NBC ramped up its fight to gain a younger late-night audience by confirming Wednesday that Jimmy Fallon will take over as host of "The Tonight Show" in 2014. Ending weeks of gossip, NBC made the announcement that current host Jay Leno would end his hosting tenure next spring. Though Leno still is the most-watched late-night TV host, his hold on the coveted 18-49 bracket is tenuous. ABC this year moved its late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" from after 11:35 p.m. to 10:35 p.m. as his direct competition, and Kimmel has taken a narrow lead in viewers 18-34.

Hi there. I'm here today to talk to you about a new STD. It's very serious and very gross. It's called "Virgin Diaries. " If you are a person with eyes, a semi-functional brain and nothing to do on a Sunday evening, you may have already been infected with this dangerously unsexy virus. What is it? "Virgin Diaries" is a reality TV special centered on the lives of adult virgins. The special - which premiered last week - seems benign at first. You meet somewhat socially awkward virgins who, for various reasons, have not participated in sexy times.

NBC's provocative new drama, "Awake," begins simply enough. Det. Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs), his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) and their 15-year-old son Rex (Dylan Minnette) are involved in a car crash and one of them dies. Then things get a little confusing, but don't give up on "Awake" ( 9 p.m. March 1, NBC; 3.5 stars out of 4 ). After the crash, Britten finds himself moving between alternate lives. In one, his wife survives the wreck. When Michael goes to sleep in that existence, he awakens in another in which Rex is the one who lives.

If you're one of those viewers who isn't all that gleeful about "Glee," tonight's episode of "Community" should hit all the right notes. "Regional Holiday Music," airing at 7 p.m. Dec. 8 on NBC, skewers Fox's musical comedy, mocking everything that's wrong with the show from its overdone mash-ups to its obsession with Regionals - whatever those are. And it is hilarious. Just like at McKinley High School, no one at Greendale Community College cares for the too-peppy glee club.
