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?
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
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.
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?
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. Check out the exclusive internet video below.
Tom Hanks has been popping up on as many talk shows as he can muster to promote his latest film 'Cloud Atlas,' and he'll do just about anything to grab peoples' attention. Everything, that is, from dropping the F-bomb on 'Good Morning America' to making a random appearance on 'SNL.'
His latest stunt came courtesy of 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' in the form of some 'Full House'-themed slam poetry. Watch his riveting performance after the jump.
Fans of NBC's long-running meta series '30 Rock' no doubt appreciate the manic celebrity humor of Tracy Jordan, which unquestionably owes to the real-life quirkiness of star and former 'SNL' player Tracy Morgan. Still, with Morgan's most stable gig coming to a close, and the comedian's notorious tendency to get himself in trouble, should fans be worried about Tracy Morgan? Tina Fey certainly seems to think so, but why?
