Fallon snarked, “For nearly 30 years, I’ve brought laughter into the homes of millions and charmed audiences from the stages of 30 Rock. It’s been a privilege to be at the helm of The Tonight Show and I’m thrilled to see what innovations me and the incredible staff will deliver in the years to come at the network. No, I’m not changing my quote. Tell Mark to change his.”

The news comes a month after Seth Meyers‘ contract was extended as host of NBC’s Late Night; both shows just celebrated 10 years with their respective SNL veterans as hosts.
