Conan O'Brien had nothing but good wishes for Jimmy Fallon after NBC named the latter to replace Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show next year.
Despite being forced out of his dream job two years ago when Leno decided to reclaim his late-night time slot, the flame-haired funnyman briefly addressed the peacock's succession plans a half-hour into Wednesday night's episode of his namesake TBS show.
"I want to congratulate Jimmy. That is a really fun gig," said a classy Conan to chuckles from the audience. "You laugh, it's a fun gig. And you know what? Jimmy is the perfect guy to do it. He's gonna do a fantastic job. So congratulations, Jimmy."
