Here, ironically enough, is the ultimate proof that Jimmy Fallon should take over for Jay Leno: a congenial duet between the two men commiserating about the media flap and speculation that Fallon will replace Leno in 2014, singing "Tonight" from West Side Story rewritten to suit their story. It's a bit of satiric and public relations genius, acknowledging and trying to defuse the rumors at the same time. (UPDATE: Two days after this video appeared, NBC announced that Fallon would take over Tonight in February; everyone obviously knew this was coming and decided to spin the transition right this time.)
