With Jimmy Fallon doing so well as "Tonight" show host, NBC's boss expresses no fear about who will replace David Letterman on CBS.
Letterman announced last week that he's retiring sometime next year.
Burke said Fallon's ratings since replacing Leno in February have surpassed NBC's expectations. No matter who replaces Letterman, Burke said he believes Fallon will still be the best in late-night TV.
