It appears that NBC didn't learn its lesson with Jay Leno from a few years ago; do not replace him on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon or anyone. It does not end well. For now, Fallon and Leno are taking things in stride.
Appearing in a skit together that takes place between when Leno throws to Fallon, the late night hosts put in a musical number where Jay knows he is being replaced but let's it be known he is not done. That he will go to Fox or even replace David Letterman if he has to, but he is not done.
Leno and Fallon are playing nice...for now. Jay will step aside in the fall of 2014 for Jimmy to take over the Tonight Show, which will move to New York in Fallon's Late Night studios at 30 Rock.
Remember Conan O'Brien? The Tonight Show was his...until NBC executives threw him off the show and replaces him with Jay Leno. the EXACT same executives, mind you, that NBC will be replacing Leno with Fallon this time around, even with Leno still number 1 in the ratings.
Conan has just signed a contract extension for his show with TBS until November 2015.
Leno has dominated in the ratings all year beating Letterman and Kimmel. Arsenio will return to late night with a feel of Fallon's show, stars and musical guests. Letting Arsenio stay and keeping Jay where he is at, will take away viewers from late night, but Leno would still be number 1. Moving Fallon will more than likely keep the Tonight Show number 1 without Leno and have higher ratings.
When your morning show is in shambles, when your prime time line-up except for The Voice is in the toilet, do you really mess with the only thing succeeding; your late night line-up? If your NBC, the answer is yes.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Leno to executives: NBC-ya..next Fall on another network!
Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake did "The History of Rap Part 4" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Friday night and those 2 white guys got down!
From the start, they did "Jump On It" and continued with Timberlake's Fat Boys beat boxing riff, to RUN DMC, Beastie Boys and LL Cool J classic cuts.
They went into the 90's with 2 Live Crew, Teddy Riley's Wrekx N Effect, Salt N Pepa, Snoop Dogg, Busta Ryhmes, Notorious B.I.G., Jay Z, Nelly, and more.
When they went the 2000's, they brought to the front Chamillionaire, Waka Flocka, and Macklemore & Ryan's Lewis "Thift Shop" back to Eminem's "Lose Yourself" to close out the set. Interesting they chose 2 white rap acts to end it. Hmm.
Enjoy "History of Rap 4" above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Pretty bad ass....

U all knew that PRINCE was going to perform on Jimmy Fallon if U have been on this site and following us on Twitter for the past month. We now know that PRINCE will be performing 2 songs on the show (1 for the show and the other a bonus song on the web only)....but we do not know which songs he will be doing.
Also, Mariah Carey will be interviewed on the show. It is actually the 4th anniversary of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon that night.
Live Out Loud (L.O.L.) debuted on Friday as well and is now for sale on 3rdEyeGirl.com along with a LIVE version of "Bambi" with 3rd Eye Girl, which consists of Donna Grantis, Hannah Ford Welton, & Ida Nielsen. The song was written by Liv Warfield.
On last weeks Spreecast with DrFunkenberry & Seth Everett, we were able to share with you some information on the new tracks "Boyfriend" (Demo) and "That Girl Thang" along with Montreux 2013 DVD info.
Here is a breakdown of that news:
1. "BOYFRIEND" was an outtake for a proposed compilation...This was the 2nd of 4 versions. Hence the demo tag.
2. "THAT GIRL THANG" was written, recorded and released all on the same day. (Feb. 17th)
3. MONTREUX JAZZ FEST 2013 IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT! THERE ARE 3 ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SHOWS PRINCE IS WORKING ON NOW. THE WHOLE EVENT WILL B FILMED FOR RELEASE IF THE RIGHT DEAL CAN BE STRUCK. THERE WAS NEVER AN OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE OF ANY MONTREUX PERFORMANCE. WHAT IS OUT THERE IS BOOTLEG AND MUSICIANS RECEIVE NO INCOME FROM IT.
Here is hoping that a Montreux deal can be reached!
We also were able to break the news of PRINCE playing the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival on August 4th..
We will be having another Spreecast this Wed. night which you can watch LIVE right HERE and access afterwards at any time. What will happen or break during the show? Will we have special guests this week? Tune in and find out!

Questlove and myself have been hinting about it for weeks but we can now finally say that PRINCE is set to perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday, March 1st! 3/1/13!
This will be PRINCE's first performance on Fallon's show.
Jimmy & Questlove are big time PRINCE fans. Some would say that Quest is the biggest fan of them all. One thing is for sure, it is gonna be awesome!
We wonder if Jimmy will interview PRINCE and talk to him about the PRINCEtagram from last week.
PRINCE will be in town for a Carnegie Hall Tribute to him hosted by Questlove. He will be in attendance.
We are hoping for an interview and perhaps Jimmy and PRINCE going one and one at table tennis!
The image we are using showed up in our mailbox. Thank U.
When we have more details on the performance, we will let U know!-DocFB
