But the Eye Network is keeping its plans close to the vest.
“There are a lot of surprises in store,” programming boss Nina Tassler teased this morning during a Q&A session with TV critics in Pasadena, California.
Jimmy Fallon will take over THE TONIGHT SHOW on February 17. An hour later, Seth Meyers will slide into Jimmy’s old seat on LATE NIGHT.
NBC is planning to use its coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics to promote both programs.
So where does that leave CBS and longtime rival THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN?
“Dave is an icon at the top of his game,” Tassler tells me. “So internally we have been preparing for that [transition] for a long time.
“Between booking, marketing, promos… Obviously we are thinking way ahead in how we can make it more exciting and promote Dave.”
Do you plan to watch Jimmy or Dave? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
