The future of late night could look very different in a few years, if rumors of Jay Leno's retirement and Jimmy Fallon's ascension as host of a New York-based 'Tonight Show' prove true. And while both the 'Tonight Show' and 'Late Night' hosts have taken a few playful jabs at NBC and the rumors, April Fools gave the pair their best spotlight yet, performing a lip-synced duet of "Tonight, Tonight" in between the shows. Have a look inside!
Far-flung a future as it might seem to imagine Jimmy Fallon at the helm of 'The Tonight Show' in New York by the year 2014, it's even stranger to consider the next generation of late-night wars being set up. If indeed Jimmy Fallon leaves behind NBC's 'Late Night' for 'The Tonight Show' at any point in the future, who might replace him in the subsequent slot? Is 'SNL' veteran and current head writer Seth Meyers on the short list?
After yesterday's report that Jimmy Fallon would take over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno early next year, both hosts took the stage on their respective shows last night and delivered their opening monologues. One joked about the news; the other did not. It's probably not that hard to figure out who's who.
Years after 'The Tonight Show' debacle between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien has fallen off our radars, recent rumblings have all-but-confirmed that 'Late Night' host and 'SNL' alum Jimmy Fallon will take the 'Tonight Show' mantle from Leno in 2014. Now, recent reports have surfaced that Fallon will not only replace Jay Leno next year, but that 'The Tonight Show' will return to its original home in New York City as well! Find out if the rumors are true inside!
Jon Stewart may be one of the hardest working men on television, but it looks like he's about to take a break from hosting 'The Daily Show' for a few months. But he's not going on a vacation: he's going to direct a movie. 'Rosewater' will not only be Stewart's first time behind the camera, it will be something completely out of his regular wheelhouse.
A joke ten years in the making, last night Jimmy Kimmel fans were in for a treat as the oft-put upon Matt Damon finally got his revenge on the late-night host. No longer would Kimmel close his every 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' broadcast with "apologies to Matt Damon," but rather the prolific movie star duct-taped Kimmel to a chair and took over the program from the beginning. Along with a host of guest stars including Robin Williams and Ben Affleck, check out Damon's take-over of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' inside!
Last night on Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey was a guest but her performance didn't even make it to 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.' Before the show, Jimmy, Mariah, The Roots and a bunch of schoolkids got together to sing a stripped down performance of Mariah's holiday classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and that might've won Christmas in the process.
