The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Falllon isn’t ending anytime soon. NBC just renewed the show for five years.

“This year alone, Jimmy is the executive producer, creator and/or star of six projects. So, of course, we have The Tonight Show, which I’m very excited to say that we’ve renewed officially for five year. We have Clash of the Cover Bands on E!. And at NBC, we are reimagining the 1960s game show Password, That’s My Jam, an animated holiday special called 5 More Sleeps ’til Christmas, based on his children’s book. And at Peacock, we have The Kids Tonight Show,” Susan Rovner, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman, said during NBCUniversal’s upfront presentation.

Fallon took over for Jay Leno and has been hosting the show since February 2014. Over The Tonight Show‘s history, Conan O’Brien, Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, and Steve Allen have hosted the show.

Viewership for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has fallen short behind CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
