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!
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
Diagnosis: Late Night & New York, Are U Ready????
Not only will Justin Timberlake be the host and guest of Saturday Night Live March 9th, he will be on Jimmy Fallon for the entire week of March 11th through March 15th!
When Justin has guested or hosted SNL, it has been some of their funnier episodes.
How could we forget Jimmy & Justin performing the "History Of Rap" with parts 1 & 2 above.
Justin Timberlake's new album "The 20/20 Experience" comes out March 19th-DocFB
Diagnosis: Another History Of Rap?
On "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" last night, Jimmy revealed a new iPhone app called the PRINCEtagram. It is when you take a photo of yourself and it turns it into a PRINCE album cover.
Jimmy's photo turned into the "Controversy" album cover. Higgen's turned into....well....you knew they were going to go there.
Wonder why Questlove didn't do one. I would have loved to see him rocking the "Prince" album cover.
Why do we have a feeling someone is going to make an app like this soon?-DocFB
Also, Neon Hitch will also be performing this Thursday August 16th, on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
For those wondering, Neon Hitch is her real name and she is a real life gypsy as well.
"Gold" is the 2nd single off of Neon's upcoming record entitled "Beg, Borrow, And Steal" the first single was "F U Betta" and followed her guest spot on the Gym Class Heroes song "Ass Back Home".
The new album is produced by Benny Blanco who has produced for Wiz Khalifa, Britney Spears, and Katy Perry to name a few.
Check out "Gold" above and let us know what U think. We think we might be hearing more from Neon Hitch real soon!-DocFB
Fiona Apple performed "Anything We Want" with The Roots backing her up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night and the singer was amazing and....looking somewhat older.
I mean, we saw footage of her by SXSW earlier this year and she didn't look like this. She performed new material from "The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do" or the shorter title "The Idler Wheel" and it went over well with the crowd.
Fiona also did a weird interview with Fallon bringing a pool ball with her to the interview.
In honor of Paul McCartney's birthday, the singer covered "Let Me Roll It" with The Roots backing her up.
I am digging her new song but what is catching your attention more; her sound or how much older she looks?-DocFB
John Mayer sat in with The Roots band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and also did an interview.
Mayer talked at length about his throat issues that are keeping him from singing. Although, he did sing a chapter of the "50 Shades Of Grey" book from his Kindle.
Fallon also brings up where when Mayer first came out as "Little Johnny Mayer" and talking about working with Eddie Vedder.
Mayer also says he will continue to wear his hat no matter what anyone says. Guess since he can't sing, he is answering a lot of questions about the hat.
What do U think of the hat?-DocFB
Woo hoo! Pulp performed on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" the band's first TV appearance in American in 14 years! They performed "Common People" and "Like A Friend" as web exclusive.
We dig Jarvis Cocker and the boys from Pulp. They are playing 2 sold out shows this week at Radio City Music Hall and the upcoming Coachella Music Festival.
We hope you enjoy the clips above of Pulp bringing it. Hope even more shows get added soon!-DocFB
Jimmy Fallon & Joseph Gordin-Levitt did Karaoke songs with Jimmy as David Bowie & Joseph as Axl Rose. Oh my!
Fallon did "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster The People and then Levitt did "Since You've Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson. Yea, it is funny as it sounds.
They did "Edge Of Glory" by lady Gaga together as Bowie and Axl. Shakes head. Classic.
Check it out above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The Doc Does NOT Karaoke. At All.
