When Jimmy Fallon takes over "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno in February 2014, he's not just getting an upgrade in his start time, he's also getting a billing promotion.
As first pointed out by the Huffington Post, Fallon's "Tonight Show" will be titled "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." That's a throwback to late-night king Johnny Carson's reign, when the show was titled "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson."
Both hosts to take over the show after Carson, Leno and Conan O'Brien, got a less prestigious "With" in the title. And Fallon currently hosts "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."
The upgrade in title could be a move, if somewhat minor, to set Fallon apart from his other late-night competition, Jimmy Kimmel, who hosts "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on ABC and "Late Show With David Letterman."
