  • People Are Justifiably Infuriated With How Jimmy Fallon Handled Trump

    The Huffington Post ^ | September 16, 2016 | Maxwell Strachan, senior editor
    “The Tonight Show” host humanized a dangerous man on Thursday night. Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on “The Tonight Show” Thursday night, and all some people could talk about afterward was a head rub. Toward the end of the interview, Fallon asked the Republican presidential nominee if he could mess up his famous head of hair on live TV, leading to raucous applause and the sort of bite-sized video that both the creators and consumers of internet media eat up. Before the rub, Fallon did sneak in a few subtle quips, like asking Trump if he knew what a coin...

    And so we come to the age-old question: Should politicians do comedy? Ted Cruz tested the limits in this sketch with NBC’s Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon, pretending to take a call — and some advice — from Donald Trump. Cruz has been looking to expand his personal connection with voters, but does this work?CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Fallon goes on to offer the Texas senator some advice for his appearance on the “Tonight Show.”“Well that’s a very generous offer, Donald.” Cruz says. “I appreciate you being the bigger man.”“Oh I’m the bigger man, with the bigger...

    NBC is worried Jimmy Fallon's drinking may be getting out of control after The Tonight Show host injured himself for a third time in four months, sources claim. Last week the talk show host was spotted in New York City with band aids after injuring his hand at a Harvard party. Jimmy had been 'holding a bottle of Jagermeister' and greeting fans when he tripped over a woman who had bent down in front of him, People reported. He fell and landed on the broken glass. It's the third time the star has been hurt and sources say NBC are...

    Just when it seemed the late-night landscape couldn’t get more competitive, here comes Johnny Carson. Tribune Media’s Antenna TV, the multicast digital channel devoted to vintage television shows, will run full-length episodes of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” nightly at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT starting Jan. 1. Antenna TV has struck a multi-year deal with Carson Entertainment Group to license hundreds of hours of the NBC late-night institution. Antenna will run episodes that aired from 1972 through the end of Carson’s 30-year reign in in 1992. Because NBC owns the rights to “The Tonight Show” moniker, Antenna TV’s...

    Last night was David Letterman’s last night, if you wonder why there are suddenly more articles about him than he had viewers. It’s going to be weird without having his show to skip. Television will be a bit less joyless when night owls start their shifts with the aging baby retiring, although many insomniacs won’t even notice. The Late Show’s cultural impact is minimal enough that Chevy Chase wonders what he did wrong. The past makes the present disappointing: it’s hard to explain to people born after Letterman began manning this slot that he created a most inventive approach to...

    CBN News' Brody File ^ | April 9, 2014 | David Brody, CBN News Chief Political Correspondent
    The Brody File was watching Sarah Palin’s comedy bit on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and it made me wonder the following: Is Sarah Palin relevant? The answer is a bit complicated. Is she taking seriously as a politician by the liberal mainstream media? No. But do they still pay attention to her every move? Yes they do. Why is that? Yes, part of it has to do with the fact that there is a certain carnival atmosphere surrounding how she goes about her business. I mean, she knows how to command an audience and entertain. But let's not...

    LENO SIGNS OFF “I don’t like goodbyes – NBC does – but I don’t care for them,” an emotional Jay Leno said, kicking off a star-studded final broadcast show as host of The Tonight Show. “Tonight is our last show for real. I don’t need to be fired three times — I get the hint,” Leno joked to a friends-and-family studio audience as he ended his 22-year run Thursday night. It’s his second very-last-time-as-host — having been pushed aside in 2009 by NBC to make way for Conan O’Brien, who lasted seven months.“I’ve got to tell you, the outpouring...

    Anyone in the news business will tell you that a side benefit is the diverse number of people one gets to meet. Jay Leno, who leaves "The Tonight Show" on Feb 6 after a 22-year run (retire is not the right word in his case), is one such person. The circumstances surrounding our first meeting involved a column I wrote 15 years ago in support of his wife's activism on behalf of Afghan women. Jay and Mavis Leno invited my wife and me for a visit. Things progressed from there. Last October when we attended the show, I asked him...

    Sources say some network execs want to launch with Olympics in February; exec producer Lorne Michaels might want more time. It has become clear that Jimmy Fallon is going to become the host of The Tonight Show, but sources say an internal debate among key players is underway regarding the timing.According to these sources, some top executives at NBCUniversal are leaning toward a February launch to take advantage of the promotional platform of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Others, including Late Night executive producer Lorne Michaels, are said to have concerns about rushing the transition.STORY: Sources: NBC Discussing...

    Sarah Palin will not only help to re-launch Jay Leno’s second stint as The Tonight Show host but will serve as an example for other conservatives and those leaders in the Tea Party Patriot movement that late night can be a welcome home for its supporters and viewers. There are of course the naysayers on the left coast who believe that Jay Leno’s booking of Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show in such a high visibility slot only gives credence and support for a possible positioning of a run for the presidency in 2012 as well as a confirmation, of...

    I used to think Jay Leno was pretty unbiased becaue he always seemed to hand it out evenly to both sides. This year we face a presidential election and Leno has been worse than ever in his shows. He usually only makes 1-2 jokes per day about Kerry and they're usually only just about the size of his head. Rather with Bush, he frequently shows taped bumblings, ridicules his policy, and comments that infer Bush is stupid and untruthful. Screw Leno. Screw his program. I'm dome watching it. I can see through his bias programming. Liberal Lettermen and Liberal Leno...

    He may be only 8, but presidential expert Noah McCullough's on his way to being a star of late-night TV. Over the past three months, he's appeared twice on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, most recently last Tuesday when he got to meet former President Jimmy Carter. Now comes word that Tonight has invited him to appear on a Presidents Day show (Feb. 16), where Noah will show clips from interviews conducted during Super Bowl week here. The Katy third-grader will do a "Jaywalking" segment, asking passersby questions about the presidents. If things hold true to the "Jaywalking" form,...
