"I think he's had a good run, I think it's time for a change, he thinks it's time for a change, I think it's going to be great."
Jay Leno fan, Dixie Tung,
"There's just something about it that you just want to be a part of it, it's a historical moment and there's no one quite like Jay Leno."
Leno is handing the reins over to fellow comedian Jimmy Fallon, who will be bringing "The Tonight Show" back to its New York roots for the first time since 1972.
