The second incarnation of NBC's Late Night franchise, O'Brien's program debuted in 1993 after David Letterman (who hosted the first incarnation of Late Night) moved to CBS to host Late Show opposite The Tonight Show. In 2004, as part of a deal to secure a new contract, NBC announced that O'Brien would leave Late Night in 2009 to succeed Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show.[2][3] Jimmy Fallon began hosting his version of Late Night on March 2, 2009.[4]
