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!
Even though it took place several years ago, we all remember the big late-night showdowns that saw Jay Leno stepping down from the throne of 'The Tonight Show,' only to develop his own series immediately before Conan O'Brien's hosting turn, which ultimately saw the whole thing implode and returned Leno where he started. Now, new rumors suggest that Leno will finally step down in 2014 to be replaced by his 'Late Night' successor Jimmy Fallon, but is there any truth to the new late-night war on the horizon?
Sigh, was there ever a time in our lives where the various hosts of late night TV weren't in one feud or another? If there was, it probably wasn't while 'The Tonight Show's Jay Leno was around. Following recent comments from David Letterman describing late night rival Leno as "insecure," Jimmy Kimmel has launched an attack of his own on Leno in a new interview, describing the controversial host as having "sold out." Hear more about the bitter rivalry inside!
For as much as we've enjoyed Conan O'Brien's role as the host of his own TBS show 'Conan,' Jimmy Fallon's increasingly strong work on 'Late Night,' and even Jay Leno's seemingly peaceful return to 'The Tonight Show,' a new storm on the late-night front might be brewing. Some sources are saying that NBC executives have quietly begun searching for Fallon's replacement, in which case Fallon would take over for Leno as host of 'The Tonight Show' in the next few years. Is there any truth to the rumor?
The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be engraved in American history as one of the most tragic events, and the most impactful moment of our lifetime. But while the country collectively grieved over the human casualties, none were more affected than the residents of New York City. It was there that the devastation occurred and it was there that the survivors, the families of the victims and the city itself had to rebuild their lives.
At the time, most couldn't find the proper words to address the situation, but despite this challenge, it was left to all the late-night shows and media outlets that we often turn to for guidance to help us make sense of 9/11 and help us move on.
Recently it was announced that ABC would be moving 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to 11:35pm in 2013 where he would compete directly with 'The Tonight Show' and Jay Leno. The competition hasn't even started yet but Jimmy Kimmel already has some harsh words for the current king of late night.
This is a win-win situation. Emma Stone’s so impossibly charming that we’d happily post every talk-show appearance she’s ever made. How are you not won over by this personable beauty? But as an added bonus, she brings a new clip from ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ to NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’ See what I said? Win win.
