    The one personality I don't recall being mentioned in the whole Leno/Fallon thing is Lorne Michaels, producer of the current Fallon show and presumed producer of the new "Tonight Show" should Fallon take over. As co-creator and long-time producer of "Saturday Night Live" and producer of "30 Rock", Michaels' desire to take ownership of the vaunted "Tonight Show" franchise cannot be dismissed in view of his history with NBC Universal. What would end up being the major negotiation in such a move would not be Fallon's contract, but if NBC Universal would be willing to cede ownership of the "Tonight Show" to another producer as was the case for so many years with Carson.
