The word on the street is that NBC will replace Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
Well, Jay Leno is not going away quietly.
Via the The Hollywood Reporter:

The latest news comes as Leno continues to take jabs at NBC execs including Greenblatt, who reportedly sent Leno an email to back-off on the ridicule. On Monday’s show, Leno quipped during his monologue: “You know the whole legend of St. Patrick, right? St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland — and then they came to the United States and became NBC executives. It’s a fascinating story.”

On Tuesday, he made another joke: “Did you hear about this? A 28-year-old woman from Serbia has a rare brain condition where she sees everything upside down. The good news? She’s now been given a job at the White House as President Obama’s economic adviser. Isn’t that crazy? It’s unbelievable. She sees everything upside down. In fact, she thinks NBC is at the top of the ratings.”

And then there was this joke,

“And also look for President Obama next month on the cover of The Economist. It’s their annual April Fools issue.”
