Gabrielle Union was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night and talked about going to Hollywood parties with Chris Rock and going to PRINCE's house for one of his legendary parties.
Gabrielle talked about being shy and telling the music superstar that she should have brought a tuna casserole to the party. Yea...no. Maybe some chamomile tea and a large size honey instead. Don't forget to check out Top 5 hitting theaters soon!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Fallon needs to work on his Prince impression. Was amazing the previous times he did it.
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!
Howard Stern is getting ready to promote him being judge on "America's Got Talent" but just do not expect him to be on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" for NBC.
NBC, the network that airs "America's Got Talent" has already asked Howard to be on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and the King of All Media is refusing to do it.
Why won't he do it? Hit the continue reading button below.
I am not going to make you search for what NBC knew and TBS is just finding out about Conan. I am going to say it right now. Conan O'Brien is a better follower than a lead-in. The only thing saving Conan from being cancelled like "Lopez Tonight" is his ad buy rate and that he got nominated for an Emmy.
Conan is on cruise control and if he can shift into high gear, he will be getting cancelled this time next year. It is just how he was on "The Tonight Show" when he took over. Only after getting threatened by NBC to put Leno back did Conan switch into high gear and become funny. Now, he is back to his usual self, even shaving off his beard a couple of months ago.
I am not going to hate on Leno. Anyone with a brain should have known they gave him that 10 p.m. time slot just in case Coco couldn't do it. Why couldn't he see that? Just because an executive says you have a job doesn't mean you stop trying n act like you don't need to do anything but show up. You hear everything about Leno. He is unfunny. Safe. Old. Tired out. You never hear about his work ethic. He kills it. That is why "The Tonight Show" was back to number 1 as soon as Jay was put back in the seat.
Jimmy Fallon's success is mainly because Leno is a good lead-in for him. If NBC did not pull Conan when they did, it would have been Fallon getting cancelled and Lopez still on at 11 going strong. Conan sucks as a lead-in. George's ratings at 11 were fine but have him follow Conan at 12, Conan was losing 40% of the viewership before G.Lo even went on the air.
There was a reason last year when I said Fox should sign Conan to late night but bring "Lopez Tonight" to Fox and let George be the lead-in and Conan the follower. If TBS wasn't so hard for Conan and his demands, George would have been the 11 P.M. guy and Conan would have followed and they both would still have a job.
Conan was the man from 2002 til 2005. Almost 10 years ago. Jimmy Kimmel is edgier and that is saying something. Fallon tries harder . He stopped laughing at his own jokes and has that Leno lead-in. Bottom line; If Conan is better than Jay, he better start proving it already.-Dr.FB
