Here we go again with reports that NBC is looking to ditch Jay Leno. But this time, the ditching makes eminent sense. The Hollywood Reporter, citing unnamed sources, says NBC is putting the pieces in place to announce in May that Leno will be replaced in latenight  at the end of the 2013-2014 season by Jimmy Fallon. Why not? Leno, whose contract is up in 2014, is yesterday - and then some. He can still draw overall ratings, but you can't sell overall ratings the way you can sell the 18 to 49 or even 25-54 demographics.

There were also presidential primaries that made Mitt Romney all but official as the GOP candidate. But all anyone will be talking about this morning is President Barack Obama slow jamming the news with latenight host Jimmy Fallon at the University of North Carolina.

FALLON, Nev. - This is how tough the folks are who live here: They make jokes about the arsenic they drink. Fallon, population 8,300, calls itself "the Oasis of the Desert." But it's also the arsenic capital of America. A study of EPA data from 25 states by the Natural Resources Defense Council in 2000 found that Fallon's water system delivered more arsenic to its customers than any other large system, defined as one serving at least 3,300 people. And so last month, when Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Christine Todd Whitman rescinded a Clinton administration decision to reduce the allowable levels of arsenic in U.S. tap water by 80 percent, the folks here didn't blink an eye. Without complaint, generations of Fallon residents have been drinking water with arsenic levels twice as high as the old limit, and they don't want to pay for a $10 million treatment plant.
