Tonight Show from Monday (17Feb14), when the programme returns to New York for the first time since Carson brought it to California in 1972. Shown on YouTube - Los Angeles, United States - Friday 7th February 2014
