Jimmy Fallon's pretty confident ... history won't repeat itself with Jay Leno angling to re-capture his "Tonight Show" gig.
We got Jimmy at LAX Friday night ... he has no fear of ending up on cable -- like Conan O'Brien. Of course you remember when Jay was 86d the first time around ... he schemed for his job back and NBC obliged after having a serious cases of buyer's remorse.
Jimmy's show fires up after the Olympics ... and the big advantage he has over Conan ... Jay won't sink the ship at 10P.
Jay Won't Jack My Job
