Nick Cannon looks dapper at the “America’s Got Talent” premiere.
Nick Cannon’s no stranger to TV hosting gigs — he already has “America’s Got Talent” and “Wild ’N Out” under his belt — but late-night TV is a completely different beast he’s yet to slay. Until now…? According to the online rumor mill, it might not be long before The Jack of All Trades gets a chance to take on the space where true comedy legends are crowned. TV Guide reports that NBC execs are currently considering Nick as Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night” successor!
Following the news of Fallon’s official “Tonight Show” takeover, the rumblings spread quickly about who’d replace the ex-“Saturday Night Live” star. Nick is one of three names supposedly being thrown around so far, with Jimmy’s former “SNL” co-star Seth Meyers and “Watch What Happens Live“’s Andy Cohen also said to be in the mix. According to TV Guide, insiders feel Nick is an option because he’s “a workhorse who would bring some much-needed diversity to NBC’s late-night programming.” And we concur! This would be HA-YUGE.
