When will Jay Leno end his "Tonight Show" run? | NBC

Jay Leno's last episode as host of "The Tonight Show" will reportedly air on Thursday, February 6, 2014, according to Variety.

It has already been reported that Jimmy Fallon will take over the late-night hosting gig on February 24, 2014, when the show moves to New York and Fallon hands over his "Late Night" throne to fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Seth Meyers.

If this latest news is true, that will leave a two-week break in NBC's late-night schedule between Leno ending his run as host in Los Angeles and Fallon taking over in New York.

According to Deadline, Leno's cast and crew will continue to be paid until his contract expires in September, which was reportedly part of the host's exit deal with NBC.

NBC is set to air its coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics from February 6 through February 23.

The Huffington Post reached out to the network for confirmation, but NBC declined to comment.
