After 22 years with The Tonight Show, Jay Leno has said goodbye to the late night show… again.

Leno has hosted the show for years — except for a brief stint in 2009 when he was let go and replaced by Conan O’Brien — after taking over for Johnny Carson.

He has called the gig as Tonight host “the greatest 22 years of my life.”  

Watch the video above to see Leno’s final monologue, in case you missed it Thursday night.

The Tonight Show will move to New York City with a new host — Jimmy Fallon.

"I'm really excited for Jimmy Fallon. It's fun to be the old guy and see where the next generation takes this great institution," he said. "And in conclusion, I want to quote Johnny Carson: 'I bid you all a heartfelt good night.' "

Will you miss Jay as host of Tonight? Or do you think it's time for a new host? Tell us in the comments below!

This has nothing to do with my local community. Why am I seeing this on Patch? I do not care about Jay Leno.

Chris: Not that you'd ever see it reported on Patch, but they gave up on being 'hyperlocal' several months ago when they got rid of most of their local editor staff. Most of their content (most of which is no longer news) now is nationally generated (seems like from New York/New Jersey/Connecticut), and seems to be targeted toward moms...

" I am guessing you have not lived here all that long Chris cause if you had you would know that Jay Leno grew up on Clark Road in Andover, went to Andover High School and still has lots of ties to his local community which is Andover.... that is why it is relevant.
