Remember my Jerry Seinfeld thought experiment? Never mind ...

Ken Levine, on his blog:
Watching the final Jay Leno show with Billy Crystal, who’s had as much work done as Joan Rivers, talking about old variety shows from the ‘60s, I could see why NBC made the switch. No one under 50 knew what they were talking about or cared. 
Valid point. Hey, remember when some screwball wondered if NBC wouldn't approach Jerry Seinfeld for The Tonight Show? That same Jerry Seinfeld just performed a standup routine on Fallon's new show grumbling about cell phones and email. He sounded like a 90-year-old luddite.

Here's something you won't hear a lot: maybe NBC has done the right thing.
