PASADENA, Calif. — NBC is preparing to remake its late-night lineup as Jay Leno exits as host of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and Jimmy Fallon begins as host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Monday (at 11 p.m. its first week following Olympics coverage, then moving back to its regular 10:35 p.m. time slot). At 11:30 p.m. Feb. 24, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” debuts.
Take note of that change in titles: “With Jay Leno” and “Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The word “Starring” hasn’t been used since Johnny Carson retired from “The Tonight Show” in 1992.
