The 62-year-old Leno's current contract expires next year. For NBC, the 38-year-old Fallon represents a bid to launch a next-generation host for "Tonight" — although Leno has kept the show No. 1 in the ratings despite a challenge from Jimmy Kimmel's ABC show, which was moved back an hour to compete with it.

Leno is currently winning with those 18-to-49 year olds, but Kimmel is closing in. Since Kimmel moved to 11:35 in January, he averages 936,000 viewers in the age group to Leno’s 1.017.

OK, I'll ask the question on everyone's mind: How the heck does .017 of a viewer watch TV?
Is there, perhaps, a word missing?

Well, it is an average.

I think the problem there is they meant 1.017 million.
