Richard Roeper: Glad Ebert is at peace

Roger Ebert's friend and former co-host, Richard Roeper, describes the film critic as a larger-than-life guy with a passion for the movies. Ebert died at age 70, two days after revealing he had cancer again.

"I'm grateful today that he's actually at peace, and very grateful for the outpouring of sympathy and love that I'm hearing from people all the way from the president of the United States to guys on the street," says Roeper. "He had that everyman quality, which is what I think made him such a universally beloved critic."

Ebert and Roeper's show began in 2000, before Ebert was diagnosed with thyroid and salivary gland cancer. In 2006 he lost his jaw, and with it, the ability to speak and eat. That didn't stop Ebert from delivering his sharp-witted commentary on films and a variety of other topics on his blog.

Roger Ebert's influence and legacy

Anderson Cooper pays tribute to legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who died at the age of 70.

He started as a freelance writer for the "Chicago Sun Times" in 1966, but he never expected to make a career out of being a critic.

He once wrote a screenplay for a trashy hollywood movie called "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls." It bombed, so Ebert decided to stick with reviewing films instead of creating them.

In 1975 he became the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize. That same year he made his TV debut on a local station with rival Gene Siskel from the "Chicago Tribune." Three years later, the show went national on PBS.

Bill Carter: Fallon is replacing Leno

New York Times reporter Bill Carter says "The Tonight Show" is moving back to New York with Jimmy Fallon as the new host.

"I don't think they know dates certain when this is going to happen," Carter tells Anderson Cooper. "For one thing, they're now building a studio for Jimmy Fallon in New York, which I think is the real news." The late night talk show has been taped in Los Angeles for 41 years.

Leno, 62, is still a ratings winner, but ABC recently moved Jimmy Kimmel's show to 11:35 p.m, which could factor into NBC's plans.

Carter says despite Leno's popularity, Kimmel may attract younger viewers over time and establish himself as the top choice with the key demographic most important to advertisers.
