A few weeks from now, the late-night TV landscape will look drastically different, what with current 'Late Night' host Jimmy Fallon taking over 'The Tonight Show' from Jay Leno, while 'SNL''s resident Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers graduates to 'Late Night' in turn. The first promos for these takeovers have emerged, but will everything be ready in time for opening night?
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Up until now, almost every actor in Hollywood has been asked for their reaction on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in 'Batman vs. Superman' (as if their opinion mattered at all), when the one person we wanted to hear from - Affleck himself - has stayed completely silent.
Until now. Affleck appeared on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night and talked about why he wanted to star as Batman, his reaction to the internet freak out and why his radio silence wasn't an accident.
We're still not quite sure if we're ready to laugh at 'Breaking Bad' when AMC moves forward on the 'Better Call Saul' spinoff, but fortunately Jimmy Fallon knows just how to strike the tone. Fallon's latest 'Late Night' parody sees the future 'Tonight Show' host "Joking Bad" with some incredible and surprising cameos, the best way to start your morning.
It's no secret that 'Breaking Bad''s final premiere episode "Blood Money" knocked the socks off fans and critics alike, effectively doubling its viewership since last year's season 5 premiere "Live Free or Die." And while the AMC drama continues riding high in its final eight episodes, the web has responded in kind with a new Jimmy Fallon spoof in the works, and an animated adaptation of Badger (Brandon Mayhew)'s hilarious 'Star Trek' pitch!
Just before the weekend we showed you a preview of Jimmy Fallon's latest 'Late Night' parody for 'Game of Thrones' "Game of Desks," in which the future 'Tonight Show' host transformed NBC's Rockefeller plaza into the world of Westeros (or "Rockefell," to be more accurate), featuring Fallon as Ned Stark himself with a host of other characters. The full video has made its way online, so check out the 'Game of Thrones' parody "Game of Desks"!
Previously, we'd seen 'Late Night' and future 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon take on the likes of both 'Jersey Shore' and 'Downton Abbey,' but never something quite so epic as 'Game of Thrones!' Tonight will see the debut of Fallon's "Game of Desks," transforming NBC's Rockefeller Center into the likes of Westeros with Fallon as Ned Stark himself, so get a sneak peek at the new 'Game of Thrones' parody inside!
'SNL' will say goodbye to eight-year veteran Bill Hader this weekend, potentially Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen as well during the Ben Affleck-hosted season finale, but newly-minted 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers isn't going anywhere yet. The 'Weekend Update' host and head writer will remain with the sketch comedy series through 2014, before taking over Jimmy Fallon's late-night hosting gig. Find out how long Seth Meyers sticks around for inside!
Just yesterday we learned that 'Arrested Development' season 4 had yet to reveal all of its guest stars, even as we approach the May 26 debut of all 15 Netflix episodes, but it seems another major name has slipped out of the bag. 'The Office' and 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms will put in an appearance for 'Arrested Development's' return, and you don't have to wait to see it!
For weeks, even months now we've heard the buzzing rumors all-but-confirming that Jimmy Fallon would take over NBC's 'Tonight Show' from Jay Leno, with 'SNL' vet Seth Meyers likely to replace Fallon as the host of NBC's 'Late Night.' Leno and Fallon even collaboratively joked about the transition on April Fools, but has Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' takeover been officially confirmed? Hear the latest chatter inside!
