Recently, the long-standing debate of NBC’s late-night lineup came to a major milestone as Jimmy Fallon was announced to take over ‘The Tonight Show‘ from Jay Leno in 2014, while ‘SNL‘ veteran Seth Meyers remains the rumored frontrunner to take over NBC’s ‘Late Night’ from Fallon. Now, an NBC executive reportedly told The New York Times that NBC’s late night will soon receive another major jolt, as former ’30 Rock’ star Alec Baldwin has entered negotiations for his own talk show.
